In today’s world of construction the respect for the environment, the need for fast erection activities, the easiness of planning, just in time deliveries, the possibility of tracing the manufactured construction components, makes the use of steel frames a must for modern architects and construction companies.
FICEP understood, several years ago, that the supply of machinery is limited if you cannot optimize all the activities that are all along the manufacturing value stream. This is why Steel Projects became part of the FICEP group more than 20 years ago.
Today Steel Projects provides structural steel fabricators around the world an integrated and modular 3rd generation software solution, Steel Projects PLM, for product lifecycle management PLM. It is based on consistent, modern architecture and recognized technologies (Microsoft. NET and SQL SERVER).
The Steel Projects PLM provides a true link between the offices and the workshop. The possibility of streamlining the information from the detailing office down to manufacturing, shipping and erection makes the efficiency of the fabricator unprecedented.
The structural steel fabricator usually organizes his production schedule according to erection sequences. This important flexibility constraint has pushed FICEP to develop a whole range of software that goes from drawing data input to interface with CAD/BIM solutions. Automatic handling systems such as roller conveyors, transfer tables need fully integrated software to reduce overheads.
The capability of project managing the complete supply of structural steel turnkey solutions fulfilling the requirements above mentioned makes the FICEP’s scope of supply a benchmark in the structural steel and fabricating industry.
Where the need of managing assemblies, truck loads, batch routing, nesting, stock, deliveries, incoming raw material is needed FICEP has a solution for it and more details can be shown for each of the following fields:
- General Steel Structures
- Industrial Steel Structures
- Portal frames and single story buildings
- Pre-engineered Buildings
- Steel Towers
- Transmission and Telecom Towers
- Stairs, Handrails and miscellaneous
