Manufacturing as a Service (MaaS)
Updated: Nov 12, 2020
Manufacturing as a Service (MaaS) is the new way to use manufacturing industry knowledge for growing new companies and startups. Manufacturing as a Service providers can help bring your product to market more quickly, at lower costs, and better quality than building a Supply Chain from scratch.
Vivid has been proving finishing work for the end of supply chains for almost 30 years, and more recently providing Manufacturing as a Service for many private and public companies. Vivid has proven for many years that we can develop and manage an AVL, create a BOM and deliver materials on-time making us the ideal providers of Manufacturing as a Service. Our specialty is high-mix low-volume so we are happy to support projects of all sizes. Our relationships with all types of design groups, plastic suppliers, and sheet metal houses gives us insight on their quality before a developing company may need to find out the hard way.
We are at the tail end of the supply chain, bringing the parts to life with several finishing technologies. Being located at the tail end the chain is the best position to manage any incoming issues from suppliers. Our Incoming Quality Control can catch any questionable functional or cosmetic quality and make adjustments to “stop the bleeding” further up the line. Providing “Manufacturing as a Service” and managing the BOM we can also create and implement corrective actions and solutions for fixing the root cause with an experienced supply chain team.
