In the world of micro molding, where precision and efficiency are paramount, the concept of boomerang projects can present significant challenges for both customers and micro molders.
Traditionally, boomerang projects in this context refer to situations where a customer's project returns to the micro molding company for rework or modifications. These projects "boomerang" back to the manufacturer due to various reasons, such as design changes, quality issues, or unforeseen challenges during the manufacturing process. Instead of progressing smoothly from concept to completion, these projects require additional attention and adjustments before they can be finalized.
However, in our experience at Accumold, it is projects undertaken by alternative micro molders that end up boomeranging back to us, as customers seek an expert organization that can dig their project out of a hole, a hole that their originally selected micro molder does not have the wherewithal to extricate themselves from.
This can be extremely costly for the micro molding customer, but I am happy to give you a road map which will detail your route to market avoiding elephant traps along the way.
