EMS efficiency for small batch sizes
European Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) providers face major challenges if they want to compete in the global market. One challenge is to steer many small batches of products and variants efficiently and safely through production every day.
For EMS providers, it is not about producing the large series of mass producers, but about meeting the different needs of producers who order small batches in high quality and numerous variants for different markets. New, increasingly individual products in many variants are constantly being introduced there. This increases the number of customers who need small quantities with short delivery times. In this type of New Product Introduction (NPI), it is important to combine high speed with equally high accuracy.
