Value add assembly is the process of assembling individual parts before they reach the assembly line. This can be completed by an outsourced logistics provider in a separate warehouse or in a different area within the same warehouse. The purpose of implementing a value-added assembly solution is to create a more efficient manufacturing process by assembling parts before they enter the assembly line.
Value add assembly services are important as they allow the manufacturer to optimise their operations by increasing throughput and minimising quality issues. A value-add assembly solution allows the customer to optimise space on their assembly line, reduce costs associated with quality issues, increase manufacturing efficiency, and reduce capital investment.
Typically, in a value-add assembly process, the components or parts are produced by two different suppliers but are assembled together in the manufacturer’s final product. For example, a boat manufacturer may source a boat engine from Supplier A and the mounting bracket for the engine from Supplier B. Both components would be shipped to one logistics provider who would complete a value-add assembly by: 1). Unpacking the components. 2). Assembling the two together. 3). Repack per customers requirements. 4). Ship to assemble product to the boat manufacturer. This product is now ready to be installed on boat, saving the boat manufacturer from having to complete this step during their manufacturing process.
