Architectural Window is a leading manufacturer and contractor of high performance aluminium windows primarily used in educational and high rise residential buildings.

Challenges

Architectural Window was experiencing a bottleneck with getting shop drawings translated into factory paperwork necessary for production, due to the complex and customised nature of their orders.

The process relied on in-house database process which was difficult to use, required a large knowledge base and was error prone. The process would not adapt and allow for company growth.

Solution

Architectural Window implemented Soft Tech’s Manufacturing Solution to overcome the challenges they were facing. The software has allowed information from shop drawings to generate purchase orders and production engineering information, including cut lists and processing information.
