Sales growth potential is very rarely a constraint and all manufacturing companies strive to increase sales to increase revenues and profit growth. Increased sales means increased production accordingly. But maximum production capacity will occur and inevitably that means longer lead times. The potential risks include increasing customer dissatisfaction and losing out on orders.
A reduction of associated customer lead times is often the difference between an order being won or an order being lost. Improving those lead times will mean winning more orders.
Your customers are no different than any others in their desire for quicker delivery and an outsourcing strategy will assist greatly.
It is important to ask yourself, which activities do you currently undertake that generate profit and which activities do you currently undertake that drain profit?
By asking these questions, you will have a clearer understanding on what processes to outsource.
By picking an outsourcing partner and investing in what you do best, you will be delegating non-core processes such as part or full machine build and benefiting from their ability to supply at a higher level. This will reduce your production build times and ultimately improve the sales lead time to your customer.
