Manufacture Outsourcing
The trend for many large companies today, particularly in the electronics sector, is to outsource manufacturing activities. For smaller and start-up companies there is usually no alternative - as the majority of funding is channeled into Research & Development.

Micro Mart is uniquely positioned to service this requirement for both large and small companies through a network of sub-contractors (both local and further afield) covering all activities from PCB manufacture and assembly through to injection moulding, sheet metalwork and test equipment manufacture.

We can take a product at any stage from prototype to production and advise on the most cost effective manufacturing route.

PCB Procurement
Through our network of sub-contractors we are able to procure prototype and volume PCBs at very competitive process.

The cost of a PCB can vary enormously depending on many variables - turn round, volume, panelisation, layer count, and not least the manufacturer used.

Micro Mart Electronics will advise on the best solution for your product, taking all factors into account, ensuring that you pay no more than necessary for your PCBs.

www.gm-gi.comWhile the outsourcing industry in the United States has been a source of recent fear and controversy, America’s history of outsourcing dates back to the industrial revolution of the late 17th century. Covered wagons were covered and clipper ships sailed with outsourced products from Scotland, with raw materials originating from India. Even the ancient Chinese and Japanese empires outsourced to their conquered nations. In the United States many computer companies outsourced payroll processing during the 1970s and 1980s.

Globalization, explosive Internet growth, and development of an information society has made outsourcing an integral part of the world economy. American companies such as Intel and Sun Microsystems maintain large research and development departments outside the United States. The United States has a depleting talent pool in technical fields, while China produces the largest number of computer engineers every year. Software outsourcing is a $1.5 billion market in China with an annual growth rate of around 35%.

Although the Asian market for IT outsourcing is promising, it does suffer from a lack of English language proficiency and Chinese companies do not have established quality control procedures such as those which are commonplace in India. The problem of software piracy in China does not help it become a credible destination for software development either. While the Internet is spreading in Southern Asia, a weak infrastructure, antiquated legislations, language barriers and the cost of Internet access seem to be hampering growth in IT outsourcing opportunities.

Therefore, the future of outsourcing in Asia may not be in the expected areas of IT services; it seems to be making a move towards electronics manufacturing and design. Among a diversity of services currently being outsourced to Asia are printed circuit board manufacturing, including complete layout design and creation. Electronics manufacturing in Asia takes advantage of the inexpensive labor costs. The industry recognizes the region’s increasing proficiency in computer and electronics engineering, while avoiding many of the pitfalls which have been experienced with IT outsourcing in the region.

The IT sector has proven offshore outsourcing can succeed, however the largest opportunities in outsourcing are yet to be realized. It is evident the practice of outsourcing electronics manufacturing to Asia will be an integral element of future outsourcing trends.

“Contract Manufacturing (in the U.S. or Asia) made easy」
We would like the opportunity to prove we could cut your production costs by 20-40%. We would do this by making your company’s U.S. or global contract manufacturing in the more efficient. We handle all phases of the process:

Competitive Bidding: We handle the competitive bidding process, giving you the option of making product in the US or Asia. We know which countries and what vendors to use to reduce your costs.

Project Management: We will handle all problems that develop over the course of a job. Our project managers will track your work and keep you informed of the status of your work during all phases of production.

Quality Control: Our multi-level quality control system makes it possible for us to deliver the quality work our clients demand including high tolerance metal parts, assemblies and sub-assemblies, computer games, electrical, electronic and medical components. Our QC team will ensure that your product will adhere to American standards of quality assurance be they made in the US or China.
ONet would like to relieve you of your production problems so your management team can spend its time developing your company’s core competencies. To learn more about the details of how we handle projects click here.

Although we manufacture a lot of product in China, we also use domestic vendors for companies that service the government, military, and aerospace. If you’re looking for a domestic or offshore contract manufacturer, ONet can be your sole source provider.

One last point, if you are seeking the lowest prices in China we are not for you. ONet has made the strategic decision to confine its client base to companies that view quality as an overriding issue. Consequently we only use the best vendors. Obviously, their pricing is a little higher than China’s low end manufacturers.

