When the paper is piling up…

When the paper is piling up… when you can’t find the drawings you’re looking for… when you’re struggling to share the information on a project… STRUMIS is there to lend a helping hand.

For any project in the Steel Fabrication Industry, there is huge amount of data involved and hence data management becomes imperative. We estimate that every part or component in the Steel Factory will have over 10 pieces of documents including heat / cast references, material certificates, part drawings, assembly drawings, mill origin certificates, inspection reports, NC / CNC files and much more.

To manage this yourself is an enormous task, and can lead to an incredible amount of paper being used; which can be easily lost or misplaced.

Documents stored in STRUMIS provide evidence of documents under control. Failing to comply can cause fines, the loss of business, or damage to a business’ reputation.

The following are important aspects of document control within STRUMIS

  • Reviewing and approving documents prior to release
  • Reviews and approvals

  • Ensuring that relevant versions of applicable documents are available at their “points of use”
  • Ensuring that documents remain legible and identifiable
  • Ensuring that external documents (such as customer-supplied documents or supplier manuals) are identified and controlled
  • Preventing “unintended” use of obsolete documents
