Today’s competitive landscape requires focus on your true core competency, the elements of your value proposition that are most closely linked to your success. Outsourcing to a qualified and responsive OEM provider frees up your resources so that they can be allocated to that which differentiates you from your competition and strengthens your competitive advantage. Tungwille has developed processes that methodically and systematically manage the transition from internal manufacturing to an outsourcing model in a controlled environment, minimizing the drain on your administrative and engineering resources while eliminating risk. Whether you’re outsourcing a portion of your manufacturing process or the entire product, Tungwille has extensive experience assisting a wide range of companies, from small businesses to Fortune 500 organizations.
Scaling production to support an accelerating revenue stream can elicit feelings of excitement and fear at the same time. Whether you’re building product in-house and have reached the limits of your capacity or you’ve outsourced and are exposed to the limitations of one supplier, developing another source to alleviate potential production constraints during times of rapid growth requires a disciplined and thoughtful response. Having extensive experience scaling new projects through expedited demand cycles, we’ve established a professional program launch processes that accelerate the product through first article validation and into volume production quickly and efficiently.
Contemplating the re-sourcing of product from an incumbent OEM provider to another manufacturer carries with it a certain element of risk. But when delivery, quality, or cost performance has reached the point where it becomes an impediment to your continued success and growth, moving production becomes a necessity. Tungwille recognizes that there are unique challenges when moving away from an incumbent supplier, including the potential for institutional manufacturing knowledge possessed by the supplier that might not exist in your documentation, alternate sourcing of components that may not comply with your approved vendor list, and the need to move tooling or fixtures. Perhaps most concerning is the distinct possibility that the supplier may reassign resources once the decision is made, jeopardizing your existing product flow. We understand the risk and work closely with our customers to develop and implement a re-sourcing strategy that accelerates the transition process and considers contingencies should any of these potential scenarios become reality.
While every product must comply with the appropriate specifications and standards, certain industries are subject to particularly stringent quality requirements or regulations. This is especially true when non-conformance can result in catastrophic failure, such as in the medical, military. Tungwille’ ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System addresses the specific requirements mandated by each market.
If your requirements can be accurately defined as low-to-mid volume, higher mix (many unique assembly part numbers), and higher complexity, then you face multiple challenges that require a comprehensive solution across manufacturing, engineering, supply chain, and administrative functions. Tungwille’ infrastructure, best described as the combination of our systems, software, processes, and people, has been specifically designed to address every aspect of those challenges. Expertise gained from participating in best practices implemented across multiple industries is leveraged to your advantage. Our vertical integration business model – designed to accommodate the potentially disruptive environment inherent in this market segment, coupled with our ability to rapidly launch projects, shift direction, and scale in both directions – brings products to market quicker without sacrificing performance.
Many of our customers never considered low-cost sourcing for their lower volume, higher complexity products, and with good reason. Much of the production sourced in domestic is for higher volume, lower mix, and lower complexity projects. Tungwille has shifted the paradigm by creating a business model that combining the internet with entity manufacturing rather than just volume. Our production facility in Shenzhen is structured for repeatable manufacturing of high labor content assemblies, sometimes in volumes as low as 15 or 20 units per month. Using a hybrid approach, we’ll craft a manufacturing strategy that leverages the production of highly complex, labor intensive assemblies within the lower production costs of China. Where needed, we’ll integrate into larger, higher complexity boxes and frames in our domestic facility, effectively reducing costs without sacrificing quality and reliability.
While our customers come from diverse industries, they all share a common thread: the need to execute an outsourcing strategy that eliminates risk and enhances their ability to service their customers in a low-to-mid volume, high mix, and high complexity environment. By default, these markets present a unique set of challenges that require a completely different approach. Tungwille' business model is specifically designed with those challenges in mind.
