This scenario happens all the time and you’ll never even know it. In many situations, parts are sent out for quote once finalized (or close to it). If the procurement department likes the price and lead time, Purchase Orders or payments are issued, and off the parts go to their fabrication service, becoming a reality.Say the procurement department did their homework & collected information from different shops. Then, decided to go with the fabrication service that provided the cheapest price and the most competitive lead time. Job well done. Cheapest Quote does not Equal Cost Reduction! What if there was a feature included in a part that unnecessarily made the part more labor intensive, or may use more material than what makes sense for the part? Up goes the cost without it needing to. If you sent the job out to twelve fabrication services of your choice, you may never get any feedback or suggestions how to save some money per part! You may be using the cheapest quote to get the job done, but it may not be the best price.You need a Cost Reduction plan that won’t bog down the fabrication services currently working with you. In Precision Manufacturing alone, it is very easy to accrue costs that could otherwise be avoided with some simple direction & optimization.There are ways to save money that won’t jump out at you without someone pointing them out. The scenario above is only one reason why you will find DesignOCS is so important..
