Machine Building/ Industrial Products
Industrial products cover a wide range of application: components, small appliances and machinery. Regardless of their specialization, all companies face fierce competition and high customer requirements concerning cost, quality and timely delivery. Consequently, organizations have to find an approach to meet their clients’ wishes:
- How do we offer competitive prices if raw material prices increase?
- How do we define the target costs for our products?
- How do we source materials from emerging markets like China?
- How do we enable suppliers to deliver the required quality?
Given the diversity of this industry, there is not just one "correct" approach to support our partners. Our projects involve a rich variety of topics and solutions. SILU Production Engineering Co., Ltd combines its technological and functional knowledge with German/Chinese market expertise to deliver tangible results and sustainable impact.
With our technology expertise in the fields of die casting, paint/surface treatment, plastic parts, electronic components, motors/aggregates and convey or belts, we are able to support our partners to meet high quality requirements and solve operational issues. Moreover, our functional knowledge in sourcing, supplier management, factory/logistics planning and organizational development is appreciated by numerous partners from different areas of industrial products.
Asia Pacific and especially China is the biggest electronics manufacturing base in the world. Global OEMs like Flextronics or Foxconn manufacture high class electronics products for local and global supply. Next to Chinese global electronics-OEMs China has one of the largest supplier bases for electronics. In 2011, 48% of the global electronics supply comes from Asia Pacific and 27% directly from China.
Next to high scale electronics manufacturers there are several small and medium sized electronics manufacturing companies in the market. Different quality levels determine corresponding cost levels that match different industries requirements in cost and price.
SILU supports its partners to identify suitable electronics suppliers and in electronics suppliers qualification (e.g. VDE-specifications).In particular SILU provides know-how and experience on the following components:
- Isolator for SPI Lasers
- EC-Motors (DC Motors, BLDC Motors, Hydraulic Motors)
The automotive industry is going through the most challengeable period in its history. Therefore, companies need to ask some crucial questions to sustain and grow:
- How do we adapt to new markets, e.g. China, which are different in terms of local competitors, supplier base, and production?
- What are the sourcing potentials in emerging markets?
- How can we qualify our supplier to meet quality requirements?
- How do we optimize our logistics concepts?
We can help our partners to solve these challenges by our capabilities in procurement, supplier management/enabling, lean factory planning, logistics management, and manufacturing. One of the major challenges arises in the sourcing process. Suppliers need to be chosen carefully, because shorter innovation cycles and new technologies are increasing the performance requirements in the sourcing process.
Hereby, we assist our partners with our extensive knowledge of markets and technologies. Our services ranging from PPAP processes, supplier development/integration, serial production qualification to organization development help to drive innovation, increase operational efficiency and sustain quality.
The strengths and capabilities of our extensive industry knowledge and resources can help our partners in procurement, supplier development, lean factory planning and lean logistics planning by improving your production efficiency and capacity significantly.
By taking advantage of market expertise and Germany market-oriented knowledge we can provide better services to the overall product and deliver solutions to problems during the production process in a more efficient way.
