Aligning Engineering and Supply Chain
Our team brings a high level of expertise gained through years of experience planning, preparing, and implementing manufacturing. We have learned that it is critical for engineering to align with the supply chain to bring a product to market successfully. We take a system thinking approach by analyzing the business as a whole rather than its parts. By integrating engineering and supply chain, you gain insight into how each design element affects the other in the manufacturing of your product. This holistic approach allows us to deliver optimized solutions from initial product design to delivery to your customer.
“You wouldn’t believe how many customers come to us with a product that really is not ready for manufacturing. … They need that intermediary step to focus on getting it ready for production [and] there is nobody out there doing that. There are lots of engineering firms that offer engineering, but they don’t offer what Matt and Peter (BKW) offer. And for us, that was critical.” - Mark Wood, CEO, Microart Services Inc.
Accelerating ideas and mitigating risk
Transforming ideas into finalized products is not a linear process with clearly separated phases. It is a network of information, design elements, and skills that have to be integrated, managed, and optimized. Throughout the process, you need to see not only the immediate details but also how they align with company objectives and product specs. Navigating these complexities can be overwhelming. At BKW, we have the experience to guide you through this journey efficiently and we teach throughout the process, ensuring that the knowledge developed stays with you and your team.
Unlocking your competitive advantage
The manufacturing industry is constantly evolving. In order to remain competitive, existing products and operations need to be agile enough to meet changing customer needs and demand. BKW helps firms to assess their current capacity to determine opportunities that may be hiding within your existing operations. By re-aligning supply chain, engineering, product design, and manufacturing operations BKW can unlock value to sustain your competitive advantage.
