As you look to outsource your manufacturing, you must make the choice between consignment and turnkey manufacturing. Turnkey manufacturing means many things to different people. At QSC, it can be described as a manufacturing function encompassing all assembly and supply chain management.
QSC provides complete manufacturing solutions including:
Contract manufacturing used to be simply providing the labor and equipment to build a circuit board assembly. This still accounts for roughly half of the business at QSC.
When choosing the consignment option, you will provide all materials and kit the parts for delivery to QSC. An audit of the kit will be done to your pull list or BOM prior the kit being released to the production floor.
Many of our customers provide some of the components required and we buy the remaining parts. Whether you have already purchased material, have inventory on the shelf or have long lead-time items you wish to control, QSC will work with you to make it work. There may not be a right way but there might be a better way.
