BlueScope Buildings North America, Inc. Manages Engineer-to-Order Process Across Multiple Plants
BlueScope Buildings North America, wanted to manage a complex, engineer-to-order process for the company's large-scale and unique building products, which can use between 10,000 to 15,000 different raw materials and support company growth and change subsequent mergers that have resulted in a more complex multiplant planning process, requiring precise synchronization to produce each building. The challenge was to reduce cost throughout the manufacturing process and accelerate the margin analysis process. BlueScope Buildings North America implemented Oracle Configurator to replace a homegrown raw materials selection system, enabling users to more efficiently and accurately capture customer requirements and square footage and match them to product options and volume.
