Detroit Chassis has successfully developed several collaborative business relationships to develop, design and assemble custom vehicles. Detroit Chassis has partnered with 3rd party logistics, sub-assembly and sequencing providers to deliver value added modular assemblies to automotive and commercial truck customers.
Concurrent product engineering and process engineering, and upstream computer simulation of manufacturing processes identify potential assembly bottlenecks and tooling conflicts in virtual space before actual tooling expenditures and pre-production begin. This can result in dramatic savings in dollars and time. Customer designers and SPECTRA manufacturing experts work together to ensure that products are assembled efficiently and correctly. The company’s ability to bring early involvement of its extended family of lean manufacturing and process engineering experts into the design process results in:
- Shortened time to market
- Decreased development time
- Reduced overall costs
- Retention and transfer of intellectual property
