For our customer to be successful, we need to consistently produce the same product ensuring quality and controlling price. The only way to do this is through written procedures called “process planning.” This is not only limited to parts we manufacture, but applies to all aspects of our business.Kalman Manufacturing utilizes the software database Vista by Epicor. With this tool, we are able to control and repeat all the processes necessary to be successful. From a simple or complex component to a single or multi-piece mechanical assembly, Vista creates the documented steps needed to achieve a make-to-order manufacturing process. These processes are managed and updated as your part or assembly transitions from prototype to production, allowing the process to mature as your part does.
As manufacturing processes occur, data collection is in place to track the progress of current orders, allowing our customers to get a daily update on progress of there parts. This also allows the planning department to see the shop load availability for potentially new orders and to give accurate lead times.
