In addition to traditional competitive issues, OEMs face a myriad of challenges associated with managing the multitude of suppliers involved in a complex design and manufacturing process. With continued pressures (both internal and external) to reduce costs while accelerating products to market, OEMs often find that they no longer have the internal resources in place to efficiently manage all of the product development and supplier requirements internally.
MPE has an established and robust supplier base as well as a sophisticated and formalized design and manufacturing process. Our team of materials specialists are involved early in the development process and help select the ideal supply chain for your product requirements. We remove many burdens associated with managing product-specific supply chains, ensuring quality and accelerating the product development cycle. Each MPE supplier is scored and ranked on quality, delivery, price, flexibility, and ability to scale. This data is reviewed with the individual suppliers biannually utilizing our Supplier Status Review process.
