BALANCING QUALITY AND BUDGET
Bringing new products to market in competitive industries is a challenging prospect. We all want quality parts, but need to balance that with the pressures of getting new products to market fast and keeping production costs low.
In short, new product introduction can be the stuff of nightmares if not handled correctly.
OEMs turn to outsourcing to take advantage of the many benefits of working with an experienced supplier. Early Supplier Involvement combines the resources of two organizations early for maximum results.
3 REASONS PEOPLE DEPEND ON EARLY SUPPLIER INVOLVEMENT:
- Accelerate product development. Choose a supplier with the skills, resources and experience to handle full product development–including engineering and materials selection–to reduce the risk of delays as a project is handed off between steps. At KASO, our experienced engineering team offers design optimization assistance to ensure products are ready for production.
- Identifie product designs that simply aren’t feasible as designed. Your manufacturing partner can help you eliminate design elements that may seem attractive upfront, but in the end will not prove out.
- Reduce mold tooling costs by proving out designs prior to tooling. Test designs using tools like 3d printing for strong, durable prototypes that behave more like finished products.
