The Transition Period

Once the decision has been made to outsource and the contract is signed, the next step is the transition of production from the existing location to CaliBaja. This is the most complicated step in the outsourcing process and depending on the complexity of the operation, may require a significant dedication of resources from both ends:

  • Inventory needs to be built to cover demand during the downtime associated with the transfer
  • The new workforce must be trained and certified
  • The supply chain needs to be redirected to the new location
  • All equipment and tooling must be setup and calibrated
  • Any requisite facility improvements must be completed
