Turning an idea into a product usually involves multiple factories. SinoSpec completes comprehensive, on site reviews and works closely with selected factories to develop Build of Material (BOM) guidelines. The BOM helps clarify tooling costs, unit pricing and Minimum Order Requirements which lead to final budgets. After budget approval, tooling and packaging design begins. T1 or first shot samples lead to tooling modification and polishing. T2 and T3 samples are produced, as needed. A limited edition "pilot run" helps eliminate any remaining issues and is the first actual production. Pending market testing and approval, full production is ready to commence. Throughout the development process, the supply chain is analyzed, QA monitoring points identified and a complete QA protocol established.
Sinospec builds ideas. Winning ideas must pass key points for development consideration:
COMPELLING MARKET OPPORTUNITY
HIGHLY DIFFERENTIATED DESIGN CONCEPT
FEASIBLE PRODUCTION PARAMETERS
If all indicators point to Go, SinoSpec creates conceptual 3D CAD drawings. Design elements may include: Industrial Design, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Optical Engineering, PCB Layout, Software, Firmware, Apps, Tooling and Packaging. Depending on project complexity, diverse resources can be pooled for specific strengths. Multiple review stages ensure that finished designs meet stringent standards. When drawings are complete, prototyping begins. Relating drawings to actual products can be difficult and prototypes help resolve final design questions. Often 2 or 3 prototypes are created before final design is approved.
Deliver means carry through on commitments in a timely manner. The Deliver phase also covers completion of all required documents and certifications in addition to final QC inspections. Acceptance Quality Level (AQL) standards are applied to final QC including a full range of functions, environmental and drop testing, packaging, UPC scan and more. Export Documentation, Air/Ocean Forwarding, Foreign Trade Zone and other logistics support is available to help move finished products to global destinations.
