Integrated Mill Procurements and Costing (IMPACT)
Commodities like scrap, additives and scrap substitutes aren’t bought like traditional consumables, capital equipment or contracted services. That’s where traditional ERP “supply chain management” systems fall far short of the mark, providing a great “tool” for traditional procurement scenarios, but lacking targeted functionality for commodity procurement.
For example, try accruing multiple freight or miscellaneous charges against a load of scrap. Or, create a purchase order and receive shipments against commodities that are un-priced or carry an estimated price that is to-be-determined. These real-world problems play havoc with traditional ERP systems.
