For a business that provides contract assembly services, a custom box build can come in an infinite number of forms. Companies, like Data Cable, can be a control panel manufacturer, a breakout box manufacturer, an operator station manufacturer or a mechanical sub-assembly manufacturer.
Many of these contract assembly companies can be specialists in a particular field of control panel manufacturing. An example of this specialization would be what the industry calls a panel shop. A panel shop would be a control panel manufacturer that is structured to provide 'one off' assembly services. This type of control panel manufacturer would typically produce the main control panel on a custom machine, and only produce it once.
Data Cable is structured to produce lower volume, repetitive builds that would more typically show up as an operator's station, as one example. Data Cable supplies control panels to customers that require assemblies to be consistent from one order to the next so that they can control the variability in their end product and achieve predicable consistent results despite low production volumes. Variations in the design are considered as different part numbers/products to better control the ordering process.
Control panel manufactures also face the challenge of continuous revisions to their customer's design. This may be driven by the end customer, feedback from field service, a new regulatory requirement, or a design enhancement that will increase sales. Regardless of the input, the result is that the contract manufacturer must be able to control revision changes effectively in order to satisfy their customer in this dynamic environment.
