The drive to get commercial and industrial products to market faster than competitors is an ever-increasing challenge. That's why a seamless transition from design to manufacturing is critical: to prevent production headaches that may hamper success later on. In our white paper, "Smoothing the Transition from Design to Manufacture: Best Practices," we show you eight best practices for a trouble-free design to-manufacturing hand-off, and offer details on:
-How to factor the complexity of the assembly process early on
-Making cost-effective material sourcing decisions
-Environmental tests that may be required before you go to market
