PROBLEMS WE SOLVE
We partner with our customers and add value to every part of the customers product lifecycle. If any of the below issues or challenges feels familiar, we suggest we meet as soon as possible to discuss how we can make life easier for you!
NOTE Lab services secure and optimise your product for batch production at the initial design stage, using our standardised New Product Introduction (NPI) methodology and dedicated project management. We match up our well-recognised manufacturing expertise to your design team, offering design support, component selection, test strategies and equipment. We deliver fast prototyping, feedback reports and pre-series analysis before handing over an optimised, quality-assured product to batch production.
We can provide our customers with an analysis of the bill of material concerning component lifecycle status, enabling a more proactive and structured PCN and EOL management. The analysis also contains suggestions on alternative components as well as RoHS and REACH compliance and Conflict Mineral status. This gives us both a good start on the collaboration and extends the life expectancy of our customers’product.
Partnering at an early stage, especially in sourcing, ensures a consistent approach to supply chain management, giving all parties the prospects for success with an efficient and competitive supply chain.
We adopt a best-fit approach to selecting the right NOTE site for batch production. State-of-the-art technology and equipment, the capability to handle significant variations in batch size, product complexity and service scope, right from PCBAs to box build and system integration, bring superior manufacturing capabilities. This means we can assemble complete products ready to ship.
We are continually working to improve and optimise the logistics solution to meet your needs at the lowest cost and lowest risk. We do this by always considering the entire flow through your supply chain, i.e. your desired blanket of PCBA or finished products from NOTE and all the way through our production and purchase, down to blanket size and lead time of each individual component. This process-oriented holistic approach is a key element in our work and culture that ensures high delivery precision and agreed flexibility at minimum cost and risk for both you and us.
Product sustaining is a great lever for your service offering and profitability. NOTE has the relevant skills and services to offer sustaining services like spare parts manufacture and second-line support for field installation repair. NOTE also provides services like warehousing products/spare parts, end of life management, component sourcing and documentation management. We take pride in prioritising customers even if their products aren’t in stable batch production.
