This will dramatically reduce the  development time between you and your suppliers. And help in sure manufacturability in the beginning stages.

ACCOUNTING

There are often a lot of small expenses that arise like buying additional tools, remaking spare parts, relabeling, delivering samples from factory to factory all the way down to needing to book accommodations and transportation. We can track all these small expenses so you can give it to your accounting department hassle free.

OUR PROCESS

We are a cross-functional team of designers, engineers and sourcing managers so we can decrease your time to manufacture and increase your speed to market.

1. SOURCING STRATEGY AND RFQ
(REQUEST FOR QUOTE)

Deliverables:
Macro planning + Macro costing + RFQ documents

There are different approaches to sourcing a product depending on its nature and the final customer requirements before blind searching for suppliers.

Analyze technical details:
- breakdown parts and components

- functionalities and technical specs

- color, material, finishing

- modifications and customization

Define your order:
- quantity
- leadtime

- tooling budget

- payment terms

- packing and shipping terms


Then we make sure we write a proper RFQ folder with clear technical details so the first quotations will be the most accurate.

2. SOURCING - AUDIT - NEGOTIATION

Deliverables:
Factories listing + Audit report + Detailed quotation 

We first look into our factories network, especially if you need components parts such plastic, metal or PCBA. Then we start looking find a potential suppliers. We build a shortlist of 15-20 suppliers and we narrow down to 3 to 5 top suppliers we go to visit.

We audit them and start building relationship, during our first meetings we talk with executive management and R&D department to make sure they understand our project and needs.

We discuss the production terms and  factors that could impact price and deadlines. We believe that cost optimization can only be done through solving technical issues instead of sourcing cheap and low quality manufacturer.

3. SAMPLE PROTOTPYNG ADJUSTMENT

Deliverables:
Samples/Golden Sample + Final costing + Final technical files

To proceed any order we must have a golden signed sample that will serve as reference before we open tooling. Such sample usually needs to be adjusted and iterated a few times before all parties give the final approval. 

We use different processes such as HD 3D printing, plastic and metal CNC, SLS SLA, hand made mock up, silk screen printing, laser cutting or engraving.

This step is crucial in order to lock down the final price. We help you to control price changes by finding the best technical solutions especially when it comes to open tooling for mass production.

4. PRODUCTION PLANNING
 SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT

Deliverables:
Production planning GANTT chart + Inventory follow-up

After you place your order we work on a GANTT chart to monitor the incoming production so we can manage the different suppliers involved and the lead time for the different required tooling.

We track inventory of raw material, product, component, spare parts, packaging.

We also plan the different visits we will have to organize along the production follow-up.

5. PRODUCTION FOLLOW-UP

Deliverables
Flow Chart of Assembly + Production line SOP

The key to getting the highest quality production run is to work together with manufacturers in the early stages. To review and confirm quality expectations, management of quality control throughout the supply chain, attention to detail during tooling and production and willingness to solve the issues on the spot.

We make sure IQC, IPQC and OQC are done properly according to our quality assurance documents.

 

We also do inspection on your behalf following standard AQL, sometimes full QC if it is requires. We also can book a third-party to support the quality control.

 

Having a team onsite during final assembly can help ensure product is produced to your specifications and quality you and your customers expect.
