Paragon unlocks secret to outsourcing success with one size does not fit all approach

20 FEBRUARY 2009

Paragon Electronics Components’ innovative business model is changing what OEMs can expect from their EMS partner. With its proven ‘best-fit’ approach together with decoupling the supply chain from the assembly, Paragon has a solution to the challenges associated with outsourcing electronics manufacturing.
With assembly sites in the UK, Central Europe, North Africa and Asia, Paragon’s sophisticated multiple EMS facility model is based on the belief that, when it comes to electronics assembly, one size does not fit all. A key element of the company’s ‘best fit manufacturing’ initiative is the ability to decouple the supply chain management tasks from the assembly and test. A centralised hub at the groups’ head office focuses on supply chain management, kitting and logistics, while production is assigned to either group-owned manufacturing sites in the UK and Central Europe, or one or more of a number of accredited manufacturing partners based internationally. This structure gives Paragon the flexibility to select assembly sites on a best-fit basis by taking into consideration, technology, skills & capabilities, local labour costs or proximity to important markets.
Before each project begins, Paragon uses a set of sophisticated sign-off procedures to ensure that all of the information necessary to build a given product is fully understood, and up-to-date.
Once production is up and running, the team recommends a detailed review to identify and solve any issues, delivering a full NPI report immediately after the first build.
