Outsourcing of sub-assemblies reduces
overall cost of automation projects

Major cost savings accrue from detailed analysis of:
(1) Acquisition Costs and (2) Possession Costs

Cost of Acquisition:

  • Unit pricing
  • Quoting time including: phone calls, formal quotations and evaluations
  • Administering paperwork required to proceed purchase orders and quotations
  • Mistakes occurring in processing the volumes of purchase orders and quotations
  • Handling associated with receiving, inspecting, storing, kitting and invoicing materials

Cost of Possession:

  • Carrying costs average approximately 2% per month
  • Interest cost on money tied up in inventory
  • Cost of space required to store inventory at various manufacturing stages (i.e., stockroom, inspection, receiving work in process, etc. often at a cost of square feet times lease cost per square foot)
  • Cost of handling, cycle counting, and receiving
  • Cost to process shortages, rejects, over shipments, early shipments, obsolescence, inventory shrinkage, and scrap

You can save the cost of these non-value added transactions by working with Airline on assemblies.
