Due to the many risks and costs associated with the rapid expansion to "large-scale commercialization," the company is seeking small-volume solution providers to help avoid and solve the ramp-up problem before mass production. So how to achieve efficient low volume manufacturing? Let's take a look together next.
The following is a list of contents:
Connect the digital thread
Complete concurrent design
Connect different teams with domain expertise
Use cutting-edge technology
From research to the realization of low volume manufacturing, every stage of the product life cycle must be correct. However, if there is no seamless data flow, all this is impossible.
The low volume manufacturing digital thread does just that, taking data from design to manufacturing, all the way to the supply chain. Providing the right data to all stakeholders in the product lifecycle can achieve agility, which is a key element in creating life-changing products.
It is easy to consider the process of low-volume manufacturing products to market as a continuous step from idea to final delivery, but it will slow down the entire operation. The importance of speed cannot be overstated. If you want to stay ahead of the competition, thinking ahead is essential to quickly deliver ideas to impatient consumers. A successful low-volume manufacturing product development process integrates all parallel disciplines because they influence each other. For example, stakeholders in the design must interact with stakeholders in the supply chain to ensure that the specified parts can be reliably obtained at the right price and at the right time.
Just as connecting processes and data are important, what inspires the magic is connecting people. Bringing together different teams can introduce new perspectives, problems, and solutions. By focusing on contributors with domain expertise, you can take advantage of the latest low-volume manufacturing technology.
The digital revolution has provided us with new technologies—additive manufacturing, augmented reality, and digital twins, to name a few. Using these tools as digital building blocks in economically appropriate places can make a big difference throughout the low-volume manufacturing design process and the product life cycle.
Low volume manufacturing requires true engineering rigor to ensure that emerging technologies play a role in the design, prototyping, small-batch manufacturing, and mass production stages. With recent advancements, the work done through additive manufacturing can be mass-produced.
