L3I Unveils Time-To-Market Outcome Based Partnership
Level 3 Inspection —
Process Optimization with TTM Reduction for Better Parts, Faster.
L3I Unveils Time-To-Market Outcome Based Partnership (OBP)
WARSAW, Ind., August 9, 2011 -- Level 3 Inspection LLC (L3I), an ISO
9001, AS9100 and AAAM 44.9 certified process engineering and dimensional
inspection firm, has announced a 21st-Century Outcome Based Partnership (OBP) hybrid business model based on proven time-to-market (TTM) savings.
In competitive precision industries like medical devices, aerospace and
industrial gas turbine (IGT) engines for power generation, each day’s
delay in TTM can cost the manufacturer hundreds of thousands or, in
extreme cases, millions of dollars. Faster product development and
revision yields both short-term savings and long-term first-mover market
Long known for professional contract-based metrology and advanced
dimensional inspection reports on quick turnaround, L3I is now offering
comprehensive OBP-based process optimization services to help its
precision manufacturing clients reduce TTM and roll out innovations
sooner than their competitors.
Based on decades of expertise in applying the latest inspection and
process-control tools to stubborn engineering and product development
problems, L3I examines the entire development life cycle. L3I’s direct
and comprehensive problem-solving approach weighs structural flaws
against the short-term and long-term bottom lines, identifies extraneous
process iterations, and recommends time- and cost-cutting solutions.
“Our top orthopedic and aerospace clients are renowned in their markets
for innovation,” said L3I CEO, Bill Greene. “They’ve accomplished this
in large part through a TTM advantage – they’re able to introduce the
latest innovative technologies and practices ahead of the competition.”
To ease the transition for companies that are unaccustomed to the
process optimization advantage that can be gained from computer-aided
inspection, L3I is offering zero-money-down OBP’s. Per agreement, L3I
becomes a strategic ally, paid a share of time and cost savings due to
TTM process optimization only after such savings have been demonstrated.
“Studies have proved that L3I's system and method of inspection for
implants is as accurate or better than our CMM's. Since the white light
scanning processes have the required accuracy and can cover so much more
of the feature surface, their data is a more accurate representation of
true size and form.” – Metrology Director, Orthopaedic OEM
