Prototype to Factory is a pivotal phase of product development. A positive working relationship with your chosen manufacturer is the foundation to a long and successful brand.
So your dream really does need to shape up to achieve commercial success or it simply won’t be ready for manufacture!
Do you have your first samples but when you reached out to a factory they never responded?
Or maybe you have received prices for your garments from a factory but they were so expensive you nearly fell off your chair!
Believe me, I have firsthand experience of this frustration and the anxiety it induces!
How Prototype to Factory will push past this
In order to dispel these worries we will open with a 1½ hour meeting in person or via zoom (dependent on location) to make a full appraisal of your range so far.
We can discuss any areas you are concerned with. Then together we will identify specific aspects that need more attention.
As a result we will be able to tailor an action plan precisely for you and keep your prototypes on track.
The six month plan to factory fitness will also cover:
- Preparation of factory ready paper work
- Sourcing and how to work with factories
- Consolidating Bill of Materials or BOM’s
- Assembly of Technical Packs
- Understanding garment prices
- Introduction to a critical path
Steering your prototypes through the factory door
Following our initial meeting I will support you with a 1 hour monthly zoom chat or call. Along with this, e-mail support will be available once a week for any questions or queries that arise in-between.
I will guide you on every step and provide you with the necessary materials so you are able to make every garment factory ready this time and for future seasons to come.
