Partnering with a Contract Manufacturer (CM) to save costs and to allow your organization to focus on your core competency of design and integration is a sound strategy. Deciding which CM has the capabilities, experience, and fits your culture is more difficult. Sypris works like a Tier 1 with similar toolsets (Six Sigma/Lean Manufacturing/CI), engineering driven procedures, and a risk mitigation mindset. This is a proven operational model for your success.
Further to a long-term partnership would be a collaborative CM that meshes well with your team and behaves as an Integrated Product Team (IPT). No single person can cover and understand all technical requirements of a product line. The Sypris IPT staffs a cross-functional team with certified Six Sigma Green Belts or Black Belts led by a seasoned Program Manager.
Our experienced IPT will employ effective tools such as Lean Launch events, Design for Manufacturability (DFM) analysis, Manufacturing Readiness Reviews (MRR), and Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA). Applying these best practices among others at Sypris helps you to reduce manufacturing time and to seek out cost savings. We are ready and willing to be your reliable manufacturing partner to build your high reliability or space-qualified products with strict quality and schedule requirements. Learn more…
