Who is responsible?

For us to ensure a long-term, mutually-beneficial relationship, it is important to establish ‘who does what’ early-on in a products development life-cycle to eliminate any confusion. It is important that both of us take ownership within the process to ensure the roles and responsibilities are directly linked to service level requirements.

When is the best time to start thinking about manufacturing?

Early collaboration between us may lead to faster development timescales and lower costs. The earlier we are approached, the easier it is to establish manufacturing volume expectations, cost parameters and regulatory requirements.
