2 UTSA Colleges of Business and Engineering TAKE YOUR TECHNOLOGY TO THE LIMIT! CITE BootCamp January Manufacturing Cost Considerations 1: Show that you know what you are talking about 2: Show you did your research 3: Allows realistic projections The Pitch to Investors

3 UTSA Colleges of Business and Engineering TAKE YOUR TECHNOLOGY TO THE LIMIT! CITE BootCamp January Manufacturing Cost Considerations Profit = Sale Price – Costs to Produce Truly a Simple Concept that applies to everything from Pet Rocks to radioisotopes for chemotherapy A “realistic” sale price is ALWAYS what the market will bear

4 UTSA Colleges of Business and Engineering TAKE YOUR TECHNOLOGY TO THE LIMIT! CITE BootCamp January Manufacturing Cost Considerations Tooling Considerations: Lithographic: Tooling can last for life of production, changes relatively affordable: micromachining of stints Molding/Casting: Tooling has limited lifespan, changes can be expensive: CPAP, Backboard Lifespan of tooling depends on process 1 st Article Costs: Engineering/Labor/Testing Production is not Prototyping, some processes do not scale

5 UTSA Colleges of Business and Engineering TAKE YOUR TECHNOLOGY TO THE LIMIT! Manufacturing Cost Considerations CITE BootCamp January Injection Molding Usually contracted out Assembly concerns

9 UTSA Colleges of Business and Engineering TAKE YOUR TECHNOLOGY TO THE LIMIT! Manufacturing Cost Considerations CITE BootCamp January Compliance: Depends on …… Certification of incoming materials Certification of contracted suppliers Certification of final product Documentation Costs

10 UTSA Colleges of Business and Engineering TAKE YOUR TECHNOLOGY TO THE LIMIT! Manufacturing Cost Considerations CITE BootCamp January Manufacturing Medical Devices…. Commercial distribution of medical devices requires compliance with FDA rules. Involves listing product with the FDA and documentation of compliance with “Good Manufacturing Practices” as listed in the Code of Federal Regulations, among other requirements. nce/PostmarketRequirements/QualitySystemsRegulations/defaul t.htm#applicabilityhttp://www.fda.gov/MedicalDevices/DeviceRegulationandGuida nce/PostmarketRequirements/QualitySystemsRegulations/defaul t.htm#applicability (Overview )

11 UTSA Colleges of Business and Engineering TAKE YOUR TECHNOLOGY TO THE LIMIT! Manufacturing Cost Considerations CITE BootCamp January ISO Certification ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 27001,….. More costs More required documentation
