Those who are serious about their inventions and prototypes need to look further into their product than the creation of the product itself. Inventors need to take a serious look at the manufacturing process that will help to build the product should it go into production. There are multiple aspects of electronic product manufacture for inventors to consider. These critical factors will completely affect how much the product costs and how many products can be made in one day. Inventors need to consider the manufacturing process as a whole, including materials, labor, and the actual actions that will build the product. Inventors are very close to the prototypes they have created. Many of these inventors fail to realize that some aspects, in terms of both function and material, may have to change. Certain aspects of the prototype may simply not be able to be duplicated within the confines of mass manufacturing. Inventors need to be adaptable, willing to make the changes necessary to see success. Inventors may be experts in their field, but may still fail to understand how a manufacturing process works. Inventors should work with professionals to set up the manufacturing process. These professionals will help to design and engineer the process that will create the product. It takes time and effort to be able to get a prototype into a manufacturing process. Inventors and manufacturers are going to need to work together to complete a process that will do more than just build the prototype – it must be cost effective and time effective. Failure to focus on the critical factors, adaptability, and manufacturer relationship will keep a product from seeing mass production.
