XFM Weekly Report #8

The rain has stopped and the sun is shining. It's hot.
Hi, I'm Aiko Yokoe from SONICWARE. Thank you for your support.
I'll be sharing the development status of LIVEN XFM on this blog every week until it is shipped to those who have pre-ordered it.

LIVEN XFMをプレオーダーしてくださった方に出荷が完了するまでの間、開発状況を本ブログにて毎週シェア致します。


1. Development status and schedule / 開発状況とスケジュール

Mass production of LIVEN XFM started as scheduled on June 21 at our factory in Malaysia. As I reported in a past blog, Malaysia is currently under full lockdown, which was originally scheduled to last until June 14, but the lockdown period has been extended.  The official extension period of the lockdown will be reported by the Malaysian administration later this evening.

During the lockdown period, the factory was required to reduce its operating rate to 60%.  As a result, we have been operating for three days this week and this has affected our production speed.

Normally, it would be more cost effective to transport the products once a certain quantity has been produced. We hope to be able to deliver it to those who have pre-ordered XFM, even if it is only little by little.  For the time being, we will be shipping completed XFMs from Malaysia to Japan every week, and will ship them to customers as soon as they are checked in Japan.

We have a small quantity that we were able to produce on Monday of this week.
It is currently being shipped from Malaysia to the Sonicware warehouse in Tokyo.
We will check them as they arrive and start shipping the new arrivals next week.

We are still in the early stages of production, so we can't calculate exactly how fast we will be able to produce and ship.
Our immediate goal is 30 units per day (90 units per week).

We expect the lockdown to be lifted and the production line to be speed up.
We are aiming to complete the shipment to the first lot in the next four weeks.
For those who have received the second and third lots, we will then aim to ship them in late July or early August.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and thank you for your patience.

We will keep you posted on this blog as soon as we have new information.
