Trying to choose a manufacturing partner is both challenging and intimidating. Not only will it determine the future of your medical or electronic device, it will also tie up your time and resources for the foreseeable future. In this blog post, we look at 3 important traits every manufacturing partner should have.
Communication skills. Clear, concise communication is critical to the success of the device that you are manufacturing. If a manufacturing team can’t explain their workflow or the machinery that they use, it’s a major warning sign. You want to work with someone who will treat you like an equal. Skip the industry lingo and confusing jargon.
Industry knowledge. Manufacturing experts regularly read industry publications, attend conferences, and are active participants in the local manufacturing community. Before teaming up with a manufacturing partner, make sure that they are familiar with new trends and technologies and actually care about the work they are doing.
High quality work. What kind of products does the manufacturer you want to work with put out? Do they have strong ratings or does a bad reputation precede them? If past customers aren’t pleased, it’s probably not worth your time.
