CUTTING TOOLS: Scale Up and Streamline

Whether part of a multi-division global corporation, a small-sized business, or somewhere in-between, supply chain teams are tasked with saving costs, balancing usage/forecast, and ensuring that products arrive as expected.

MITGI is ready to work with your supply chain team to:

  • Review buying patterns to recommend right-sized buys with pricing that is optimized for forecast
  • Provide competitive quotes on high running tools currently purchased via other suppliers
  • Establish blanket orders to minimize inventory, invoicing only for tools shipped
  • Scale up and down through product life cycle to ensure no disruption of service while maintaining adequate inventory levels
  • Support continuous improvement initiatives through designs optimized to increase tool life and performance
  • Bridge initiatives between supply chain and R&D teams to incorporate goals of both into new tool designs
  • Consolidate and simplify global or regional purchasing

Ready to discuss how we can work together to achieve supply chain goals? Contact us today.

At MITGI, it’s not business as usual, but business as exceptional.

MANUFACTURED BY MITGI: Continuous Improvement

Nearly every company we work with has goals tied to continuous improvement. For some that means reducing cycle times on a specific project. For others it means increasing tool life on a long-running job to create significant cost savings throughout the life of the product. In some cases, companies may need to improve tool performance so that fewer operations are needed.

MITGI works with companies every day to help identify the exact needs at hand and offers ways to achieve the goals through cutting tools.

Recently we worked with a medical device manufacturer that was tasked with reducing cycle times during the initial scale-up for production. Learn more about the project and approach >>
