Innovation leads to excellence
A quality control training app developed by Garden State Precast took first place in the National Precast Concrete Association’s 2021 Best Practices competition. The Farmingdale, N.J., company received its award Thursday, May 20, during the NPCA’s The Precast Show in New Orleans, La.
Garden State Precast worked with Titan developers to create the custom app for quality control technician use. The previous system created paper forms and required manual data entry. The app replaced the old system with completed form scanning and filing for all pre- and post-pour inspection checklists. Cumulatively, the old process consumed up to three hours a day. The same process today takes a maximum of 30 minutes.
“This past year, one of our main focuses has been training with a new mobile app that we believe could be the new industry standard for the quality control departments of plants across the entire industry,” read the company’s Best Practices entry.
Garden State Precast produces precast concrete box culverts, retaining walls, storm and sanitary products, and much more!
Based in Carmel, Ind., NPCA has represented manufacturers of industrial plant-produced precast concrete products and the suppliers of products and services for the industry since 1965, providing members with the programs and information required to operate a successful precast plant. NPCA operates the industry’s largest and most comprehensive plant certification program, which is accredited by the American National Standards Institute.
