Weekly & Daily Overview • Work orders are received by Production for primary review of any special gas or calibration requirements and Production Manager sign off. • Work orders are then routed to Operations and Purchasing • Work order model numbers and quantities verified • SPECIALS and EXPEDITES, special parts / component requirements addressed • Work order binning process takes place where all components and parts associated with each specific work order and meter are pulled together for production process • Upon binning completion work orders are routed to their first phase in production
PRODUCTION PROCESS • The binned orders are routed to temperature calibration. • From that process they are moved to pre-assembly where they are prepared for flow calibration. • Once flow calibration is completed they are routed to final assembly and programming. • When that phase is completed and verified the meters are routed to QA for final check. • When QA has completed this process the meters are released to shipping with their required documents and if included all associated hardware.
METERS READY TO SHIP • WHEN SIGNED OFF BY QA, ORDERS ARE RELEASED TO SHIPPING.
THE FINAL TOUCH:SHIPPING • Final contents check list verification • Proper container and packing material selected • Check work order data base for shipping address and method • Ready for carrier pick up
