BP Fabrics and Fibers Revamps Cost Management System

15 December 2003
Atlanta, Georgia

3C Software has signed an agreement with BP Fabrics and Fibers (BP Fabrics) in Austell , Georgia , to implement the Impact:ECS Enterprise Cost System for its corporate and manufacturing locations. With the project, 3C Software will provide consulting, technical and industry expertise to help BP Fabrics develop an automated approach for standard costing and product information tracking for its five mills located in Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina.

BP Fabrics is moving away from its current mainframe systems and creating a new approach to total business control for the textile industry. As the standard costing solution, Impact:ECS will integrate vital production and financial information between commercial ERP and shop-floor systems to produce meaningful, accurate and timely cost information. The systems will serve as the product master responsible for recording bill of material and routing information for all BP Fabrics’ production processes. Using Impact:ECS as the information bridge allows cost managers throughout the organization to view, understand, analyze and forecast cost data consistently across production facilities.

3C Software consultants will work directly with production and cost managers from the textile producer to develop cost models based on current business practices. The plant rollout includes interface development for their SAP enterprise system and relevant production systems to ensure consistency across manufacturing locations. Once complete, important manufacturing cost data will be available to cost managers and business leaders for review and analysis on their PC desktops.
