As an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) in any industry, outsourcing specialized aspects of any manufacturing or production aspect of a device is a cost-effective and logical option to consider.
However, the company selected for any type of specialized service has to add value to the product or the process in order for it to be a viable consideration. In the case of cable assembly manufacturers, there are several ways they can add both value and cost-savings for an OEM.
Real-World Experience and Solutions
With experienced cable assembly manufacturers, part of the value they bring to the table is their experience in working with similar types of projects and challenges in the past. Drawing on this experience and the ability to develop past successful solutions can shorten the design process and save money.
Increasing Installation Speed While Decreasing Human Error
By using cable assembly manufacturers instead of trying to complete the assembly in-house, the wiring arrives ready to install. This prevents additional time for in-house wiring individual cables and wires and also decreases the risk of human error during the process.
Addressing Specific Challenges
Every OEM will have specific requirements for their product or device. Some may need multiple types of cables bundled together while others may have difficulties in wiring configuration in tight spaces. Companies offering cable assembly can work with the issues of the particular component or device and develop the ideal wiring harness and cable assembly.
Reducing Production Costs
When using any type of niche service, the cost of production is going to be lower outsourced than in-house. This is a simple math issue with the outsourced company already having the equipment, raw material suppliers and technical expertise in place.
Not only are these factors addressed, but the company already has systems in place that may allow for automation of the manufacturing process. This allows for higher production rates, which ultimately results in a lower cost per unit of production.
