Manufacturing and Sourcing

One of the unique scenarios that most product manufacturers are confronted with is ‘what to make in-house versus what is to be outsourced’. The decision making becomes more complex and critical especially in the case of new product designed and being set for manufacturing – depends on the manufacturing strategy, funding plans in place. For the sustainable, cost-effective and productive platform it becomes rather important to effectively integrate multi-party efforts w.r.t manufacturing process flow & methodologies, raw material, supplied components & systems, equipment usage. Any concerns at any stage of integration can potentially lead to re-designing resulting in additional cost of iteration and further delay. An end-to-end ownership from design till finished product would greatly help product companies continue to be competitive in today’s fast changing market scenarios.

Tech Mahindra Manufacturing and Global Sourcing Services and Solutions

Our expertise primarily lies in taking the products from design to build (also called as art to part). From purely play manufacturing point of view:

  • Manufacturing methods including design of jigs, fixtures etc
  • Manufacturing Automation covering robot programing, NC/CNC programing etc
  • Global sourcing for raw material, components and sub-systems
  • Cost modelling – predictive costing methodology that brings transparency that empowers decision making

As one of the leading global engineering service providers, Tech Mahindra offers manufacturing and sourcing solutions that complement our capabilities in product engineering and design. Our engineers are experts in design for manufacture (DFM) and design for assembly (DFA). We provide a range of solutions across manufacturing planning, manufacturing support and product cost management. We also house a specialized global sourcing team with expertise in technology, sourcing and quality.

We offer an end-to-end sourcing practice facilitating customers in developing their sourcing strategy by supplier identification, evaluation, qualification, engineering support and consulting across multiple geographies .The practice helps in realizing the benefits by reducing cost, maximizing profits, mitigating risk and decreasing deployment cycle without compromising on quality standards. In addition, our manufacturing support, global sourcing capabilities and global ecosystem of qualified suppliers provide prototyping, testing and manufacturing solutions.

Over the years, we have worked with over 100 industry leaders across several industries. We can support your manufacturing requirements in several ways:

  • Industrial automation to automate your production line
  • Digital manufacturing with robotics and machine tool automation
  • Design for tools, jigs and fixtures for manufacture
  • Target costing
  • Lean and value engineering

While we support your entire manufacturing process with a variety of services, we can also offer manufacturing through our group company, Mahindra Systech.
