Concurrent with Process Development and Process Integration is the utilization of internal systems - Fourth Shift (ERP) and JobBoss (Router Control and Job Costing). Both systems are utilized to control the manufacturing processes through development and integration.
Each process connected with materials, organization, flow of information between the external/internal customers, and execution of steps toward product realization is systemized in our manufacturing operations. Specific sequencing of manufacturing processes, quality inspection, and control points are captured and controlled by Fourth Shift and JobBoss.
Proper System Integration enhances quality, manages costs, facilitates continuous improvement, and ensures the efficiency of the processes and documentation. Our systems control the reliability and consistency, controlling the following:
• Tooling and fixtures
• Process planning
• Production planning
• Software and Hardware
• Material Management, Storage and Control
• Kanban and Inventory Control
• Preventive Maintenance
• Quality Assurance Controls
