Live Data, Paperless ERP

MAP - Live data, paperless ERP logo, screens showing dataLive and accurate data is a paramount requirement in the manufacturing environment. We have installed Key Process Indicators throughout the facility to display vital statistics to both our workforce and our visitors. This data is generated straight from our ERP system, MAP, and includes information such as sales figures, quality and on-time delivery ratings and capacity load by department. We also display the entire production schedule on the shop floor, which allows every employee to review and assess the performance of and demands on our organization.

We recently introduced paperless access to MAP for our production staff via the use of iPads. Sixteen S&H machinists are utilizing iPads to record job time, report discrepancies, request tools, view work order instructions, and more. The ultimate goal is to issue an iPad to every employee at S&H and go completely paperless on the shop floor. Want to know more? Contact us.

Power Flush Cleaning Cabinet clears debris

S&H Machine Power Flush cabinetForeign Objects and Debris are a primary concern to our customers. We understand the risks and we invested in a solution: We installed a new Power Flush cleaning cabinet that enables us to blast pressurized water-based cleaners through the intersecting bores and passageways of our parts.

This flushes out the foreign objects and debris so that when the final product is delivered to our customer it is free from contamination and ready for assembly. Our customers love it, and so will you.
