RAMSEY, N.J., Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- An interactive panel at the Fourth Annual Medical Product Outsourcing (MPO) Symposium will debate the concept and practice of transparency in the outsourcing relationship with its "open-book pricing" roundtable discussion scheduled for Nov. 3.

"Medical device manufacturers are trying to limit cost by requiring suppliers to show all of their cards," said Marcia Weinstein, director of marketing at Arc-Tronics. "The debate centers on how open and transparent communications should be in order to forge a strong and long-lasting partnership."

"The Open-Book Pricing Debate: An Interactive Roundtable Discussion" features a panel of key decision makers from OEMs and contract manufacturers to discuss whether an open-book pricing process is effective in maintaining a successful outsourcing relationship.

Along with audience participation, panelists will discuss:

  • How an open-book approach effects long-term performance
  • How the strain of sharing your profit margin with your customer
  • Whether total transparency helps to communicate the cost intricacies of the job?
  • Does quality of service take a back seat for the lowest bid?
  • And much more ...
