WE'RE YOUR TURN-KEY MANUFACTURING PARTNER

Our vast experience over multiple markets has directed our focus toward the Mobility, Defense, Aerospace and Agriculture industries. Our value offering is to provide turn-key solutions to manage the development, manufacture and delivery of customer products. We provide these solutions though product-centric services ranging from manufacturing feasibility, engineering and execution of preproduction builds – all the way to volume production. This spectrum of services is what sets us apart. We can deliver all facets (or customize our services) to meet a partner’s particular needs in order to provide a world class, product-centric manufacturing process.

MANUFACTURING –
It’s What We Do and Who We Are
Our manufacturing engineers develop product-centric plans that focus on the needs of the product AND the needs of our partners. Following this plan, we can identify and apply just the right level of technology for each specific project and application.

Examples of Manufacturing Deliverables:
  • Manufacturing Feasibility – Stackups, GD&T Reviews, PFMEA & Control Plans
  • Line Layouts, Cell Development & Associated Tooling, Fixtures & Equipment Design
  • Work Instruction & Build Book Development
  • Value Stream Mapping
  • Virtual Build Simulation

QUALITY ENGINEERING –
Constantly Improving the Process
Quality engineering defines supplier value requirements as well as incoming, in-process, outgoing and continuous improvement activities. There is a defined set of standards for which we apply under ISO but, to best meet partner needs, we also focus on critical product requirements to incorporate the best practices from APQP, UL, AS9100D, TS and IATF – and more as necessary.

Examples of Engineering Deliverables:
  • Complete Control Plan Containing:
    • PPAP Requirements
    • Specialty Requirements – UL, ITAR, High Voltage, etc.
    • Incoming, In-Process & Outgoing Quality Control Plans
    • Pre-Delivery Inspection Requirements
  • Product Centric Quality Metrics
  • CAPA Scorecard

SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT –
From Contractor Selection to Finished Goods Shipment, We Handle It All
Our supply chain team has the ability to start with a make/buy analysis and then, if required, provide cost modeling for strategic sourcing and prepare commodity strategies for each project. We are fortunate to have longstanding relationships with established suppliers covering a broad spectrum of services regarding commodity type, geographical location and overall capability. From component sourcing to forecasting material availability on the production floor, we support programs of all complexities.

Examples of Supply Management Deliverables:
  • Advanced Purchasing Cost Modeling During Design
  • Developing Early Relationships with Supply Base
  • Commodity Strategies In-Place
  • Just-in-Time Inventory Planning
  • Real-Time Inventory Tracking & Reporting
  • Import/Export of Raw Materials or Finished Goods
  • Supplier Quality Assessment & Assurance Measures In-Place

HUMAN CAPITAL MANAGEMENT –
Getting the Most from Workforce Assets
Scaling resources to meet partner demands is a critical part of production. Our portfolio of businesses and extensive partnership base allows our team to flex resources as necessary to support given demand. Our team’s expertise lies in effective resource allocation that allows us to apply the right level of resource when necessary. Personnel at all levels of expertise are assigned to a program team to best meet cost, quality, and timing objectives.

Examples of Human Capital Management Deliverables:
  • Creating a Weekly Resource Loading Plan
  • Defining Roles & Responsibilities for all Program Team Members
  • RACI Matrices

OPERATIONS –
Optimizing Technologies & Processes
The Edison approach brings a Tier 1 solution without Tier 1 costs or headaches. Our team utilizes a state-of-the-art ERP and MES solution along with poka-yoked processes (such as the integration of wireless torquing systems). These processes are applied only as required by the performance characteristics of the product. Our approach allows for the understanding of available incoming supply-to-planned-demand and extends as far as who installed which fastener, and when.

Examples of Operation Deliverables:
  • Secured Space to Contain Customer Intellectual Property
  • Lean Process (5S – Sort, Set, Shine, Standardize, Sustain)
  • Root Cause Analysis Tools
  • Time Studies for Value-Added & Non-Value-Added Time
  • Scalable Approach – Right Level of Technology for the Application (for example, as demand increases, a line can be reconfigured, or a shift added)
