How to Define Scope of Work with Your Contract Manufacturer

MAECO_How to Define Scope of Work with Your Contract Manufacturer

For most manufacturing start-ups, manufacturing all your components in-house is not feasible. For projects that require contract manufacturing, you want to partner with a contract manufacturer who is able to anticipate the needs of your customer and offer solutions before problems arise. A good contract manufacturer will provide risk mitigation, innovation, quality control, and even manage expectations on timing and speed-to-market.

Another key to having a successful project with a contract manufacturer is by bringing them into the project early on. This will not only help define the project, but also determine the scope of the project.

DETERMINING the SCOPE of a PROJECT

Here are 5 important questions to consider when determining the scope of the project.

  1. What is the timeline needed?
  2. Who will be responsible for key elements?
  3. What expectations do all parties have?
  4. How deeply defined is the supply chain?
  5. What are the key milestones in the timeline?

Addressing these factors at the initial stages of the project can benefit the overall project flow as well as overall timeline.
