2. Budgeting, pricing, and timeline
Before we proceed with the production of custom metal fabrication, we must agree on the budget for the sheet metal fabrication process. We will produce a quotation with a breakdown of the requirements. We will also look at the final pricing, prototypes, design involvement, and development. Additionally, pricing for design input, prototypes, and batch quantities will be agreed upon before the start of the production.
To set the expectations for delivery, we will generate a timeline that includes the submission of quotes, design input, manufacturing of prototypes, and batch delivery. The project must be deemed within our capability and the budgets and timescales agreed upon for milestones like quoting, prototyping, designing, and manufacturing – only then we can proceed.
