So now you know what you need to consider before even approaching an OEM manufacturer. Next is how do you know which potential company will make the whole purpose worthwhile. Here are some things to look out for when looking for a quality OEM manufacturer.
1. Quality Assurance
The prospective OEM company should be registered with the Companies Commission of Malay or SSM in Malaysia. SSM stands for Suruhanjaya Syarikat Malaysia and ia statutory body that regulates companies and businesses.
Other certification OEM manufacturers may have to ensure quality assurance depending on their production line(s) are:
- HACCP – Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point is a
- cGMP – Standing for Good Manufacturing Practice,
- MS ISO 9001: 2015 – Quality Management Systems
- MS ISO 22000: 2012 – Food Safety Management Systems (FSMS)
- MS 1500: 2009 – Halal Food
2. Experience & Knowledge
Is this your first time making a product? Then this is where the experience and knowledge of your OEM partner comes in. Their capabilities and expertise can guide you through the best way to bring the product in your mind to life.
No matter how much you plan, unexpected challenges and delays still arise during the manufacturing process. Your original idea, product and/or desired features may also need to evolve along with the manufacturing process. An excellent manufacturing partner will be able to tackle these challenges with you and use their expertise to offer effective solutions so your product remains as close to your vision as possible/
Nurturing an open and lasting relationship with your OEM manufacturer can help ease issues and put you on the right track to bringing your idea to life.
Without good communication your product won’t come to life as you imagined it, regardless of how good your OEM manufacturer is. When working with another business its easy for things to be miscommunicated and for things to not go according to plan.
Good communication is essential for your plan to be executed on time and to stay in the loop at ever stage from product design to manufacturing process. The right partner will understand your vision, business, industry and customers and use their insight to elevate your idea and product.
On top of this, your partner should be easy to contact, responsive to your concerns, willing to collaborate should any challenges arise and be able to give you constructive feedback.
