Improving Reliability with Outsourced Designs
Join Adam and Fred as they discuss how to improve a product that is developed with a contract manufacturer (CM)
- Were the terms of the relationship pre-defined with the CM. If they haven’t be there may be suyr[rises when the design owner would like to direct changes or assist in a root cause investigation
- Is it necessary to go so far as to create terms in the contract that establish how ownersjhip and transfer of information for the design and manufacturing process are manged? Surprises in how much control or knowledge is shared can cause great inneficiences if they result in a program pause or transfer to another CM.
- Encourage executives to build a slow and strong relationship with a new CM. Have constant inclusion of the full internal team to make sure all fo their concerns are addressed.
