OEM organizations often play a passive role in managing their own remanufacturing programs. Unfortunately, many repair centers leverage their positions within the OEM’s supply chain to engage in production, inventory management, and repair processes that aim primarily to satisfy their own needs, rather than the needs of OEMs and their end users. As a result, OEMs are losing their voice when working with repair centers. This loss of autonomy can often result in misunderstandings and a lack of communication that lead to rising rework costs that impact an OEMs bottom line.
Standardized Processes Fail to Serve OEM Businesses
Most repair centers attempt to use standardized procedures to meet diverse demands, but such a cookie cutter approach is not the best way to serve distinct OEM customers. Each OEM has its own operating processes based on, amongst other variables, the kinds of industries and end users it serves, its mission, and its values.
While the repair centers that are using this generalized approach may feel satisfied, they are also ignoring the needs and interests of their specific OEM customers.
Benefits of a Custom Remanufacturing Program for OEM
A personalized remanufacturing program provides Original Equipment Manufacturers with a way to save some money. Instead of losing money pitching components into junk yards, smart OEMs can choose to work with a remanufacturing center that aims to repair rather than replace.
A customized remanufacturing program can also help OEMs actively contribute to a cleaner environment. Increase your sustainability as an OEM by implementing an individually tailored remanufacturing program.
