One of the most challenging aspects of the outsourcing process can be project transition: moving an existing project from one facility to another. In some cases, this is a move from the OEM customer’s facility and in other cases it may be a move from one contract manufacturer to another.

  • Issue identification
  • Forecasting
  • Production efficiency
  • Project scope.
