To out-source or not out-source?

Just Electronics explains how its flexible, small to medium batch manufacturing services offer answers to original equipment manufacturers’ production needs

When it comes to getting your product made, out-sourcing to contract manufacturers can remove some of the headache but also poses a number of problems of its own.

How many do you need and how fast? Is the design ready for full production? Do you have some in-house capability, so only need certain stages done? Is the product aimed at a niche market and will only ever be made in small batches?

Some of these questions make it difficult to choose whether to out-source and, if so, which contract manufacturer to use. Just Electronics specialises in smaller and medium batch sizes, and in doing any or all the process stage customers need to complement any in- house manufacturing and existing suppliers.
