The Benefits of Digital Manufacturing Software
Early identification of potential manufacturability issues will prevent costly and time-consuming ECOs as you are trying to release your hot new products to market.
Conduct fact-based negotiations with suppliers to ensure that each part is purchased at a competitive price and the supplier is not losing money.
Allow buyers to match the manufacturing requirements of their parts to the supplier’s capabilities. This results in better pricing for the buyer and easier manufacturing for the supplier.
Focused negotiation on parts that have cost saving opportunities avoids time wasted negotiating a lower price for a part that is already fairly priced.
Compare costs across targeted regions and assess the cost impact of alternate routings in the event the supply chain is disrupted.
By starting with the facts, you can identify the right suppliers fast and accelerate negotiations. And then streamline manufacturing by identifying manufacturability issues they face up front.
