For a growing number of design engineers in manufacturing operations, the usual way of doing things—i.e., the customer designs an injection-molded part, turns it over to a contract manufacturer to produce it, then everybody but the purchasing department promptly forgets about it—doesn’t work anymore.
One of the biggest challenges in any new product development effort is identifying skilled people who can contribute significantly to the project, including the vendors who support the process. Ensuring the success of a new product demands the freedom to use new materials and new suppliers, as complex design and production challenges arise.

No small feat when 28 different plastic parts are required.
