Integrating ERP and CAD Design Software—White Paper
This white paper from Global Shop Solutions, posted to the MetalForming magazine Multimedia Center, explains how integrating ERP and CAD software can allow metalformers to avoid production delays when designs change, to prevent cost overruns and missed due dates. CAD interfaces, the document explains, enable the electronic creation of bills of materials (BOMs) and the seamless updating of BOMs, transferring data directly to the shop floor via an ERP system.

Here's the white paper (website log-in required).

More Space in Press Rooms
