Launching a new product is an exciting time for OEMs but it also presents some challenges. There is often a tight budget and a strict schedule to adhere to in order to meet the product launch targets – and the launch is critical to the success of the product. No matter what your injection molding product is, the reasons for a delayed launch are often the same. Below are 3 of the main reasons why product launches are late – and some ideas to minimize the risk associated with each in order to set your product on a track to success!
Product packaging is sometimes an after-thought – just an additional product cost that companies don’t have time to optimize. The reality is that secondary operations such as packaging are well worth the effort to improve. When partnering with a single-source provider such as Crescent, product packaging becomes an extension of the production process, providing customers with a complete manufacturing solution, and providing value by minimizing the number of vendors involved and enhancing product reliability and consistency. Single-source providers that offer packaging services streamline manufacturing by improving efficiency - saving OEMs time and money on various costs such as transport, storage, product damage, and materials.
