Customer demand for faster turnaround required a drastic reduction
in tooling lead-time.
Reduce lead times to 4 weeks from order acknowledgment.
PTD met with the customer to review drawing packages and develop
a firm understanding of what would need to be accomplished
to meet the extremely compressed lead times. After the meeting
PTD committed to helping this customer meet its lead-time
Reduced lead-time from 10/12 weeks to 4 weeks with a few days
to spare. Beyond the lead-time issue the customer needed to
rework many of the tools they were receiving from their previous
tooling supplier. PTD eliminated that work by producing tools
and dies that exactingly met the customer's specifications.
