What is Low-Volume Production?
Low-volume manufacturing means producing smaller quantities of parts or assemblies, although the exact amount may vary by situation, application, or industry. Also called small-batch production, it’s used by everyone from startups to Fortune 500 companies to ensure the products they deliver to market perform as expected.
There are many benefits to this production method over high-volume orders. Here are some reasons why:
- Low Cost
- Greater Design Flexibility
- Faster Time To Market
- Acts As Bridge Between Prototyping And Full-Scale Production
Low-volume manufacturing offers the ability to make changes otherwise not possible with high-volume manufacturing. Products are made in small quantities, so the impact of design modifications is minimal.
Since orders are comprised of smaller quantities, turnaround time is also faster than high-volume manufacturing. This enables you to deliver products faster than other production models.
Furthermore, low-volume production can be a bridge between prototyping and full-scale production. It reduces risk, lead time and costs, and will continue to benefit many industries in the future.
