A customer in the military industry needed an assembly for a new production program in a short lead-time, and the part design had not yet been proven out.
Upon initial review of the CAD file received from the customer, the engineers at KAL Manufacturing used the Early Supplier Involvement (ESI) process to determine that, if produced as designed, there would be part misalignments at assembly. We made changes to the files to correct these issues and worked with our customer to implement the changes to ensure proper assembly.
This solution made it possible for our customer to make the critical first delivery to their new customer on time, with a fully functional assembly.
