A key differentiator, among contract manufacturers, is how value-added their plastics processing has evolved to meet today’s cutting-edge technology. At Flussig, we offer value-added product assembly services from semi-manual to high-speed automation. Most of today’s manufacturing requires levels of automation of the assembly floor, most of which is unique to the product lines being produced. As a result, Flussig makes its own tools and fixtures on the line to drive productivity, meet performance specifications, and provide consistency in our quality metrics.
Work instructions are posted on each assembler’s workstation, along with visual aides, to ensure operators adhere to the stipulated process. Flussig operates just-in-time, ship-to-stock, and ship-to-line programs, continuous flow manufacturing, demand flow processes, and statistical process controls.
Our manufacturing and product assembly services benefit from inventory management expertise and volume procurement capabilities, which contribute to cost reductions and reduce total cycle time.
Through a manufacturing resources planning system, Flussig enjoys real-time visibility on material availability and real-time tracking of work in process. We utilize electronic data interchange and web portals with customers and suppliers to implement a variety of supply chain management programs. Electronic data interchange allows customers to share demand and product forecasts and deliver purchase orders while also assisting suppliers with just-in-time delivery and supplier-managed inventory.
