Production Startup, Ramp, and Management

Great design and meticulous engineering alone do not guarantee a successful product. Many businesses struggle to identity potential manufacturing partners, navigate the regulatory compliance process, and set up reliable supply chains. Our team has the experience and insight to handle manufacturing management on your behalf. We work as an extension of your team to help ensure that manufacturing startup, ramp up, and steady state product run as smoothly as possible. By relying on our team to manage production, your team can focus on marketing and selling your products.

Supply Chain Definition.

With your product design complete, focus shifts to defining the sources and suppliers for the various components required for production. Vetting these partners and defining multiple approved sources for the most critical components helps to mitigate long term production risks. The SGW Designworks team is able to identify, engage, and qualify suppliers on your behalf. We then build out and maintain Approved Vendor Lists (AVL’s) to ensure that production lead times are not drastically increased by issues with a single supplier.

Regulatory Compliance.

What regulatory testing will be required before marketing and selling your product? What standard must the product meet? What laboratories and regulatory bodies are the right ones to engage? SGW Designworks will identify a regulatory plan for you based on your product and your business goals. We can then manage the testing and documentation process as well as any design revisions / iterations required as a result of regulatory testing. What about ongoing compliance documentation? We’ve got you covered there as well.

Manufacturing Management.

With the supply chain defined and regulatory compliance plan underway focus can shift to ensuring that ongoing production, ordering, and fulfillment execute seamlessly. SGW Designworks can actively manage your relationship with the manufacturer / supply chain so that your team can focus on what matters – generating sales. Since the product design, engineering, supply chain setup, and regulatory work were all executed by the SGW Designworks team, any product revisions or product line extensions can be efficiently incorporated into the system.
