What is a manufacturing support system?

19 November 2021

We are always looking for ways to improve our client experience. So we ask ourselves, how can we do better? We recently dedicated an article to our technical support, but besides technical support we also know the importance of good cooperation between manufacturers and third parties. For us, support means that we give you the best advice possible and we also wish to receive this type of support ourselves. We consult with our experts and look at a certain problem together to find the best solution. In this week's article we talk more about the subject of the manufacturing support system.

Support system

We wish to operate our production facilities efficiently, organized, planned and with control so we can be satisfied with the product quality and the requirements. One of the factors that makes this possible is our manufacturing support system. This system is also referred to as manufacturing support in logistics or inbound to manufacturing. It basically means the cooperation of us as a manufacturer with a third party who specializes and has a lot of experience in manufacturing specific parts of a certain manufacturing process. Together we learn and improve our processes for the benefit of our clients, so we can deliver the best results.

Some examples

  • Thanks to in-plant line side replenishment we can have the required parts or materials delivered to our locations, or we deliver the parts we manufacture to a third party that finishes them. This saves a lot of costs in storing a product and gives us space and possibilities to use this space wisely.
  • The sub-assembly and parts configuration have the same benefit as above, but this time we assemble third party parts into a component.
  • The finished product is not completely done yet and it's missing some additional accessories, it needs to be packed as well. This is what we call a post-production service and also requires support and good cooperation between all parties.
  • Purchase order management and sourcing can apply to many departments and many different materials. Thanks to our quality partners we make sure that we always use the best materials on the market.
