Build-to-Print Manufacturing
When you partner with CarlisleIT, you’re connected to a customized resource for build-to-print manufacturing initiatives of any scope. Our build-to-print capabilities are strategically aligned to give you complete control over the design and product modification process. Inside our full-service fabrication facility, we can manufacture avionics support products from customer-supplied drawings with product modifications you control. CarlisleIT manufacturing engineers are involved as needed throughout the process to facilitate manufacturability, maximize cost-savings, and minimize waste. Finally, we incorporate a formalized program for tracking customer documents, revisions, and updates to ensure customer-authorized change control and unit-to-unit repeatability between production runs.

Build-to-Print Process

  • Manufacturing engineers and production personnel review customer-supplied drawings to ensure cost-effective production

  • Recommended design or material modifications are submitted for customer approval prior to production

  • Approved customer-supplied drawings are entered into the Customer Document Log (CDL) with all updates recorded as needed during the production process

  • Final production adheres to strict in-house written procedures and approved engineering data to ensure on-time delivery
