FabTrol Field, a new addition to FabTrol Systemsâ€™ integrated steel fabrication management software, provides job site personnel with remote web-enabled access to real-time project data
Online PR News – 01-February-2011 – – With FabTrol Field, all authorized project participantsâ€”from the on-site project manager to the general contractor and erectorâ€”have fingertip access from any smartphone or desktop computer to the information they need to meet project schedules.
To access project data, authorized users simply login to a secure website to access the real-time FabTrol MRP project data they need, including:
- The status of any assembly on their job.
- Details and status of all loads bound for the job site.
- Graphical project status summaries.
Project participants who are authorized to do so can also mark a load as received from their remote login, which automatically updates the load status, including the received date, in FabTrol MRP.
To augment FabTrol Fieldsâ€™ access to real-time project data, FabTrol MRP Version 3.6 also includes ModelView, a free FabTrol Systemsâ€™ plugin developed jointly with Tekla Corp. ModelView allows fabricators to review current assembly information in the model, colorized by drawing, production and shipping statuses.
Current FabTrol MRP users will appreciate how the addition of FabTrol Field and ModelView to Version 3.6 improves coordination between all project participants, helping fabricators more effectively manage complex steel fabrication projects from material management and production activities through to job-site delivery. Fabricators considering the purchase of integrated steel fabrication management software can maximize a return on their investment knowing that the use of FabTrol MRP provides the timely, accurate information distribution needed to ensure project success.
