Product Development

At APS we realize that significant cost reduction begins in the development phase and our focus on DFM (design for manufacturing) is one of the key components to our success. During the early design phase, APS takes into consideration total manufacturing costs and helps customers to:

  • Avoid single-source components.
  • Minimize lead-time delays.
  • Design "automation-friendly" products for increased automation (or partial automation).
  • Simplify assembly process for mass production without an increase of BOM costs.
  • Eliminate components requiring complex and expensive service.

 

The APS Contract Management division works closely with the APS Design & Development division that provides a full-range of design services, including:

  • HW Design
  • SW Design
  • Mechanical Design
  • Full Product Design
  • Automation Design

 

At APS we help our customers to focus on their core business strengths while outsourcing to APS those tasks that are overly time-consuming or not within the customer's core expertise. APS helps companies to streamline the design process and consistently manufacture cost-efficient products.
