Is Your Manufacturing Partner Practicing Good Inventory Management?

Posted by Matthew Turpin on Tue, Apr 14, 2015 @ 09:00 AM

It's become one of the "hot topics" of overseas manufacturing, although it's not one a lot of people like to talk about:  Counterfeits and other bootlegs.  It's a problem plaguing electronics across multiple industries,  Even the US military is having issues with it.

The longer and more globalized a supply chain is, the easier it is for counterfeit components to slip in.  Long supply chains are extremely difficult to oversee while, in the meantime, sometimes all it takes is a single corrupt factory manager making the swap.

Then you have no way of knowing what's in your product, and chances are, the end quality will be reduced as well.  That means higher post-sale support costs, and possibly even a full recall/reissue.

How Can A Manufacturing Assembly Speed Up Processes?

Posted by Adam Washburn on Fri, Jul 05, 2013 @ 07:00 AM

If yours is like most other electronics manufacturing companies, you are constantly looking for ways to speed up your processes so as to run more smoothly and efficiently. Unfortunately, when everything is done manually or your staff and machinery are limited, you can find yourself bogged down by labor costs and lost time. So what's the solution? Even the smallest electronics companies can keep up with their larger competitors when they contract with the right, American based manufacturing assembly business. By choosing to work with a contracted manufacturer, you'll be able to speed up all of your processes while still turning out high quality products that will keep your customers happy. Here's a closer look at how this can be accomplished.

Fast and Cost-Effective Design

There's no need to labor over plans for weeks on end, without coming up with a workable and affordable solution. By choosing to work with a contracted manufacturing assembly partner, you'll also have the ability to receive input during the design process. With highly qualified and experienced individuals on your team, you can come up with a way to create a sleek, user-friendly electronic device that will be constructed with as few parts as possible. Fewer parts means less money spent, overall, and every penny counts. But this doesn't mean that the quality of your products will be reduced. Your business partnership will simply help you to discover the most affordable design and build strategies so that you (and your customers) can get the most value for your dollar. The biggest advantage here is that this can all be accomplished much quicker than when you work on your own, meaning that you can stay ahead of the competition by delivering better products to your consumers quickly.
