Integrating Value and Efficiency Across the Supply Chain

We offer a variety of services to support efficiency and quality along the entire spectrum of production. When we become involved early in the design process we can ensure that your product is designed for manufacturability and sustainable quality. From our new product introduction program called StartPoint CCM, to engineering services, complete mechanical and electro-mechanical assembly and finishing, we manage a strong and efficient supply chain.


CCM Rapid Prototype Cell

Rapid Prototype Cell Program: Managing Risk & Quality in Developing Prototypes
We At CCM we know that one of the most important and critical tasks facing companies today is to be first to market with their new products in order to beat the competition. CCM's RCP Program helps manage the risk of new product introductions and improves the process.

Our RCP program enables you to prove your product design with low risk, high quality domestic manufacturing. You can easily come on-site to our centrally located facility near O'Hare Airport in the Chicago area. You can get your product up and running, test the market and when you are ready for mass production, we will help you make a smooth transition to an international manufacturing facility.

The CCM RCP Program:

Product Development

  • Project Manager is Assigned
  • Engineers Review Design for Manufacturability
  • Engineers Conduct Failure Modes Analysis


Process Design and Development

  • Preliminary BOM and Work Instructions are Created
  • Prototype is Released
  • Attain FAI Approval


Product and Process Validation

  • Pilot Build Kick off
  • Finalize BOM and Work Instructions
  • PPAP Approval
  • Pilot Build Post Mortem
  • Cell Manager sign-off


Feedback, Assessment and Corrective Actions

  • Closed Loop Corrective Actions
  • Process Failure Mode Effect Analysis
  • Value Add vs. Non-Value Add analysis
  • Training Documentation


Control Plan Methodology

  • Sustain Mass Production Controls
  • Sustain Closed Loop Corrective Action
  • Sustain Process Failure Mode Effect Analysis

We specialize in quick-turn prototypes and maintain a dedicated rapid response manufacturing cell for prototypes and new product introductions. This cell is manned by some of the best trained and most experience journeymen in our company.

This rapid response cell is equipped with multiple lasers, turrets, press brakes and all the necessary equipment and tooling to produce quick turn-around prototypes and short run orders. We can, in most cases, produce a prototype in 3 to 5 working days, depending on the complexity of the project.

Our Strategic Difference

One of our strongest strategic assets is our engineering department. Our engineers can help our customers to take a project from a concept to a finished product with full-service or flexible support through the project.

Our services include:

  • Design Engineering Input
  • Reverse Engineering
  • Design for Manufacturing
  • Tool Design
  • Early Supply Involvement

We are equipped with the latest computerized systems available on the market today. These systems allow us to download and read customer's data files in different formats without time consuming data translations, this also ensures the integrity of the original design. These are just a few of our systems:

  • Project Data Management
  • Creo Elements
  • Solidworks
  • Auto Cad Inventor
  • MasterCAM
  • FabriWIN
  • DraftSight

Let our engineering group work with you on your next project and we will help you get that important new product to market first.


CCM knows today’s clients are searching for a supply base who can add value to their company’s products. That is precisely why CCM has expanded our capabilities to include a higher level of integration. Many people know CCM as a high quality sheet metal fabricator and stamping entity. We are much more than that. Today we add many different components to the metal products we produce that adds value you are searching for.

They include:

  • Plastic components
  • Fans and fan trays
  • Cable and harness assemblies
  • LED assemblies
  • Power supplies
  • Mid-plane boards
  • Assembly tables with full ESD protection

Bring your programs to CCM. We will do “Whatever It Takes” to help you successfully bring your products to market.
