During the pandemic outburst, the Canadian government awarded a contract to manufacture 10,000 ventilators to sustain critical needs of hospitals treating COVID-19 patients. The manufacturer innovated and designed a new product and contracted Global Partner Solutions to help manage the logistics of supplies, product delivery acceleration and quality validation related to the assembly of their newly designed medical device.
During this project, GPSI deployed agents at the final assembly facility and at multiple sub tier suppliers’ sites located in Canada, the United States, Mexico, and Poland.
The GPSI team helped track and deliver over 80,000 parts manufactured within 6 months. Just in time delivery to the final assembly line was required, shortages were monitored through line of balance charts and fulfilled to ensure productions lines were fed on time.
The logistics were stabilized, and the delivery of the final product was consistent and on time, making this project a success story.
