INDUSTRY SOLUTIONS: CONTRACT MANUFACTURING

Deliver more value for your customers.

Short product cycles and high cost of quality make contract manufacturing a challenge.

For contract manufacturers, there’s intense pressure to deliver high quality products at low costs. And even with pressure to deliver the lowest prices, contract manufacturers are still expected to build complex, high-mix, customizable products with short PLMs. Customers expect transparency from their CMs, and they’re increasingly interested in understanding production KPIs.

Short product life cycle requires flexibility

Complex products/high-mix assemblies

Paper work instructions are inadequate for rapid NPI cycles

Difficult to track, measure, and report KPIs across products

Tulip’s no-code manufacturing apps help contract manufacturers optimize even the shortest production runs.

Tulip apps can be customized for every product. Dynamic, media-rich work instructions guide operators through complex assemblies and guarantee quality in-line. Machine monitoring apps and IoT connectivity give front-line engineers visibility into all processes. Tulip apps generate real-time data that CMs can use for continuous improvement.

Flexible work instructions can be customized for each product

Media-rich work instructions guide workers through assembly based on product attributed or operator skill level.
