When you hear the term “manufacturing,” what are the first things that you think about? Do you initially think about the mass production? Do you have this first thought of creating tons of copies and products?
Though manufacturing is really the term of making huge quantities of a singular or multiple products, there’s a principle called high-mix, low-volume, or simply, HMLV. From its term, you should already know what it is.
What is HMLV?
High-mix, low-volume is a type of manufacturing that refers to a large scale of products that are produced and delivered in smaller quantities. There are industries that indulge in this discipline because they tend to focus more on the versatility of their product line than the amount.
However, not all HMLV manufacturing has a high demand. The primary reason for this discipline is the fact that there are some products and units that have less demand, while there are those with high demand.
We here at Ohio Contract Manufacturing Specialists are the company that you can go to if you need help with HMLV. We’re the company you can count on to provide a wide range and scale of manufacturing – from regular contract manufacturing, job shops, to HMLV and even Low-Mix, High Volume manufacturing.
Samples of High-Mix Low-Volume Manufacturers
You might be thinking – are there any industries, companies, and industries that practice this discipline? What types of companies would they be? There are manufacturers that indulge in this, in fact, they are:
- Forge Shops (of any kind)
- Fabricators (of any kind)
- Repair Facilities (of any kind)
- Foundries (of any kind)
- Machine Shops (of any kind)
- And many more
As you may have noticed, these are the industries and manufacturers that are not catering to the commercial aspect – more often than not, these industries are the industries that cater to other businesses, too and they can either be structural and industrial.
Is the Commercial Industry Always Exempted?
Even if the usual markets are manufacturers and industries that cater to other businesses, the commercial side is not exempted, too. For instance, bicycle shops don’t necessarily need to have a high volume of production. As a matter of fact, they’d need specifications based on the market they have.
Bicycle companies need to produce specific categories based on the demand of the specific product. If they make high volumes of the same product, it can lead to overproduction which is bad for the company.
The Importance of HMLV
Why do you think this type of discipline is important? What can this help companies and manufacturers with? It might be stating the obvious but the common reasons why HMLV is an integral practice that should be observed by manufacturers because of cost reduction.
We here at Ohio Contract Manufacturing Specialists can be the help you need if you want to decrease pricing and cost. Whatever metal fabrication you need, we will assist you in controlling the price and the overall cost of your operations.
For instance, if we have a client that needs several products from different categories with UNIT A having produced units a month, and UNIT B producing about 50 units a month, we will help them by gradually producing the highest quality of output you need.
This way, you wouldn’t have to worry about the quality – you’ll tend to focus more on tallying and counting how much you need for each unit.
A surplus is one of the reasons why businesses produce more than they need. With HMLV manufacturing, there’ll be less surplus and more focus on what you need in a shorter time period. Companies, businesses, and even manufacturing companies that work with us usually commend us for the control and the management we have.
Whether they are a small-sized job shop, or if they’re a contract manufacturer, we will simplify all of your procedures while keeping the quality at bay – and you will never have to worry about the number of products and output you produce!
HMLV is definitely one of the processes that can help you greatly in producing greater value and output for your company while keeping the consumption of your resources low. With us here at Ohio Contract Manufacturing Specialists, you can walk away with satisfaction and contentment with how your outputs are produced.
One thing you should consider with the HMLV approach is that the processes and the methodologies are constantly changing – this can lead to a few inconsistencies not just with your products, but also in the resources and the processes needed to create the product.
More often than not, job shops are one of the best examples of HMLV because of the versatility of what they do. When they’re done with one client, they move to another – it can cause confusion with the workers and laborers, as well as the types of machinery and equipment being used.
