Effective supply chains are critical to your manufacturing operation. On average, more than half of a manufacturer’s total spending occurs in the supply chain, making it an ideal target for reducing costs and mitigating risk. Delayed materials can wreak havoc downstream by disrupting schedules, creating work stoppages and ultimately causing missed shipments to customers. The MEP National Network’s supply chain services help you address various aspects of supply chain management and development.
Our experts can help with supply chain challenges including supply chain management and optimization, integration of software, inventory control and supplier scouting. The Network has also developed a supply chain guide to help you find out how your company can take a more strategic approach to managing your supply chain.
MEP Centers can work with you and your supply chain to reduce manufacturing critical-path time, lower supply risk, grow strategic supplier relationships and increase flexibility – helping you become more competitive and respond to the ever-changing needs of your customers.
Our supply chain experts will connect you with U.S. suppliers including large companies, government agencies and other organizations that match up with your products and technical capabilities.
