September 13, 2012 ― Computer Associates (CAI) announced today its new manufacturing module as part of its Navision for Refiners software. This new module provides users with a 100 percent accurate metals inventory control solution, 100 percent of the time. With Navision you can get a real-time picture of your metals position and systematically categorize and quantify your inventory based on location, customer account, asset class and metal type for accurate "as of" reporting.

Bill Tierney, manager of CAI’s Microsoft Dynamics Group said, “No matter what you manufacture—flat stock, shots, targets, chemicals or special custom precious metal alloys, Navision for Refiners’ integrated manufacturing tools can streamline and automate your operations while providing greater visibility into order entry, production, inventory control and delivery. With Navision, you can reduce production costs, minimize inventory and respond quickly to customer inquiries with reliable information and improved accuracy.”

The integrated Manufacturing Module helps you incorporate work-in-process (WIP) refining inventory into your finished goods manufacturing process, allocate customer metal to customer finished goods orders, track precious metal and scrap through the production cycle, include precious metal WIP inventory into your daily metal hedging calculation and generate daily market valuation reports for your precious metal products.
