Contract information is maintained and controlled for each part number. Every order is entered into the IST system and moved through production stages via computer scheduling. Orders are identified with bar code tickets, employee’s process per schedules viewable at each production station.
Employees sign off each process step on-line, and create new process tickets for subsequent operations at each process stage. Management observes product movement on-line, and on monitors in-plant.
Process control data-logging occurs on all primary equipment. Temperature, atmosphere control, process time, operator sign-offs and quench temperature data are stored and easily recalled for every production lot.
Order completion acknowledgements are emailed to customers and ASN/EDI information is delivered to designated recipients automatically when orders are shipped or made available for pick-up.
