What is an OEM Service in Electronic Manufacturing

You have probably heard the term “OEM” before and chances are that you are within arm’s reach of several OEM products wherever you are seated presently. OEM, short for “Original Equipment Manufacturer”, refers to a company that produces systems or components that may be used in another company’s end products. OEMs are usually the first inventors and designers but not the sellers of the finished products. They license out the products they make to be used as components in another’s company products, hence marketing them under the other company’s brand name.

What does an OEM Service Mean

So an OEM service is typically a collaboration between a supplier who shows willingness and ability to make customized designs of products according to the needs and specifications of a buyer. Many brand-name electronics and appliances we see today are good examples of OEM services. A common one is a relationship that exists between a manufacturer of individual electronic components and a company such as Samsung or Sony that put the OEM parts together to make their own finished products. Another great example is the automotive industry. The car you bought was not entirely manufactured by the car company; some parts of the car such as the airbags, navigation units, spark plugs, air conditioners, dashboards, sensors, and even the engines, were manufactured by or outsourced from other companies. You will be shocked to know how small the efforts put by the company in supplying the parts were, compared to branding and marketing.

Is it also the computer manufacturers who integrate several OEM parts such as software and processors into the solutions they sell, or the Ralph Lauren company that bought customized fasteners from a maker of buttons to be used in a shirt that boldly carries the banded RL stamp on it? OEM services are literally scattered everywhere around us. The question is …


Why use an OEM Service?

Partnering with an OEM helps enterprises increase efficiency, reduce labor cost, streamline processes, save time and save money.

OEM products are usually cheaper due to an increased level of production. “The OEM excels in building one product and one product only, and thrives by building hundreds of thousands, or even millions of those products on a cost-effective, streamlined basis,” says TheStreet. When an OEM undertakes contract manufacturing of components, the reseller is allowed more time to focus on its core capabilities and processes as it would not have to develop each part or system by itself. The company also does not have to incur the extra costs or increased capacity involved in manufacturing those components in-house (like having to build manufacturing facilities). All they need to do is just integrate the outsourced parts into their system and sell under their own brand name.
