Premium Sourcing Case Study: Cable Assembly Case Study

SoPark Cable Assembly 1

This is a case study from our Premium Sourcing Service.

Issue: A $200M high tech manufacturing company was having delivery problems from a mechanical cable assembly source. The cable was used on various table support structures. My duty was to locate another source who could deliver on time without compromising quality.

Action: I contacted 55 mechanical cable assembly houses. They were informed that this item was custom made and that blueprints would be provided. 75% of these sources responded. 16 of those produced bids. First article samples were received from one bidder within two months of opening issue.

Results:
  1. Inspection of fit, form, and function was successful.
  2. Dynamic pull testing by mechanical engineers at the manufacturing plant revealed superior seamless shank joints.
  3. Price improvement was substantial.
Savings:
  • $21,000 (66%) annual savings.
