MANUFACTURING-READINESS

Market-Ready Certification Program

PREPARE YOUR PRODUCT FOR MARKET SUCCESS THE FIRST TIME

Know before you build. For new, untested, or complex products, our comprehensive Market-Ready Certification Program answers five core questions critical to worry-free product development and manufacturing.

Can my design be manufactured?

DFM Evaluation

We conduct a Design for Manufacture and Assembly analysis to identify opportunities to modify the product for efficient manufacturability and reduced costs.

Are all parts accounted for?

BOM Review

Our team of engineers and category experts reviews your specs and Bill of Materials (BOM) — the itemized list of all your product components — for completeness, sourcing, regulation requirements, and savings.

Is my packaging market ready?

Packaging Options

We evaluate your packaging design and make recommendations to optimize production, materials, shipping, and market readiness.

How much will it cost?

Estimated Costs

We provide a comprehensive cost of goods estimate that considers all manufacturing costs like materials, labor, customs, freight, etc., plus delivery to your destination of choice.

How long will it take to deliver?

Manufacturing Timetable

We create a manufacturing schedule based all the known factors that will help you set realistic delivery dates for marketing and your customers.

Our skilled designers and engineers in Hong Kong capture your product vision, then produce technically intricate computer-assisted design (CAD) drawings in preparation for prototyping. We analyze, ideate, and value engineer your product before reaching the manufacturing line in order to optimize efficiencies and costs.

Prototypes & Sampling

Throughout the development process, we provide 2D samples, 3D samples, or working prototypes from the actual molds and tooling as needed for your approval before full production starts.

Packaging Design

To win the hearts and minds of customers — and sell more units — any successful product requires great package design. If needed, our team can help direct how your product is packaged, displayed, and delivered.

POP Displays

Many merchandising programs require a point-of-purchase (POP) display. Product Crew can help you design and manufacture (or source) an impactful POP display to give your product a distinct visual personality and engage your target audience.
