Production Startup, Ramp, and Management
Great design and meticulous engineering alone do not guarantee a successful product. Many businesses struggle to identify potential manufacturing partners, navigate the regulatory compliance process, and set up reliable supply chains. Our team has the experience, insight, and relationships to handle all of these things on your behalf. SGW Designworks has established a network of trusted manufacturers and suppliers that we can engage on your behalf. We work as an extension of your team to help ensure that manufacturing startup, ramp up, and steady state production run as smoothly as possible. By relying on our team to engage and manage manufacturers, your team can focus on marketing and selling your products.
Why? SGW Designworks has learned from many years of product development that products are more likely to launch successfully when manufacturers are engaged early in the development project. Early engagement helps ensure that the manufacturer can offer design input, and that the client is able to build a relationship with the manufacturer long before actual production startup. This all leads to smoother transitions from development to production, lower overall development cost, and higher likelihood of successful production ramp-up.
How? As a client of SGW Designworks, you gain access to our network of trusted manufacturers and suppliers. SGW Designworks will engage the right network manufacturer on your behalf during development. Manufacturer engagement and review of designs is part of the SGW Designworks product development process, starting in Phase 2. Manufacturers in our network have capabilities covering nearly all manufacturing methods and materials. Network manufacturing facilities are located in US, Mexico, Taiwan, Malaysia, and more.
