The Leading Edge Web-Based Warehousing Software Solution
SteelPartner™ is a closed loop coil tracking system designed to support material movement and processing within the steel industry. Northrop Grumman developed SteelPartner steel manufacturing software in 2001, with the help of the steel producers, outside processors and the AISI, an industry-wide eCommerce system. The concept behind SteelPartner is a transaction based system which is accessed through an internet portal.

Mills send data to SteelPartner via EDI transactions and SteelPartner loads this data into the SteelPartner website. Outside processor users logon to the website, enter their data as material is received, processed, and shipped. Behind the scenes, SteelPartner builds and maintains a secure order and inventory control system exclusive for that sponsor / outside processor relationship. Steelpartner then creates and sends the required EDI transactions to the sponsors as outside processor users enter data on the web.
