What's the price? Sometimes this question equals more than just cost to make the purchase.
If the product fails too frequently, what's the cost to productivity? If a product fails in production, what's the cost of downtime? If you disappoint your customer, what's the cost of losing them? There are many options to consider when selecting a product, and a supply partner.
Pricing. Quality. Turnaround time.
While some suppliers promise their low-cost product is a direct equivalent, there is a price to be paid if the product fails to perform once it's in use, and it's not reflected in the purchase price. Damage to equipment, missed production windows, and losing a customer because they are dissatisfied… these costs are far more expensive than the short term gain from a low price.
