"My Shop" is Part of a Complex Supply Chain

... and this can be very rewarding

Having a small, medium or large shop, we always think of it as “my shop”, probably not a surprise that this is what interests us the most. Bidding on a job and being awarded with a purchase order is great news but it is also associated with some concerns; did I correctly estimate the part cost? Can I deliver it on time and with the expected quality?

All these concerns (and of course there are more) grow exponentially at the OEM\buyer level where hundreds, sometime thousands of parts are getting to the assembly line. Besides trying efficiently to manage the supply chain, an OEM\buyer will probably “cross their fingers” while getting the product assembled.

Our shop is “our world” but in most cases our shop is not just that, it is also a part of a much bigger picture. Our shop is a component of a complex supply chain with multiple tiers, different manufacturing “cultures” and often we collaborate with outsourced facilities in a different continents. As a supply chain member, we need to focus on quality, delivery, and efficiencies (cost and competitiveness) to continue being awarded with more projects.

The great news for the suppliers, is that “outsourcing” for the manufacturing market is growing every year.  New OEMs and Buyers are getting into the market. The traditional OEMs like automotive, aerospace, oil & gas, and medical are growing with new models and with new products. Just think about the traditional car made of 40,000 parts, where the autonomous car is expected to reach almost double of this number. The B-737 airplane is made of 367,000 parts where the B-787 airplane is made of 2.3 million parts.  

With all this great news, suppliers need to adjust to an aggressive and competitive industry with growing requirements for smaller, smarter and cheaper parts, as well as being able to address handling new materials. The list for “ready” suppliers is long but the market is highly promising and will award those poised for growth!

Thank you,
