Both major platforms that Lockheed Martin would gain direct access to at SyncFab are based on the blockchain network. With the help of the supply chain platform, the Swissmem members and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) are able to connect with each other.
Using the particular platform, the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) can match their prices with the Swiss suppliers as well as get matched to the ones that fulfill their requirements or criteria.
The supply chain platform has been built to act as a matchmaker between the suppliers and the buyers in the Swiss markets. It helps create a strong and long-term relationship between the subject matter experts and the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs).
This would help the experts to be able to compete with larger companies for a longer amount of time in the logistics sector. When it comes to Lockheed Martin, the Swissmem members will be able to directly use SyncFab’s platform to bid on projects.
Swissmem is known for being the association representing the electrical engineering and mechanical industries from Switzerland. The particular association was reportedly formed back in 1999 and the industries in the MEM group are known to be responsible for Switzerland’s one-third exports.
