General Magnaplate has recently implemented a new enterprise resource planning (ERP) system created specifically for the surface enhancement industry. This system will both improve lead times and allow us to track orders more efficiently throughout the production process.
The new ERP system combines a quality management system (QMS) and integrated manufacturing execution system (MES). As it tracks orders, the ERP can capture any kind of production data as well as qualify personnel, equipment and outside vendors in real-time. General Magnaplate associates will have easier access to more detailed and nuanced information for complex processes, and the real-time information gleaned by the ERP will allow us to give customers precise updates on the status of their orders.
