The slightest mistake during a precision engineering project can delay the delivery date severely. If certain processes are not followed, the whole system collapses.
Waiting for a delivery of components that has passed the agreed delivery date can feel like being on an organ donation list, being booked in for a surgery and then being told you need to wait another week, month or longer! Frustrating!
Bad suppliers who don't respect your lead time might brush a late delivery off as a minor inconvenience... but we know that consistently late deliveries can mean the difference between life and death for smaller businesses.
So, to put the importance of delivery on time into perspective, let's compare each stage of our precision engineering process to an organ donation!
