With the start of the new year comes the time to assess current and future development projects. For current projects, you are likely asking a few questions. Is your current project on-time? Is it operating on or under budget? Have the deliverables met the quality standards you expect? If not, is it time to make a change?
For new projects, the questions may be more complex. What type of company will you partner with, an industrial design firm, contract manufacturer, or outsourced product development company? Does the partner understand the requirements of the project? If there is a regulatory aspect, does the partner have experience with compliance?
No matter what time of the year, development organizations struggle with these types of challenges around their development projects. The wrong answers could lead to delays, budget overruns, or, in the worst case, a product that can’t be manufactured at the cost and quality needed.
At Resolution, we work with companies facing these challenges every day. Sometimes, it’s a company that hired a contract manufacturer for their complex product development and mid-way through the project had gone over budget, over time, and it was clear the partner was not going to be able to deliver. We are able to step in, perform a frank assessment of the project status, and provide the services to get it back on track, helping get that company to a high-quality, manufacturable product.
In other cases, the development projects are in the early stages and an outsourced development partner must be selected. Generally, the decision is between a “one-stop shop” that claims they can do the design, development and manufacturing all in-house vs. a company like Resolution, that focuses on product development, and leverages partners when needed to support any industrial design or manufacturing needs. For complex projects, a best in class outsourced development services provider is the best option.
