Let’s face it, we all have too much to do with too little time. With the time we have available, most is spent in meetings or troubleshooting issues. Why does it help to understand sheet metal fabrication costs? We have found that some of the meetings and issues can be avoided once we understand the drivers behind sheet metal fabrication costs. Lot charges can be avoided if order quantities vary slightly. Non-recurring engineering (NRE) charges can be minimized with small deviations from the drawing. Lead times can be shortened once material grades are taken into consideration. The more we know about fabrication costs, the more we can provide lower cost designs.
This white paper strives to help customers improve their competitiveness by solving long established supply chain redundancies to uncover deep savings and significant lead time reductions.
