At Sourceworxs, we’re actually a bunch of qualified engineers and technical types who have decided to become procurement specialists. This means that we can also draft up your drawings in CAD or Solidworks and ensure that this is interpreted correctly by the selected manufacturer.

Most of our team members are at the very least bi-lingual – which helps a lot in ensuring that nothing gets lost in translation. Nothing beats a CAD drawing which has instructional notes (blow-by-blow) in in Chinese, Indonesian or Tamil.

It’s also not difficult to have a “walk through, talk through” with manufacturers on what these expectations are. It’s a common practice we do – which we have found to have significantly improved outcomes.

Having follow up checks – both announed and unannounced forms a critical aspect to ensure that products are fabricated in compliance to the drawings.