Our sourcing services have been used by some of the world’s most discerning companies: B/E Aerospace, Proctor and Gamble, Sylvania, Energy Focus (optic lighting), Oral B, Rain Bird (irrigation systems), Gillette, Sperian Protection, and a wide range of other small, medium and large companies.

If your company wants to save money by consolidating its international contract manufacturing under one supplier, be it made in China or the U.S, turn to the experts and start saving — today. Why risk costly mistakes reinventing the (global sourcing) wheel. If you have questions call 800.772.0970 or visit our Inquiry Page.

Outsourcing Innovation
First came manufacturing. Now companies are farming out R&D to cut costs and get new products to market faster. Are they going too far?

As the Mediterranean sun bathed the festive caf▽s and shops of the C?te d'Azur town of Cannes, banners with the logos of Motorola (MOT ), Royal Philips Electronics (PHG ), palmOne (PLMO ), and Samsung fluttered from the masts of plush yachts moored in the harbor. On board, top execs hosted nonstop sales meetings during the day and champagne dinners at night to push their latest wireless gadgets. Outside the city's convention hall, carnival barkers, clowns on stilts, and vivacious models with bright red wigs lured passersby into flashy exhibits. For anyone in the telecom industry wanting to shout their achievements to the world, there was no more glamorous spot than the sprawling 3GSM World Congress in Southern France in February.

Yet many of the most intriguing product launches in Cannes took place far from the limelight. HTC Corp., a red-hot developer of multimedia handsets, didn't even have its own booth. Instead, the Taiwanese company showed off its latest wireless devices alongside partners that sell HTC's models under their own brand names. Flextronics Corp. demonstrated several concept phones exclusively behind closed doors. And Cellon International rented a discrete three-room apartment across from the convention center to unveil its new devices to a steady stream of telecom executives. The new offerings included the C8000, featuring eye-popping software. Cradle the device to your ear and it goes into telephone mode. Peer through the viewfinder and it automatically shifts into camera mode. Hold the end of the device to your eye and it morphs into a videocam.OUTSOURCING INNOVATION

Home ? Benchmarks & Best PracticesUpdated: 07/20/2008 Contract manufacturing risk mitigation and risk management
As contract manufacturing business development wins more OEM programs, the risk of the contract manufacturer not being able to recover his investment decreases because similar outsource product manufacturing programs often have similar startup support requirements.
Direct cost, total cost of ownership, and reducing risk in low cost locations
Countries in low cost regions such as Asia and Eastern Europe may well be better positioned for many high volume manufacturing product needs. Furthermore, in many instances, these geographies may be ideal for offering a stronger ROI when executives are engaged in high-volume production.
Contract pricing, profits, and OEM direct costs
While there are some common outsourcing manufacturing contract formats, no two contracts are identical and, there is no viable, common platform that can be applied to every outsourcing contract pricing model with regards to either party’s profits.
5 improvement opportunities ranked by contract manufacturers
Our survey asked electronics contract manufacturers, original design manufacturers, and prototype houses to rank, in order of importance, their top 5 improvement opportunities. Read what they selected.
Supply chain contract delivery schedules, schedule changes, liability
Typically, what many OEMs are presented with from their contract manufacturing partners, with regards to supply chain contract scheduling and schedule changes, allows for schedule changes to occur but there is a limit to the degree of change in manufactured product volumes delivered.
Vietnam offshoring and outsourcing contract manufacturing
A few of the electronics companies currently manufacturing in Vietnam include Intel, Canon, and contract manufacturing and design companies Spartonics, Mechatronics Engineering Group and, MiTAC Precision Technology.
Outsourcing cost reductions and benefits
This article breaks down the outsourcing cost and savings analysis for an OEM outsourcing program while also presenting the contract manufacturer’s cost of performing supply chain management services for the OEM customer’s business.
Program management responsibilities and activities
Program management responsibilities inside the contract manufacturer can vary based on the type of products going into production and the industry in which manufacturing takes place.
Startup company product contract manufacturing and design outsourcing
Startup executives can refer to this plan to help them review internal depth and scope capabilities against anticipated company capability requirements so they may then determine at what point it may make sense to consider evaluating and engaging a contract product design partner or contract manufacturing partner.
Manufacturing problems and alerts
