Advantage Of Sub Contract Production

Subcontractor Selection

Outsourcing a portion or all of your company's manufacturing needs can allow you to reduce your overall expenses, increase productivity or expand your operations. Selecting a subcontractor who meets your manufacturing requirements can be a lengthy process but is one that should be undertaken with care and close scrutiny. No matter the type of manufacturing involved, the selection process will entail many of the same elements.

Ability

Before hiring any manufacturing subcontractor, carefully assess their capabilities and ability to meet your needs. Take time to ensure they can offer the staffing, equipment and supervision necessary, as well as the financial means to purchase raw materials. Test their organisation by setting up a sample manufacturing run to assess the timeliness and quality of their work.

Quality Control

Producing a finished product that meets your quality standards should be a primary topic during negotiations. For technical and electronic manufacturing, this could mean working within established product performance or assembly guidelines. During the contract period, manufacturing samples should be selected for periodic quality evaluation.

Compliance

Compliance with legislation and regulations should be addressed and reviewed on a regular basis. Issues such as environmental impact laws, waste disposal, union relations and labor laws are the responsibility of the subcontractor but can impact client work as well. For example, products utilising parts that do not meet regulatory safety standards could result in the recall of products.

History

When selecting a subcontractor, ask for professional references and research the company's track record. Talk to current and previous clients to get a first-hand account of their experiences with the company.

Cost

When you have narrowed your choices to a few subcontractors, the issue of cost should be factored into the decision. Consider both the individual-piece cost, as well as the complete contract cost. Ask about discounts or other incentives that may help with the decision-making process.
