Accurate Scheduling for Accurate Control
A leading motor control and power distribution solution, Accurate Control Company provides electrical motor control, automation and power distribution equipment for the oil and gas, petrochemical, renewable energy, water treatment, pharmaceutical and manufacturing industries. Founded in 1989, the firm serves leading oil and gas producers not only at its headquarters in Houston, Texas but also around the globe.
When looking to acquire an integrated ERP system, Accurate Control wanted the ability to efficiently schedule work through the shop floor. Before choosing Global Shop Solutions, scheduling was conducted on manual spreadsheets which were unable to showcase real-time accurate schedules to the entire company. Global Shop Solutions’ Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) module has greatly simplified this process. According to Operation Manager Christine Barfield, “what used to take four hours can now be done in minutes. And now that we have accurate data, we can easily update labor sequences if we need to move a job out.”
APS isn’t the only aspect of Global Shop Solutions that Accurate Control has taken advantage of. A custom Global Application Builder (GAB) program was created that automatically populates vendor costs, allows for linking of pricing agreements and calculates costs for products that require multiplier-based pricing. “With materials we already have pricing for, Global Shop Solutions automatically populates the price into the cost field and feeds it right into the router,” says Barfield.
