Thermal Engineering are typical of a growing number of engineering firms operating in the aerospace sector that are improving responsiveness to customer demand through the use of a SYSPRO ERP system.

The recently installed system will provide Royston-based Thermal Engineering with additional business benefits, including the elimination of manual processes in raising works orders and material provisioning, and reducing the amount of cash tied up in work in progress and material stock.

Thermal Engineering, which supplies manufactured components and assemblies for the aerospace industry, selected a fully integrated SYSPRO 6.0 manufacturing, distribution and financial system following a lengthy and vigorous evaluation of a number of leading enterprise resource planning packages. This included asking vendors to provide solutions to prototyping set scenarios that reflected the complexities of Thermal's business operation. 

Having recently gained a number of new customers in the aerospace industry, all of whom have strong requirements in scheduling, concession management, quality inspection and lot traceability, McGuffie Brunton was well placed to understand and meet Thermal's needs.

Commenting on SYSPRO's suitability for the aerospace industry, Paul Knight, Deputy Managing Director of Thermal Engineering, commented: "For the specific requirements of aerospace suppliers, SYSPRO does a lot more than the typical ERP/MRP system. It delivers the specific functionality that we need to control and manage our businesses, in order that we may improve our performance to customers and become better suppliers."

McGuffie Brunton has formed a Special Interest Group, specifically for manufacturers supplying into the aerospace sector, to look more closely at the industry's specific and ongoing requirements.
