Product Development in China

Product Development in China

Cost Benefits Lost

Companies are improving their competitive position through lower cost manufacturing in China but many seem to miss out on the cost and speed benefits of electronic product development for Asia manufacturing in Taiwan or China.

Escaping the extra cost and time invested on the traditional electronic product development cycle in Western economies as well as the product engineering and management costs of migrating and re-designing products for electronics manufacturing in China is the secret to cashing in on the China electronics manufacturing benefit.

The Current Problem

The process of initial product design and electronic product development and manufacturing in Western economies and then migrating those products for electronics manufacturing in China misses out on a substantial opportunity to reduce costs early in the product cycle. Driving up these costs is the lack of flexibility on the part of many Western component suppliers and the longer electronics product development cycles that increase time-to-market.

SYNOMETRIX eliminates this problem through electronic product development for China manufacturing by Western engineers who handle the complete process of electronic design product and development, prototyping, tooling, and manufacturing. Our experience allows for faster time to market and more significant cost savings that are otherwise lost in the electronic product development cycle.

SYNOMETRIX moves your product past the unique set of problems and risks that are created when product lines are migrated to China. Electronics designed and developed for highly automated Western manufacturing often must be re-engineered and re-tooled for manual or semi-automated China manufacturing. Product design or product development for China manufacturing with SYNOMETRIX eliminates this second product engineering cycle that drives up overall product engineering costs.

Product re-engineering for China manufacturing also creates management and product engineering challenges not easily or cost-effectively overcome, especially when China suppliers must be managed from overseas. Apart from the product engineering for China manufacturing benefits, SYNOMETRIX eliminates the cultural and language differences, difficult communications, and the long distance and costs of travel back and forth to visit and manage suppliers in China with a seamless pull-through from electronics product design through to contract manufacturing in China.

For Western companies without substantial China experience or resources on the ground in China, cost-efficiently sourcing, auditing, qualifying and structuring sustainable relationships with capable suppliers, as well as managing quality and protecting IP, is often a formidable if not impossible task.

The product development and engineering capability gap between Western companies and many China manufacturers adds to these challenges and increases project risks. Different product design and quality standards, as well as weak management responsiveness to schedules and problems often leaves project managers in Western companies fully frustrated. These problems drive up costs, impact negatively on your brand, and create difficulties in your customer relationships.
