How to become a supply chain compatible maker

1,106

Published on

There is huge gap between demand driven maker business and supply driven consumer electronics industry, but a successful bond could unleash the great potentiality of both. Let’s review the pain on both sides and propose routes overcoming the gap.
How Shanzhai industry has evolved greatly serving developing countries/regions, but suffering from excess manufacturing power.
How Maker Business leads the trend and occupying niche markets, but blamed for delay and compromises.
There is great similarity between turnkey platform and open hardware, evolving from prototypes to productions should not be so hard with several efforts properly done: shared parts selection, mechanic design from template, community based DFX, and adequate communication/respect.
