When manufacturers need a part, they expect it to be there. Herndon Products partners with its customers to not only have parts available when needed but also ensure that it's the right part. Herndon Products manages the supply chain from order placement to delivery to the bin.
As a creator of supply chain solutions for the aerospace and defense industry, Herndon Products understands how critical it is for a manufacturing facility to have the parts necessary to complete production efficiently and effectively. The absence of one part can cause an entire manufacturing line to come to an immediate halt. On-time supply management and parts availability is critical to successful production outcomes.
The Integrated Prime-Support Vendor Program (IPV) was developed by the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) in an effort to streamline the supply chain solutions for industrial hardware, reduce multiple levels of inventory and use commercial best practices to provide bench-stock support to mechanics on the production line.
In order to provide customers with the highest-quality service and on-time delivery of critical parts to customers, Herndon Products has implemented an Integrated Prime-Support Vendor Program. The IPV program allows Herndon Products to manage various sources of supply and streamline the acquisition of parts needed on the production line, thus achieving the most cost-effective supply chain model for customers.
Benefits of this service offering include a more rapid order-ship time; reduction of procurement and inventory costs; and improvement of forecasting and inventory management capabilities.
"The job of our Integrated Prime-Support Vendor Program is to anticipate customer needs and have supplies immediately available," says Scott Herndon, President and CEO of Herndon Products. "We've implemented successful IPV programs with more than four US Army, Navy and Air Force programs already."
Herndon Products ensures the success of its IPV Programs by using the proprietary HPCS system - a proven IT solution. This system combines point-and-click capabilities to comprehensively control and manage all supply chain solutions from a single source. Unlike many other providers who retrofit a prior IT solution, Herndon designed the HPCS system specifically to work with IPV ensuring a more flexible and capable source for integrating data from various suppliers, partners and customers.
From the most straightforward assembly to the very complex manufacturing project, Herndon Products can provide a robust, high-quality Integrated Prime-Support Vendor Program. Every single part is integral in order to ensure weapon readiness. To find out how Herndon products can implement such a program for you, contact us today.
