Here are a few quick tips to avoid getting caught with delays due to non-production days:
Staying aware of upcoming holidays is your first line of defense. By factoring these holidays into your production schedule, you can account for the lost time or avoid it entirely by ordering in advance of non-production days. This is especially important for long holidays such as the Chinese New Year.
If you're planning on leveraging our overseas network and a Chinese holiday is blocking you from receiving your parts by your deadline, you can re-configure your quote to be produced by our domestic network.
Fictiv's quoting platform typically offers multiple production speeds for a part. If your current production speed is too slow, try re-configuring for a faster lead time.
Depending on your part's geometry, there may be small DFM changes you can make that will result in a faster lead time. Chat with us or email us at email@example.com for assistance with evaluating these changes.
