Universal Tube uses a Value Analysis Value Engineering (VA/VE) approach that:
- Enhances decision making
- Lowers Costs
- Improves Quality
- Increases customer satisfaction
- Reduces lead times
The VA/VE activity is an important part of our product development process. Our Value Analysis examines materials and processes to improve part quality and reduce costs. The Value Engineering side focuses on new product development and helps indentify and prevent problems before production. VA/VE is an integral part of our Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP), and is a major contributor to the success of Universal Tube and our customers.
Our Prototyping capability offers faster turn around times and aides in identifying potential problems before production launch. Our engineering and tooling departments work closely together to solve problems in the design stages ensuring quality. We succeed where others fail to produce prototype parts to customer specifications.
