“Do you know a place to get this made?” That’s a question JD Albert, our Director of Engineering, hears a lot from entrepreneurs looking for a manufacturing solution. It’s actually a very complex question.
Hardware manufacturing ranges from designers making ten products by hand to companies producing millions.
Participating as a panelist during the session, “From Prototypes to Production” at last fall’s Design for Manufacturing Summit, got JD thinking about commonalities and whether there’s a blueprint we can all use to solve our varied manufacturing puzzles, or at least to begin to identify a right path.
In “How To Figure Out Your Best Manufacturing Solution,” JD’s latest piece for Entrepreneur, he offers three manufacturing truths and ten questions to ask yourself to begin to determine your best path.
