Many companies are already looking for smart solutions to optimize part costs during product development - and not just in response to increasing cost pressure. The potential here is particularly great for individually designed drawing parts. SMEs usually have neither a cost engineering team people nor sophisticated and investment-intensive design-to-cost software at their disposal. They can either use a rough cost estimate or use a lengthy coordination process between design, purchasing and contract manufacturers.
Especially for companies in this situation, the manufacturing platform of Spanflug provides an efficient approach to optimize part costs. Spanflug offers much more than instant quotes with market-driven prices and delivery times. Numerous field-proven value-added functions support designers and buyers right from the development phase.
So how exactly can Spanflug support here?
1. optimize part cost already during the design phase
2. procure custom machined parts as easily as catalog items
Once the ideal configuration has been found, you can easily save the articles under a unique article number for the parts list and transfer them to purchasing for ordering. This means that individual turning and milling parts can be ordered just as quickly and easily as catalog items. Your purchasers are relieved, frictional losses in communication are avoided and the procurement process becomes more efficient.
