In today’s world, having one system that manages everything is becoming more and more popular. There are companies that offer complete packages that include ERP and CAD/CAM software, but are they really sufficient to suit the ever demanding industry? This is where MIE Solutions partnership with Metamation comes into its own. With our partnership, you get two individual companies who are experts in their fields, which combine their market leading solutions to muster a complete manufacturing package.

– The ERP. MIE Solutions are the suppliers of their market leading ERP/MRP system, MIETrak Pro. MIETrak Pro is designed to manage the entire workflow process from the initial enquiry all the way through to shipping and invoicing. Having originally been developed in partnership with Amada America, the software’s core is manufacturing driven which set’s itself apart with its attention to detail when quoting and manufacturing items from a sheet metal, engineering and fabrication sector.

The MIETrak Pro system is used on a global scale with over 1300 users in the UK, and over 10,000 worldwide. MIE have multiple offices in the USA, and are also situated in Mexico, UK, South Africa and New Zealand. The features that set MIE Solutions from their competitors are that it is an industry specific solution along with being a complete, non-modular, ERP solution. The system is designed to cater to company at both end of the spectrum, whether it be a single user system, or a multi-site or multi-national corporate organisation.

-The CAD/CAM. Metamation are market leaders with their innovative CAD/CAM software. They offer the complete Computer Aided Design and Computer Aided Manufacture with configurable modules that offer both 2D and 3D design with import along with offline bending, punch programs, profile cutting and dynamic nesting for a wide range of machines and machine manufactures. Metamation have been making CAD CAM Software for 20 years and have multiple locations throughout the globe.

Metamation are easily distinguished from their competition as they are amongst a very small number of CAD/CAM suppliers who have developed and own all of their products. They deal directly with machine manufacturers in an OEM capacity along with their own direct customer portfolio, which means they already have links to 1000’s of machine models.

– Where they meet. So we have two market leaders in their respective fields, now how do they actually integrate and what are the benefits? From the outset, the two systems combine at the quoting stage. Metamation’s Enterprise engine tools the parts automatically to work out information such as machine cycle times. This information is then transferred over to MIETrak’s quoting module which uses the information to work out costing’s for quoting purposes using machine CAM information, using this method means your costing’s and predicted schedule times are more precise as more machine factors are taken into account. Job cards that are then produced from within the MIETrak Pro system are passed back over to Enterprise that then enables the dynamic nesting of jobs. Dynamic nesting enables users to go to the n’th degree when deciding on the complexity of the nests they wish to create. The two systems combined offer the ultimate solution from the very design of products through to the shipping and invoicing.
