To increase corporate value in the recent intensifying global competition, it is important to streamline management resources for context operations and focus them on core operations. Technosmile proposes services for corporate evolution.
Streamlining non-core operations through outsourcing ~Technosmile undertakes all the operations in production lines and manufacturing divisions.~
In addition to production work, Technosmile takes care of personnel arrangement, labor management, and top-priority safety and health management.
Characteristics of Technosmile contract manufacturing services ~Flexible contract work patterns~
We propose flexible services that satisfy customer needs.
Pattern 1 Taking care of manufacturing on production lines
Technosmile manages production comprehensively on a single line or multiple lines.
This pattern is that the customer focuses on producing highly-value-added products while Technosmile takes care of the manufacture of mass-produced and ordinary products.
Pattern 2Taking care of production by process
Technosmile takes over some production processes. This pattern is that the customer manufactures products while Technosmile takes care of inspection, packaging and other processes.
Pattern 3Taking care of complete plant operations
Technosmile takes over the complete production plant operations. Customer focuses on product orders only while Technosmile takes care of production operations and control. This pattern is designed to achieve significant cost reductions.
Pattern 4Taking care of inspection
Technosmile takes care of your inspection to improve quality for newly-developed products, standard inspection and non-standard inspection. This pattern is designed to improve quality assurance and achieve cost reductions for non-standard operations.
Merits of outsourcing
(1) Flexibility for variable production volumes
- Manufacturing that keeps up with variable production orders and market demand.
- Minimizing direct employment of employees for business expansion or short-term production increases.
- Employees can focus more on core operations rather than on other operations related to labor management and adjustment.
(2) Achieving low-cost operations
- Comprehensive outsourcing allows the customer to minimize the number of regular employees.
- Only the customer’s employees labor costs are fixed while the costs for outsourced operations are turned into variable costs.
- Because Technosmile takes care of managing the employment of dispatched workers, the customer can reduce various costs including insurance and welfare costs.
(3) Strengthening core operations
- Customer can focus competent employees and budgets on new business, new product development and other core operations by outsourcing context operations and thereby reducing excess costs.
- Customer can disperse risks for emergencies by establishing a cooperative framework with Technosmile.
(4) Response to compliance
- One challenge with the use of staffing services is the limitation on the term of use (three years at maximum). For our services, the term is not limited. So the customer can use our services for extended periods.
Precautions in the use of contract manufacturing services
- Customer is not allowed to give instructions directly to workers engaged in contract processes.
- Customer's employees are not allowed to give instructions directly to workers engaged in the contract processes which Technosmile undertakes. (This is regarded as fake contract work.) It is necessary to send directions to our workers through our contract process manager.
- Customer's employees are not allowed to perform operations in contract processes.
- Customer's employees are not allowed to perform operations in the contract processes which Technosmile undertakes. In principle, only Technosmile workers can perform operations in these processes.
- When the customer wishes to give instructions and guidance to Technosmile workers
- When the customer also wishes to give instructions and guidance to Technosmile workers or have both the customer’s employees and Technosmile workers perform operations in processes, we also suggest our staffing services. We can propose a package of contract manufacturing and staffing services best suited to customer needs.
