Many companies continue to develop a product design that leads to unnecessary costs, requires an inflexible supply chain and suffers from inefficient manufacturing processes.
Therefore, PP C&A’s engineering, operations and supply chain are integrated at the earliest possible stage to help optimise a machine design that is efficient to manufacture and has parts readily available to ensure quicker time to market.
Time to market is a critical factor for many machine builders. The faster the machine development, production readiness and commercialisation, the faster that revenue stream can be accessed by the builder as part of the revenue growth strategy. Generating revenues sooner and getting your technology adopted, creates real competitive advantage.
For instance, once the target market has accepted that technology/solution – the more difficult it is for a competitor/alternative technology to enter that market space.
Gaining additional technical and manufacturing knowledge and skills, whilst ensuring awareness of the many technology platform options available through knowledge sharing are unique benefits to PP C&A’s outsourcing approach.
Having a strategic outsourcing partner will, without any doubt, accelerate the time to market challenge and deliver scalability from prototype stage through to production volumes.
