Our extensive and sophisticated enterprise resource planning (ERP) system lives in the cloud, giving us a platform that's typically only found at Fortune 500 companies. With terminals at every single work center on the floor and bar codes on every piece of material that enters and exits Hiawatha Rubber, all project-tracking and quality data is collected in real-time and stored in our cloud network.
Here's how it works: Let's say you were to receive a defective product. We can readily determine the component's make-up, when and where the materials came from and who worked on each step of the project order. This significantly increases a product’s traceability from beginning to end, improves the accuracy of production to precise specs and reduces cost as a result of improved efficiency.
