Contract Manufacturing Design
Coghlin Companies has extensive product engineering capabilities that range from concept development and feasibility studies through prototype, pilot and scaled test equipment development with a focus on manufacturing design for high volume. Coghlin Companies prepares your product to be ready for market and production, whether through Columbia Tech or Cogmedix, or through your own production facility. Tying in product engineering with Coghlin Companies contract manufacturing capabilities assures the accuracy of production cost estimates and the utilization of a qualified and global tiered supply chain early in the contract manufacturing process, enabling verification of the documentation package to reliably reproduce the builds with great repeatability.
Low Cost Product Engineering
Coghlin Companies provides mechanical, electrical, and software engineering of complete products or subassemblies. Additional services include finite element analysis, HALT, HASS, safety and compliance certifications, optics, and RF. Coghlin Companies’ engineers assure a cost effective solution with Design For Manufacturing (DFM) and cost reduction services oftentimes removing 10-30% of costs from customers’ existing products.
Inventory and Materials Management
Coghlin Companies’ DCI Engineering subsidiary has a strong materials management capability to purchase components and produce a substantial number of pilot units prior to the official manufacturing stage. Our development costs are low because our objectives are aligned with our customers: getting the product into manufacturing. Consequently, Coghlin Companies works to limit scope creep and drives the supply chain aggressively for delivery dates that far exceed industry averages. Complex frames have been turned in 3-4 weeks. Additionally Coghlin Companies retains an inventory of over 100,000 active items in its global warehouse and distribution center which can reduce lead-times dramatically.
