Ensuring the Quality of Your Product Before Launching It

Who should attend?
Business executives who seek to source a product overseas or domestically: wholesalers needing to produce, manage and sell inventory, as well as retailers who need to procure, merchandise and manage inventory


Product sourcing and supply management are the riskiest parts of product development. The various operational stages involved in bringing a product from product design to point of sale are crucial.

This workshop covers the supply chain issues that must be addressed before launching a new product. Depending on the product and where it is produced, these may include manufacturing/production, packaging and labelling, shipping, customs service, warehousing, inventory control and re-shipping. 

At the end of the workshop, you will be able to:

  • Define basic sourcing and supply management terms based on a comprehensive glossary
  • List criteria for selecting a factory or source
  • Outline the product development and quality assurance processes needed to bring a successful product to launch
  • Summarize the key factors to communicate to sources/manufacturers in producing the product
  • Describe the six steps to inventory management and process for moving products from factory to destination
  • Identify strategic alliances needed for an efficient supply chain
  • Discuss the four criteria for effective customer service
