Bhai ,if the manufacturer had the required expertise how can they overestimate their capability. They must have an idea about the time required for an idea to become a design and then a marketable product. The only other reason can be that they were not dedicated to their job.No, the Indian manufacturer had the required expertise and experience. They had been in this business for decades. They just overestimate their capability of meeting the deadline.
Well, that is always the question: how much more research required on the design? Can you give a relatively precise estimation?
One of the major issues we have with Indian engineers or manufacturer is: they are always terribly optimistic about their products or projects. Long time delay seems be part of their work. They think it is not a big deal, but it is serious problem to us and our clients. When you ask for patience, you are actually asking for a big amount of money. Today is a globalisation era, you think you have some good idea or design, there are lots of people are working on the similar design or idea. If you can't put your product into market before them, you are wasting all your investors' money. You failed deadline once, no one trust you anymore. Investors will only be less patient to you next time.
Time is money, patience is also money.
I agree that time is money . When I speak about patience it doesn't means wasting time but better to bring out a good product rather than one with multiple complains which again is bad for Goodwill.
In today's world no one can expect to delay projects ,and still remain in the race. Indian manufacturers had this laid back attitude that's why we fell behind in manufacturing.
