Your design is complete, you've received regulatory approval, and the prospective customers have been identified; now getting your product into the field is your highest priority. Listen to the experts on our panel to discover how you can proactively eliminate or significantly reduce costly start-up pitfalls. These are the people who do the work in contract design and manufacturing facilities day-in and day-out. Learn how they help OEMs with their components, subassemblies, and complete devices. Get answers to your specific questions on overcoming design challenges, material selection, documentation requirements, and solid process controls. This discussion is designed to inform and educate you on how to take the risk out of your supply chain by selecting a contract manufacturing partner that understands what it takes to go from prototype to a commercial product.
