ATS selection

Project Initiation

  • The customer and Asia Tech Source sign a non-disclosure agreement allowing ATS to receive the customer’s proprietary information
  • The customer provides approved samples and/or photos, annual unit volumes, written part or product specifications in the form of English narratives or engineering drawings or an inspection checklist which define the appearance, form, fit, and function of the subject part or product identifying any criteria that are deemed critical to quality

Over 400 Sources of Supply

  • ATS locates and qualifies several prospective suppliers for each item that is to be sourced after signing a non-disclosure agreement with each candidate
  • ATS quantifies the quality gap, if any, between the prospective supplier’s expected performance and their current performance
  • If it is determined that a quality gap exists, ATS develops and manages a corrective action work list of improvements in machinery, tooling, process, material, design and workmanship that the supplier must agree to implement before the supplier can be used to quote or produce
  • After supplier qualification, ATS provides a quotation to the customer including unit pricing, tooling cost, minimum order quantity and lead time to first-piece samples and lead time to production
  • ATS manages the supplier’s tool build schedule according to the product development plan, including the complete evaluation with the customer of first-piece samples and subsequent modification of tooling
  • Upon the customer’s approval of satisfactory first-piece samples, ATS authorizes the supplier to enter the pilot lot phase of product development or full production if the customer is willing to waive the pilot lot
