An automotive launch can sometimes include last-minute design changes while supplier and part consolidation is taking place. When Optimas experts were integrated early in the process, one particular customer enjoyed 40% reduction in part count.
Real Results, Real Impact
Part Count Reduction
An automotive customer’s vehicle launch involved not only two models with last-minute design changes, but also parts and supplier consolidation. The critical challenge was ensuring inventory availability to meet delivery expectations.
Our locally based engineers worked with the customer at the design stage, applying their deep industry connections to introduce new product technology. The supplier engagement was managed in such a way to secure qualified inventory within 40 minutes after the customer made the decision to go with our recommended solution.
New product technology was introduced with sub-50 PPM defect rates and meeting or exceeding PPAP level 3 standards.
