Today more laboratory device OEMs in the life sciences are realizing they either don’t have the technical staffing to support motion control R&D or they’ve determined their real opportunity is in producing the consumables their customers require rather than the instrumentation. That leads them to outsourcing as much of the instrumentation design as they can.

Here are six key questions you need to ask and have answered before selecting that partner.

6 questions you should ask before choosing your next motion supplier infographic parker hannifin automation

  1. 1. DID YOU KNOW? 80% of the cost optimization opportunity is locked in when the design is finalized When FDA approval is required, the design is often frozen for years because re-approval can be so costly FINDING THE RIGHT MANUFACTURING PARTNER REQUIRES ASKING SIX KEY QUESTIONS. Ask: Is this element our core competency? If not, partner with others. The first key to optimizing manufacturing cost is to determine what you will do yourself. THE 6 QUESTIONS You Should Ask Before Choosing Your Next Motion Supplier Howto accelerateyourdevelopment process and reduceyourproject risk? WHY ASK THESE 6 QUESTIONS? WHY ASK THESE 6 QUESTIONS? Question 1 Do you use a Stage Gate Process? Question 2 Do you use trained program managers or project managers to lead your development projects? A stage gate process outlines and defines the steps and deliverables required during each phase of the project. Joint OEM and vendor management reviews at each stage gate ensure smoother development of the right deliverables at the right time Trained and certified program and project managers deal with the challenges that plans don’t anticipate. Early involvement of program/project managers in the commercial and technical details is critical for success. Question 3 How will your quality management system ensure a low RPPM? A key to the lowest Return Parts Per Million (RPPM) is variability reduction in both product and manufacturing design A robust quality management system like Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) or Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) can deliver the highest quality product with the fewest returns Question 4 Do you have a process to manage your design efforts to meet a target cost? The best time to manage design for cost is before you freeze the design. You rarely have the opportunity to go through a value analysis after the product is released. A Quality Function Deployment (QFD) type tool helps manage the tough decisions relative to function and cost up front, when it most counts. Question 5 What is your long term production strategy and how will you ramp up to production volumes? Choose partners that have the capabil- ity to ramp up production Partners with a global footprint can go anywhere in the world that you go, making manufacturing more local for a leaner supply chain. Question 6 Do you have a culture of continuous improvement? Unless you are improving processes, reducing lead times and reducing variability at a rate above your com- petition, competitors will gain an ad- vantage over you. Choosing a partner with a culture of continuous improvement and the ability to assist you in improving your processes will give you the edge on the competition.
