Quad Infotech starts implementation of its [QMOS] MES system in Gerdau Ameristeel’s Sayreville’s plant


Quad Infotech has started the implementation of its [QMOS] MES system at Gerdau Ameristeel’s Sayreville’s plant.

[QMOS] will allow Sayreville to seamlessly coordinate its steel making and rolling operations from the Scrap Yard all the way to bundling and shipping operations.

The advanced Spec Management and QC functions in [QMOS] will provide the Sayreville plant with great quality control capabilities through each step of the operation.

By incorporating the advanced scheduling and material assignment functions in QMOS, Sayreville will improve coordination among its production units in the melt shop and the rolling mill allowing it to provide better production and delivery schedules to customers.

Through its advanced shop management modules such as the roll shop, guide shop, stand building and more, the Sayreville’s setup shops will take advantage of many functions such as inventory and location management, shop planning, account summary and much more.

The advanced data analysis tools in QMOS as well as its standard and custom production and KPI reports provide the Sayreville plant with great opportunities for targeted process analysis and performance evaluation.
