Manufacturing Cycles and the Buyer Manufacturer Relationship – Part 2

Continued From Part 1

A complimentary buyer-manufacturer relationship is not only beneficial in terms of improving output. But also when considering the progression of research and development.

Buyers and manufacturers that are both equally and independently involved in developing their research and development faculties, will gain the ability to compliment each other in their gains in this area.

It makes logical sense that two companies that are both investing in research resources will be able to produce results in these fields at twice the rate.

There is an issue concerning this dynamic; That there needs to be an element of transparency between the buyer and manufacturer who are pooling their research resources together. However, if the two companies are able to come to some kind of contractual understanding, they will garner all of the benefits of a greatly enhanced research process as well as a deeper business relationship as a whole.
