Effective and Efficient Low-Volume Production
Customized Low-Volume Manufacturing Is the Way of the Future
Today, there are more expectations for customization and diversity from consumers than ever before. As your product lifecycle shrinks and new product launch cycle shortens, flexible innovation and time-to-market are critical to your strategy. Promoted by these, product design develops rapidly and product developers turn their attention from mass production to the low-volume manufacturing.
Depending on the processing methods, manufacturing process, mold tooling and materials being used, low-volume manufacturing generally involves the production range of 100 to 100K parts. Compared to the many risks and costs associated with scaling too quickly to “mass commercialization”, the practice of low-volume manufacturing reduces risk, makes design flexible, reduces time-to-market, and creates opportunities to save production costs. The effective short-run or low-volume production solutions make all stakeholders benefit in the product lifecycle, from design to manufacture and all the way to the supply chain and consumers.
