Top tips for improving engineer-manufacturer collaboration

Top tips for better engineering - manufacturing collaboration.

Imagine you’re an engineer with a groundbreaking idea, but the manufacturer just doesn’t get it. Or perhaps you’re a manufacturer frustrated with unrealistic design demands. 

These aren’t just hypotheticals; they’re everyday realities in the industry. 

Engineers dream big, with innovations that could change the world. Manufacturers bring these dreams down to earth, facing the realities of materials, costs, and time constraints. 

But here’s the thing – they often speak different languages, leading to misunderstandings, delays, and compromised designs. Recognizing these challenges is the first step to overcoming them.

In a recent webinar, industry experts William Burke from Five Flute, Oleg Shilovitsky from OpenBOM, and Adar Hay from Jiga explored the dynamic relationship between engineers and manufacturers.

You’re not just going to hear experts talk; you’ll walk away with actionable strategies from choosing suppliers and preparing designs to communicating with manufacturers and setting them up for success.
