Do you know what it takes to “set a supplier up for success”? Most contract manufacturers want to make their customers happy. But it will be difficult for a them to meet your expectations if they have not been clearly communicated.  Do you know what your expectations are? Do you have a plan on what you are looking for in a contract manufacturer? What are the critical points?  It’s important to have developed a clear and executable plan in place before you begin to start interviewing your potential partners. Make sure you are asking the right questions, providing the right information and in the right mindset to facilitate a successful and collaborative environment… Then the two of you can prepare for SUCCESS!
