Before a manufacturing process goes into implementation, a project proposal is put forth so that the pros and cons of the project can be determined and be dealt with accordingly.
A project proposal includes the details of a product line involving use of specific material and process technology combinations.
A project proposal enumerates the following:
- Advantages of the product or process to the end customer
- Project goals
- Project specifications which are tied to the project goals and the compatibility between the specification and the available materials.
- Time schedule depicting weekly progress and workflow
- Cost analysis
