FabTrol Systems to exhibit and present at 2013 NASCC steel event
FabTrol Systems, a global provider of steel fabrication management solutions, is an exhibitor, presenter and event sponsor during this year’s North American Steel Construction Conference (NASCC) in St. Louis, Missouri, April 17 – 19.
For steel fabricators, detailers and other steel sector professionals, the FabTrol Systems’ exhibit (Booth No. 1119) will be a busy hub of educational and entertaining events, including:
- The introduction of the FabTrol Pro Production module, which allows fabricators to automate and streamline the production planning and tracking process with easy setup of automated—and sophisticated—routing rules customized to each company’s shop; flexible batching and batch issuing functions that easily coordinate with the project schedule; automatic assembly routing based on main member type and/or assembly type; the ability to mark tasks complete in real time, with immediate production status updating; and an at-a-glance view of work left to do based on user-selected criteria (e.g., batch, project/sequence, etc.). As with all FabTrol Pro modules, the Production module is fully integrated with other areas in the software, ensuring that real-time data updates are pushed automatically from production to other relevant modules.
- A series of presentations covering FabTrol Pro’s seamlessly integrated capabilities, including material management, drawing and RFI management, MTRs and automated material traceability, and production control. FabTrol Pro is the company’s state-of-the art fabrication management solution, designed with the most modern development tools available. Attendees will also get a preview of soon-to-be released project management tools in FabTrol Pro, including a cloud-based reminder/task management tool designed to streamline project communications and help keep schedules on track; and a scheduling tool which displays selected project timelines graphically in real time as schedules are adjusted. Projects for inclusion can be easily added and dropped, and the display, again, updates in real time.
- A presentation on FabTrol Shop, the company’s fully integrated fabrication management solution for small shops. Built with the same state-of-the-art tools as FabTrol Pro, FabTrol Shop upgrades seamlessly to FabTrol Pro.
- A series of presentations by FabTrol Systems’ integration partners demonstrating the benefits of integrating their hardware and software solutions with FabTrol software. Partner companies presenting include Tekla, Design Data, Hypertherm, Radley Corporation, ATek Automation and Voortman.
Presentation attendees and other exhibit visitors--both current and prospective customers--will also have an opportunity to take advantage of a number of show specials, as well as participate in social media contests.

Conference attendees are also invited to attend “Increase capacity, shorten schedules and improve quality,” a fabrication management workshop, Thursday, April 18 at 4:15. During the workshop, Brian Williams, FabTrol System’s product manager, will provide attendees with a first-hand look at how fabricators can increase capacity, shorten schedules and improve quality by using FabTrol Pro to manage production. He will also demonstrate how the software can help fabricators solve real-world, shop-floor challenges with the solution’s fully integrated—and highly automated—production planning (batching), routing, and tracking capabilities, including automated assembly routing and integration with barcode tracking.
