Supply Chain Optimization

FloridaMakes is connected to a nationwide initiative to support supply chain optimization. For your company, that means we can identify the technology needs and trends of specific supply chains, provide a step-by-step roadmap to help you address risk, increase visibility and create opportunity – as a supplier or in developing your own supply chain for the parts and processing you need.

Among the services we can provide your company:

Supplier Scouting. FloridaMakes can provide your company with information on the supply chain needs of OEMs, Tier 1 manufacturers and government agencies. In addition, through the NIST Manufacturing Extension Partnership, we may receive requests to identify Florida manufacturers who can meet the requirements of larger companies or federal agencies. In those cases, FloridaMakes will work with the Regional Manufacturers Associations to help identify manufacturers who have:

  • Technical capabilities and production capacities that match the procurement needs; and
  • The required demographic characteristics.

Supplier Improvement. Through the national supply chain initiative, FloridaMakes works with manufacturers that contribute to larger, key supply chains to implement firm-level process improvements and quality enhancements. These initiatives are designed to reduce costs and improve outputs for large OEMs and government.

Supply Chain Optimization. FloridaMakes works to optimize supply chains, in part through a series of strategy sessions on executive engagement, partner engagement, risk management and total cost of ownership.
