Practical insight into sheet metal fabrication processes, introduction of custom sheet metal part production projects for industrial engineers and purchasers
When we take a closer look at the total cost of a sheet metal fabrication project, there are several factors to be considered, which affect the cost structure, thus the final price too.
While the below list is quite comprehensive, there might be, in some cases, other factors to be considered during the quotation process.
The request for quote (RFQ) is the key element to the supplier selection process. Who will be the winning supplier? That is decided by the purchasing department based on the answers given to the RFQ. Therefore it does matter what kind of information we ask and receive in order to create an accurate and competitive offer and to avoid any future misunderstandings and problems during production.
