New Generation Computing Inc (NGC Software) announced that STEPS Inc., a non-profit organization that employs individuals with disabilities to manufacture uniforms and military apparel, has upgraded to the latest version of NGC’s Shop Floor Control software.

STEPS’ services assist individuals with disabilities to become fully integrated, tax-paying members of their local communities. An NGC customer for over 14 years, STEPS has managed its Victoria, Virginia manufacturing facility with NGC’s Shop Floor Control. The latest version allows STEPS to improve operational efficiency and increase production output through enhanced reporting capabilities, improved resource planning and elimination of bottlenecks—all on one system.
 
The new features of NGC’s Shop Floor Control include the following:
 
Improved production with fast, easy reporting. NGC Shop Floor Control’s daily reporting gives STEPS clear visibility and insight into the productivity of its factory, allowing the company to control costs more effectively.
 
Increased operational efficiency. The new NGC software will allow STEPS to easily analyze labor utilization on a daily basis, enabling STEPS to control costs and provide visibility and insight into productivity of its factories.
 
Assured Quality Control. STEPS’ reputation for producing high quality garments is supported through NGC’s Shop Floor Control quality control features. NGC’s software collects data in real-time and provides STEPS with highly detailed quality reports.
 
“STEPS provides extremely beneficial services to members of its community and to its customers,” said Mark Burstein, president of sales, marketing and R&D, NGC Software. “NGC produces the most complete and widely installed shop floor control system available in the industry, and we're pleased to continue our long-term relationship with STEPS to help the organization continue its work.”
