In anticipation of Halloween, I decided to build a robot to hand out candy. It was great to take a break from thinking about manufacturing in high-volume and focus on just getting one prototype to work.
During this process, I was reminded of how different the considerations are when you’re going “Zero-to-One” (Z2O) vs. “One-To-Many” (O2M).
Here are some key points to know when you're going from “Zero-to-One” (Z2O):
Once you have a working prototype, you’ll be able to create a Bill of Materials (BOM) and CAD Files. With these files, you can move onto the next phase: New Product Introduction (NPI) where you’ll move another step closer towards manufacturing and going to “One-To-Many” (O2M).
