TCS augments Tata Steel’s processes to boost business value and customer engagement.
We leveraged their existing development work where applicable in reporting factory and legacy systems integration. We streamlined the process design, project management and business consultancy functions to allow appropriate levels of evolution, revolution, and harmonization for Tata Steel to manage the required change.
Our teams automated Hot metal till coil production creating visibility of cost of production and profitability. We added a SAP module to integrate route and product feasibility during sales order creation. We also enabled multi-drop and multi-leg shipments to facilitate a robust dispatch process.
Additionally, we changed Tata Steel’s order fulfillment strategy from ‘make to order’ to one of ‘make to stock’ where appropriate.
