Company Well Positioned for High-Speed, High-Stakes Aerospace & Defense Manufacturing
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (March 30, 2011) — Comprehensive Logistics Inc. (CLI), a premier provider of engineered logistics services for complex supply chains, will highlight its proven ability to exceed the quality, accuracy and delivery needs of the aerospace and defense industries at the AeroDef Manufacturing Expo, April 5-7, in Anaheim, Calif.As an experienced supplier of contract manufacturing capabilities, including complex subassembly, sequencing and value-added services, CLI is well accustomed to the stringent requirements of high-performance, fast-paced supply chains with zero room for error.“For years, CLI has excelled in managing inbound material flows from hundreds of global suppliers, sequencing tens of thousands of parts per day and producing complete subassembly modules for just-in-time (JIT) delivery to the production lines of major OEMs,” says Brian Hume, senior vice president and general manager. “Some of the assemblies we produce have 50 variations each and error tolerances of 40 microns. We also sequence, stage and ship materials to arrive at manufacturing lines just minutes after receiving EDI-based pull signals.”Currently, CLI’s DPPM (defective parts per million) rate exceeds world-class standards. The company also offers a 99.97% inventory accuracy rate and a 99.4% on-time delivery performance record.CLI combines statistical process controls with sophisticated vision systems and robotics, light-directed picking, on-demand labeling equipment, RF controls and multiple barcode confirmation points to minimize waste, variation and the potential for nonconformance. Processes requiring manual material handling are scientifically engineered to reduce the potential for human error and enhance productivity.In addition, CLI’s disciplined Continuous Improvement methodology drives constant refinements that contribute to the organization’s pursuit of flawless execution. As a result, CLI’s customers benefit from exponential increases in efficiency, reliability and financial savings throughout the life of the contract.CLI also captures and stores item-level details—down to the specific torque value of an individual bolt—and makes the information available to customers in real time through its Internet-based supply chain intelligence technology.To learn more about CLI’s proven track record in “mission critical” applications, visit Booth #1048 at AeroDef.About Comprehensive Logistics Inc.Comprehensive Logistics Inc.
