In the world of manufacturing, mass production is not always the answer to achieve and to result in more sales and more profitability. As a matter of fact, mass production will limit the revenue you can make because of some problems that it might give your business – problems like:
- A longer time to market
- Inability to shift and to change production
- Overproduction of goods
Lean Manufacturing Methods
Those problems led to the coining and the creation of lean manufacturing methodologies that are aimed to help businesses achieve greater and higher profitability without producing too much. One of these strategies is called high-mix, low-volume, and from its term, it’s something that several businesses need for them to meet the ever-changing demands of the market.
Unfortunately, not many manufacturers and fabricators in the industry are equipped with the right and the correct skills, expertise, and types of machinery to provide high-mix, low-volume manufacturing or HMLV – and that is where we at Illinois Contract Manufacturing Experts come in.
Who Are We?
We are a manufacturing and metal fabrication company that is open to serving clients from all around the globe. We have structured our processes and procedures in order for us to help out our clientele with the production of a high mix of goods and products in low volumes.
The problem that we saw with mass production and mass manufacturing is that some equipment and products have over thousands of parts and components – and if they were to be mass-produced, raw materials and parts might not be enough for its variations.
HMLV at a Glance
HMLV or high-mix, low-volume manufacturing is a method in which businesses and companies get a good mix of the different products they offer, producing them in low and in progressively increasing volumes.
With HMLV, companies and businesses are able to:
- Get a faster time in the market
- Save in the production costs and expenditures
- Be more flexible in the production
Faster Time to Market
What does “time to market” mean? Time to market is the term used in manufacturing as the time needed for a specific product to be made and completed to be offered to the public. With low volume production, achieving faster time to market is easier and is made better.
Without the overproduction of some goods and products, companies and businesses are able to adjust correctly in their time to market.
Better Quality Output
Mass production is usually generic as the procedure is more focused in terms of producing a large scale of products and outputs. But when you patronize HMLV manufacturing, you can guarantee that the quality of the work will be better and higher because they’ll be handled not just by machinery and equipment.
We’ll be able to help you achieve higher and better quality since it’s just going to be for a limited amount.
Who Needs HMLV?
Companies that produce outputs, equipment, products, and other commercial goods that have different variations might need the help of HMLV manufacturing. In fact, even companies that need to produce a big and large volume of goods may benefit from it, too.
HMLV can be a good advantage especially in terms of maximizing expenditures and costs, and as a matter of fact, it might be the lean method they need to maximize and to optimize their profitability and their cash flow.
A Recommendation For Startup Companies
One reason why startup companies are recommended to have HMLV is for them to be able to save. Imagine producing goods and hiring manufacturers for your company – you might not have the skill, the experience, and the expertise to perform it.
By startup companies asking for help from HMLV manufacturers, they don’t just get a better and a higher quality of their production, they’re able to save money, too.
