We make five claims about how we can manage the supply chain, implement point of use systems, and bring a $700m sales organization into play for your OEM requirements.
The iPower-VMI solution currently successfully manages 25,000 bins at point of use, delivering over 15 million components into mission critical OEM assemblies and sub-assemblies. You can read more about iPower VMI.
If components or assemblies are too expensive to handle through traditional VMI programs, iPower-KanBan is configured to meet contractual, planning and delivery needs in the OEM environment. Read more about iPower Kanban.
When VMI or KanBan are not appropriate, the iPower-Buyer strategy places professional buyer-planners to work onsite to plan and purchase items through Oracle, SAP and other planning systems. Read more about iPower Buyer
OEM's Seek Partners For More Than Parts
Manufacturers look to suppliers for more than just the product on the shelf. Today, the OEM needs a partner that considers the product, but also time, quality, reliability, safety, innovation, profitability, reduced liability, and much more. That may seem to be a lot to expect from someone providing a product needed for an OEM’s production, but that’s where we are today in the supply chain world. The technology and training are crucial. And when it became necessary, even the laws that regulate the industry were changed.
