Some projects can involve thousands of individual steel parts that begin as large beams, plates and tubes received from steel suppliers. During preparation, large pieces are cut into smaller pieces, which are then welded to larger pieces during the assembly phase.

At the end of fabrication, large beams, small beams, support brackets and wide-span trusses must be shipped in proper order to a faraway jobsite that may or may not have sufficient storage space. An effective tracking system is therefore essential.

At Supermetal, we use a numbering system, barcode labels and a central database. These tools allow production managers to instantly identify and track any piece by scanning its barcode label with a laser gun. The progress and development of thousands of individual pieces can be monitored and controlled as they move through the production process -- from the receiving yard to their installation on the erected structure.
