Production Strategy

The organization of effective supply chains requires know-how and negotiation skills. Finding the right technology at a proper price point can be challenging but the success of a new product offering often depends on entering the market at a competitive price point. Prime contractors need to create a competitive environment to buy sub-systems and know how at a proper price point. A project leader should also consider strategic licensing to acquire technology. In addition to good supply chain development practices, many defense items require acquisition of energetic materials (propellants, primers, detonators and explosives), metal parts, fuzes, electronics and associated production technologies. Our international team has deep experience organizing the import of technology and effective transition into production.

Supply Chain Development

Considering the expected life of your product and bargaining power of suppliers, some sub-systems and components require special attention by an engineering team. Once a system is engineering decisions are taking incorporating a key component, a company may find themselves as the mercy of an aggressive supplier.

In some cases, the engineering and purchasing teams should utilize their bargaining power – before taking key system integration decisions.
