If you could build more machines faster and better, could you sell them?
Growth – Still the fastest way to profitability
Why not concentrate on what you do best?
An increasing number of OEMs choose strategic outsourcing as part of their overall production and supply chain strategy. This allows them to delegate non-core activities to organisations that specialise in those activities, giving them time to focus on their core competencies such as:
Research and development
Sales and marketing
What are the typical barriers to growth?
Number of skilled workers available
Ageing workforce and loss of key tacit knowledge
Lack of space available to build additional machines
Production lead times
Lean exercises have eliminated waste yet you are still struggling to build machines quicker
How can outsourcing benefit your business?
These are many and varied but some of the key drivers are:
Optimise costs associated with production and related overheads
Reduction in total manufacturing costs
Reduces the financial risk and exposure, especially in markets where demand can change quickly
Elimination of unnecessary stock and reduction of Work In Progress (WIP)
Improves cash flow
Improved manufacturing lead times
Flexible and responsive production to the typical ‘peaks and troughs’ of demand
Provides an extension to your own engineering, supply chain and production support capabilities
Reduces the need for costly sub-contract labour at busy times
Reduces the likelihood of redundancies during quiet times
Time to market & Scalability
The faster the machine development, production readiness and commercialisation, the faster that revenue stream can be delivered.
Access to highly skilled and trained workforce
Creates a fixed cost of ownership
Provides you with price stability
