[Documents] Manufacturing Supply Chain Competitive Readiness Questionnaire

Note: Our Manufacturing Supply Chain Competitive Readiness Document available on this page is different from our OEM Audit of EMS Provider Document.

All activity in the manufacturing supply chain takes place in human-to-human, human-to-system, and/or system-to-system environments and inviting opportunity for error with every action. This 17-page Document helps OEM executives and EMS/ODM providers identify and reduce manufacturing supply chain bottlnecks while improving workflow accuracy, timeliness, and productivity execution. Some areas this Document helps companies with manufacturing supply chains includes focus on risk buys and double ordering, reducing lead times, IDL and S,G&A costs, ERP pricing, materials inventory, manufacturing execution systems, engineering change orders, and more. We explain some ways companies and suppliers and vendors can release working capital and create a more efficient and competitive supply chain by using this Document in this article here.

For decision makers seeking manufacturing cost models for outsourcing programs to EMS and ODM solution providers and want more informed decision-making to better determine what your landed costs should be, wanting to identify internal EMS and ODM factory costs (by factory, by geography, by production line and by program) to identify hidden provider profits and ways to lower annual spend and positioning during the contract negotiations phase, read more about our manufacturing cost models here.
