Application: Chassis Components
Problem: Over decades of sourcing stampings, a customer found they had 12 metal stamping suppliers. Managing 12 supplier contacts, issuing purchase orders to 12 companies, and tracking incoming shipments from 12 supply sources became a management challenge.
The MWI Solution:
- Met with the customer to review product designs
- Proposed a consolidation of almost all their stamping requirements, both vendors and parts
- Transferred dies, spare tooling, raw materials, and data files from existing vendors
The customer went from 12 metal stamping vendors to 2, with a smooth transition of vendors and product offerings, resulting in an uninterrupted production flow for the customer.
