DO THE MATH
It is not always true that it is more profitable for a company to do the work in house. Over and above normal cost considerations, you have to look at the waste of time and resources resulting from poorly executed deburring work.
|Work done in house||Subcontracting to Deburex|
|Processing time||Longer as a result of a lack of experience and a trial-and- error approach||Well-thought out work plan designed for efficiency|
|Schedule||Unpredictable due to frequent interruptions or shortage of skilled labour||Team of experts on site; short and regular production lead times|
|Equipment||Workers have to make do with the tools available||The best tool for each operation|
|Quality||Lack of consistency in terms of quality and amount of scrap material||Highest possible standards and remarkable consistency|
|Labour||Non-specialized employees who do not have access to mentors when they need help||Team of specialized finishers with unrivalled experience in their field|
|Cost||Included in sales price, but difficult to determine accurately||Very competitive fixed price|
In the end, however, it is when in-house work starts to have a negative impact on a company’s core activities that losses begin to escalate. When orders are piling up, do you think it is more cost-effective to have your employees busy deburring parts or manufacturing parts?
