Need made-to-order or OEM/ODM your product? No problem. We specialize in finding a solution for any product needs. We can turn your product designs and specs into a reality efficiently and quickly. Our legal team will also help you with any type of patent and trademark protection required if needed. With RediLink you can manage this process every step of the way.
To begin your OEM/ODM process, we:
1. Analyze the drawings, samples, and visualizations you the client might have and define goals, timelines, and possible problems.
2. Define the types of manufacturing industries that would typically operate the manufacturing equipment or manufacturing processes required to produce the required components or products. This includes you as the clients’ databases, our list of preferred component manufactures or assembly houses or we can help isolate new specialists. The point of this stage is not to source for mass production but to find networks that can get you past your Engineering Validation Test (EVT) stage with as little work as possible. Whenever possible we try to work with suppliers that can be worked with along aide you during the whole design train.
3. EVT – Monitor and support to ensure you are getting the right prototypes and your supply chain is isolating problems and data that will support the entire process. At this stage important decisions are made with material selection, price points, production times, and other various elements of the supply chain.
4. Qualify by telephone, or by in-person interviews, a selection of these potential vendor sources to determine their ability to efficiently produce specific components or products and/or compare to your existing list of vendors. This is done to cost-reduce and/or isolate vendors for a better fit for mass production.
5. Identify and profile the potential sources of the required components or products based on an agreed-upon specific set of criteria (SIC code, size, location, or other.)
6. Meet with selected potential vendor companies to present the benefits that will accrue to them by having our client become a valued customer providing the potential vendor with additional cash flow and revenue.
7. DVT – At the Developmental Verification Testing stage we begin to qualify and improve quality control methods and documentation, and verify the processes being used and look to improve them working towards mass production. It is at this stage that the suppliers for mass production are all locked.
8. LVR – Hopefully by the Low Volume Production Run stage all problems in the process are already smoothed out, but we will assist with any late-stage design or quality issues that are present.
9. At mass production we move into a Quality Assurance role unless a major issue arises.
10. Assist with any final issues or concerns that might arise such as logistical support.
