China manufacturing sourcing

Improving Service by Growing Our China Office!

Our China Manufacturing Sourcing Team is Growing! MES is happy to announce that we continue to grow and enlarge both our operations and our personnel worldwide!

Outsourced Manufacturing Considerations

This is the most metric-intensive portion of the supply chain process—one where we continuously measure quality levels, production output and productivity. Outsourced Manufacturing Considerations Manufacturers are increasingly relying on outsourced manufacturing as they struggle to keep manufacturing costs in check, shorten product cycles and stay competitive in their market. Outsourced manufacturing, done well, can help manufacturers save money on everything from facility costs, tooling, equipment purchases and maintenance, as well as staffing. Outsourced manufacturing can also allow for the expansion of core competencies and help protect companies from supply interruptions. As compelling as the savings are, sacrificing quality or lead times can end up costing manufacturers more money in the long term. You must ensure that the outsourced manufacturing vendor has the technical capabilities, capacity, facilities, and systems to provide the products according to your specifications and will provide the service you expect. You should assess the willingness and capability […]

Contract Manufacturing Resources

The first step of the supply chain management process is to procure a quality source for manufacturing. The MES goal is simple: Provide the cost benefits of global contract manufacturing without the risks to our customers. Global Contract Manufacturing is a procurement strategy in which a company sources materials from countries with lower labor and production costs in order to cut operating expenses. Global contract manufacturing is not limited to just high labor content products anymore. Increasingly, companies are looking for Low Cost Country Sourcing suppliers to source sophisticated products requiring high capital (such as die casting machines, CNC machines or expensive casting lines, assembly lines, painting, powder coating and E-coating). Identifying qualified manufacturers who will fill manufacturing orders on time and on budget with low percentages of quality rejects is a critical component of the supply chain management process. While many companies look globally for ways to save money on production costs, it […]

MES Improves Lead Times, Overcomes Challenges with Hands-on Supply Chain Management

MES Improves Lead Times, Overcomes Challenges with Hands-on Supply Chain Management COLUMBUS, Ohio, June 20, 2013– via PR Newswire— Dealing with suppliers in India and China, MES is often asked how it overcomes communication gaps and development challenges (lead times, PPAP quality submissions, etc.). After developing with over 40 suppliers over last 10 years, following are the key issues. While these may seem very logical, in the world dealing with suppliers which are 15,000 miles away, all issues are exacerbated: 1.  Finding Qualified Suppliers: It’s very easy to find suppliers who say “they do export work”. It’s also easy to find suppliers who have “capacity”. It’s almost given that all suppliers have “ISO / TS Certification”. But what’s unique in both Indian and Chinese Culture is the deference to the customers. Customers have to train and develop relationships with suppliers to “extract” the correct information – this is not because […]
