We're delighted to announce that Tata BlueScope Building Solutions, a business division of Tata BlueScope Steel and one of the leading PEB companies in the SAARC region, has recently implemented STRUMIS in their business.
The Tata BlueScope Building Solutions business division has chosen STRUMIS to increase productivity as well as efficiency throughout the production process and is confident that the product will prove to be an ideal solution, which will both enable the business to become more streamlined and improve production capabilities.
STRUMIS provides integrated nesting of steel, enabling efficient cutting plan generation, minimising waste and maintaining the highest quality standards. The integration between the STRUMIS system and the Messer Hypertherm Plasma Cutting Machine used by Tata BlueScope Building Solutions has reduced their wasted materials by almost 50%. Thus, the Building Solutions business is now able to optimise material usage by utilising the STRUMIS Material Calculator.
The estimating module of STRUMIS has also proved to be helpful to Tata BlueScope Building Solutions as it ensures automatic generation of tenders; allows import of BIM models into the software and automatically provides quotations. This aspect of STRUMIS gives the Building Solutions business the ability to submit highly competitive tenders, while ensuring that acceptable profitability is achieved by incorporating all fixed and variable costs into the estimate via parametric relationships.
Commenting on the successful implementation of STRUMIS; S. Mahesh, Chief of Engineering, Tata BlueScope Building Solutions said, "Having reviewed all available options, we found that STRUMIS provides a complete solution for integrating our BIM workflow into fabrication. It provides us real benefits such as savings in the associated time as well as enhanced accuracy in estimating and tendering."
