UEC IT is a respected supplier of order-to-cash business applications for metals producers. Differentiating UEC IT from its competitors is the fact that UEC IT's Order Fulfillment System (OFS) was designed from the start by a steel company, by steel people, strictly for the steel industry. Because of this, OFS can effectively manage the complexities of the continuous manufacturing process inherent in steel production. Further differentiating UEC IT is our ability to respond quickly to our customers by expanding and further developing OFS to meet their ever changing needs.
With applications in flat and long rolling, steel coating, mini-mills, integrated mills, specialty and carbon producers; UEC IT can offer solutions not found in many of the larger multi-national ERP suppliers.
OFS can be easily retro-fitted to replace the order-to-cash portions of enterprise wide ERP systems.
UEC IT releases a new product offering called CFS, which stands for
Comprehensive Facility Status. CFS is an Executive Dashboard
application that allows executives to view key performance metrics and trends with a few mouse clicks.
UEC IT implements new OFS functionality at several customer sites including Test Result Upload with Automatic Result Matching,
Management and Tracking of Equipment used in Pouring of Ingots and MS SQL Server 2005 compatibility.
UEC IT integrates hand held scanning with OFS in the shipping department of Republic Engineered Products.
UEC IT completes a major upgrade to the OFS system at Universal Stainless and Alloy products. Some of the highlights include integration of hand held scanning with OFS, enhanced scheduling functionality, and expansion of OFS into the laboratory department of Universal.
UEC IT successfully implements OFS at Republic Engineered Products' six plants and corporate headquarters and enters into a long term OFS development agreement.
UEC IT enters into a partnership agreement with Radley Corporation for integration of hand held scanner bar code reading with UEC IT's OFS.
UEC IT is awarded a contract from Republic Engineered Products to implement OFS in all six of their production plants as well as their Fairlawn, OH headquarters.
In October 2004, the assets of UEC IT, a division of UEC, was purchased by IT Technology Corporation. Utilizing the same personnel and with the retention of all software licensing developed at U. S. Steel, UEC IT continues to provide proven software solutions for metals manufacturers, processors and service centers.
UEC IT successfully completes the OFS project for Anshan Steel, China's second largest producer. One of the highlights of this project was the use of the dual language feature within OFS (Chinese/English).
In December 2004 UEC IT moved to their new offices in Bridgeville, PA, just 20 minutes from the Pittsburgh International Airport and 20 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh.
The Information Technology group of USX Engineers and Consultants, Inc.(UEC IT), was formed to provide proven software solutions for metals manufacturers, processors, and service centers. UEC IT built upon a solid foundation of over a century of industry knowledge established by its parent, U. S. Steel and was positioned as a superior systems developer, implementer, and integrator of order-to-cash, supply chain planning, and eCommerce solutions.
The birth of USS Engineers and Consultants (UEC)
UEC was created in 1969 when US Steel began the worldwide marketing of their manufacturing technologies in minerals, mining, metals, chemicals, transportation, and computer technology.
