How does MHS enhance information

exhange in the project supply chain?

Materials represent the largest expense in capital projects, with substantial investment projects having even hundreds of material suppliers. Purchase order and delivery information is often transferred manually by emails, Excel spreadsheets and phone calls by individuals within the project network.

The Material Handling System (MHS) has been developed to resolve the key issues in material deliveries to remote project sites, by acting as a common material delivery data-base. MHS is modern tool for managing material deliveries in capital projects. The software has been developed for project managers, project engineers, material suppliers, forwarders and project warehouse managers. 

The Material Handling System has been in use in international capital projects since 2003. The features of the software have been developed with the latest technologies based on collaboration with leading Finnish heavy industry companies.

What our customers and partners have to say

 Foster Wheeler Energy supplies power plant and industrial boilers all over the world. The company has more than 600 suppliers worldwide.

The challenge for the company was the timely coordination of goods delivery from hundreds of different suppliers to sites all over the world. The delivery communication was done by fax, phone or e-mail. The stock inventory at different sites was handled manually.

The solution was for Foster Wheeler Energy to implement the use of the Material Handling System (former RPM Manager system) in 2004. The cloud-based software is a communication platform for the supplier and the customer. The software covers communication exchange from the order’s reception till the delivery and instillation at the site.

The benefits are real-time management of the delivery of the goods, quality delivery documents that meet customer standards and ability for both parties to see and be part of the communication and delivery process.
