A request-for-quotation form is an efficient way to develop component requirements and guarantee that you included everything. It helps you consider technical, quality, quantity and schedule factors, important information to give to the supplier. Plus, it delivers this information in a clear and concise form that saves time and effort on both ends.
For custom manufactured parts, suppliers typically need to know:
–Date that you need quotation from supplier.
–Part number, name, and drawing revision.
–Supply the 3D CAD model if available.
–The 3D CAD model enables the supplier to estimate part weight and helps clarify part features that are difficult to describe and interpret on a 2D drawing.
–Supply the 2D drawing to communicate tolerances, threads, and features not described in the 3D CAD model.
–Standards and any other documents referenced on the 2D drawing.
–Quantity of parts required, including batch sizes with target need dates.
–Quality Assurance Requirements.
–Raw material specification.
–Shipping requirements and cost responsibility.
–Contact information for technical and commercial questions that may arise during the quotation process.
—Cost and impact of potential quality assessment (rejection or delays, rework, and so on).
–Terms and Conditions associated with a purchase order.
