More often than not, problems in the early stages of a manufacturing contract with a local or offshore supplier are caused by inadequate documentation.
Simply hoping that suppliers will do exactly what you want is a recipe for disaster. Even asking suppliers to recommend what they consider is best or ‘usual’, or leaving it up to them to decide, is asking for trouble.
The problem is compounded with manufacturing offshore with language and cultural differences.
To avoid misunderstandings that inevitably lead to conflict, everything must be specified precisely in writing.
GBOS provides a documentation and specifications audit service to ensure that all relevant information is included, and all specifications are defined completely in the appropriate format.
The audit covers everything from labelling and raw materials up to major components, so that your products can be manufactured to the same specifications by any of your approved local or offshore suppliers.
Contact GBOS on 1300 880 613 or by email to discuss your specifications auditing requirements.
