Why You Should Choose a Vertically Integrated Aerospace Manufacturer
When you’re looking for a manufacturer who can produce aerospace components with complex manufacturing requirements, it’s a wise idea to consider a manufacturer that offers higher levels of vertical integration. The concept behind vertical integration is to unite companies offering a variety of services at different stages of production in order to simplify the supply chain for the end user. This offers customers a variety of benefits that reduce their costs and turnaround times throughout the production process.
One of the largest advantages of working with a vertically integrated aerospace manufacturer is a reduction in the transaction costs associated with component production. When dealing with an extended supply chain, each separate company includes costs to cover not only their materials and labor, but also operating expense and other incidental expenses associated with their general operations. These overall costs are reduced with a vertically integrated aerospace manufacturer, because of the efficiencies gained through their higher levels of vertical integration. Internal savings is also achieved by the customer, by reducing transaction costs associated with finding and managing multiple vendors and multiple contracts. Working with a vertically integrated aerospace manufacturer also significantly reduces turnaround times throughout production in several ways. Vertically integrated manufacturers can coordinate transportation between service providers internally, saving significant time and inventory costs for end users. Since vertically integrated aerospace manufacturing companies tend to have unified ERP and MRP systems, it’s also easier for them to use Kanban and other demand management techniques to accommodate JIT production.
