Packaging, Fulfillment and Repair Depot
A key benefit of working with EDM is our ability to structure a customized total solution that addresses the entire product realization cycle from product development through end market support. Having a single source, build, pack, ship, and repair simplifies logistics cost and time. We tailor each solution to specific customer needs.
As the popularity of interconnected products has grown, so has the need to integrate programming, packaging, and test to ensure that programming and labelled serial numbers such as MAC IDs, match on product and packaging. EDM has designed standardized platforms integrating programming and test, with packaging also performed within the workcell. In some cases, this operation also transmits these IDs to a customer database as units are tested and provisions those units prior to shipping.
Logistics costs continue to rise and there are benefits to eliminating shipping legs when working with trusted suppliers. EDM can ship to your facility, to your central distribution points or directly to your customers.
Longer lifecycle, higher cost products often have repair depot needs. EDM can support repair depot in either batch and direct from field returns. It can also support batch refurbishment and remanufacturing needs. The benefits of utilizing EDM for both manufacturing and repair depot include reduced component inventory stocking requirements and the ability to utilize existing test equipment for both requirements.
