World Refractories production in 2022 will be 59 MnMT. The iron and steel industry is the major end-user of refractories, mainly used in internal linings of furnaces, different types of refractories are used depending on temperatures and service conditions of applications such as boilers, Blast furnaces, kilns, ovens, etc..

BSS ERP for Refractories Manufacturing Industry is designed to handle complete needs in the most efficient, effective & accurate way. BSS ERP has continuously evolved since 1999 and BSS ERP is committed to providing an industry-specific, comprehensive, and robust ERP solution for Chemical Industry. BSS ERP technical expertise and mapping of key requirements is the key behind its success BSS Refractories ERP Software is designed to provide complete visibility across all supply chain, Logistics, Inventory, and financials.

Refractories are produced in two basic forms, formed objects, and unformed granulated or plastic compositions.

The general requirements of a refractory material can be summed up as

  1. Its ability to withstand high temperatures and trap heat within a limited area like a furnace.
  2. Its ability to withstand the action of molten metal, hot gasses and slag erosion, etc;
  3. Its ability to withstand load at service conditions;
  4. Its ability to resist contamination of the material with which it comes into contact;
  5. Its ability to maintain sufficient dimensional stability at high temperatures and after/during repeated thermal cycling;
  6. Its ability to conserve heat. Properties of Refractories Important properties of refractories are chemical composition, bulk density, apparent porosity, apparent specific gravity, and strength at atmospheric temperatures. These properties are often among those which are used as ‘’control points’’ in the manufacturing and quality control.
Manufacturing Module

The demand for the Enterprise resource planning system within the manufacturing industry has increased significantly with the growing need to improve floor efficiency for quicker delivery and to reduce the costs of products and services.

Manufacturers view ERP modules as a means to pursue digital transformation and gain a competitive edge. Manufacturing ERP modules automate tedious manual business processes and provide accurate, real-time information. This helps reduce inefficiencies and redundancies while helping users navigate through complex processes — thereby significantly boosting productivity. Let us take a look at the above ERP modules for the manufacturing industry and greater detail.

ERP For All Manufacturing Process

BSS has deployed ERP for manufacturing business in both repetitive manufacturing and job shop manufacturing operations, such as:

  • Make-to-stock manufacturing
  • Make-to-order manufacturing
  • Mixed-mode manufacturing
  • Assembly operations
  • Job shop production
  • Repetitive manufacturing
  • Batch manufacturing

ERP is accounting and operations-oriented and features one database as a master source of enterprise information. ERP for manufacturing is used to identify and plan the resource needs of the entire enterprise. ERP provides one user interface for the entire organisation to manage

Dashboards are flexible by nature. They can take most sources of information and transform that data into insights that can be used to get a better understanding of operational performance. Thus, dashboards can be highly personalised, delivering the right information to the right person at the right time. For example, a Vice President might be interested in KPI’s that affect monthly results, such as cost reductions or risk management. A plant manager focuses on daily metrics such as production, quality, or costs.

AI & BI Based Analytical Dashboard

Manage all your warehouses, rooms, rows, shelves, bins, and more with just one software . Link warehouses to accounts and leverage a multitude of stock entry types to choose exactly which units fulfill orders. Reconcile stock, do batched operations, and get quick insights and reports on all your items across multiple warehouses
