Manufacturing Software

Manufacturing Software - Manufacturing software is the tool that allows metal fabricators and manufacturers to stay in control of their operations. Enterprise resource planning and other shop management software give fabricators the ability to estimate the time and cost of jobs, schedule those jobs for production, and track them on the shop floor. Computer-aided design (CAD) software is used to generate part designs. Nesting software analyzes the parts to be produced and determines how to lay out these parts on sheet, plate, or a tube to be cut. Computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software programs the CNC machine to cut the parts from the metal blanks. Manufacturing execution systems, quality control tools, and simulation are other products that are covered in this area.
