Configurator Windowmaker Manufacturing: A unique methodology for efficient Window/Door production.

Automating production

Advanced solutions for lean manufacturing

Once sales orders have been created, and batched - either manually or with scheduling - Windowmaker then processes them through production, with a range of optimisation options and the ability to automate your manufacturing.
