How Mystification Can Cause Rework

Avoid mystification and go with a manufacturer who takes the time to examine your project closely. A good price is important, but getting a much lower bid from a manufacturer might indicate they don’t fully understand the specs and scope of your project. Not taking the time to understand the requirements of your project can lead to miscommunication or mutual mystification and, inevitably, problems which could’ve been avoided.

These problems include having to do rework until the manufacturer finally gets it right. From poor quality products to the finished product being completely different from what you had envisioned, there are a wide range of problems a manufacturer can encounter that will warrant rework. This rework not only disturbs timelines, it also greatly affects the company’s bottom-line. 

At KEP our goal is to avoid this hassle and provide quality products for our customers, the first time. We call it our upfront contract. Our experts at KEP meet with our customers to ask questions about their demands for the product, uncover pains, request details that represent the priorities that are important to all the major stakeholders, and formulate a plan that meets their exacting specifications. Then we get to work on creating a prototype and, finally, start with the manufacturing process. Have a challenge? Ask KEP!
