The gross margins generated from revenues is very high and typically ranges anywhere from 90% to 95% depending on whether or not bad debt expense is considered part of the cost of goods sold. Other expenses that can be considered part of the cost of good sold often include travel as well as the production of specific reporting activities.

A quality control consultant SWOT analysis is frequently developed in order to determine the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats faced by these businesses on an ongoing basis.

The startup costs are considered to be relatively low in the barriers to entry are considered to be moderately high.

For weaknesses, there is a significant amount of liability associated with managing a quality control department. Errors in procedures relating to manufacturing can have disastrous results for clients. As such, many of these businesses maintain expensive insurance policies in the event that a mistake is made. Depending on the number of staff hired, these businesses can have somewhat high operating expenses.

For opportunities, these businesses can expand by simply hiring additional quality control consultants that can manage contractual obligations with additional clients. Additionally, specialty engineers can be hired on an ongoing basis to assist clients with managing certain development projects as well as with the development of new products. Quality control not only applies specifically to an ongoing operation, but also during the planning phase of a new product launch. These services can substantially boost the revenues of the company.

Although there are some risks relating to liability for rendering the services, these risks can be mitigated. Depending on the industry’s targeted, a quality-control consulting can work with companies that are always good to find a market from their products and are going to require quality control at all times.

A quality control consultant business plan also needs to be developed especially if the entrepreneur is looking to raise capital. This business plan should feature a three year profit and loss statement, cash flow analysis, balance sheet, breakeven analysis, and business ratios page. A demographic analysis as well as a competitive analysis should be included within the business plan as well. As it relates to demographics, the entrepreneur should discuss how they intend to target manufacturing businesses, medical device companies, specialized service companies, and other businesses in which quality control is an ongoing issue. This includes taking a look at annual revenues, annual profits, types of items produced, and the risk associated with not having good quality control procedures on hand. A competitive analysis is frequently included as well although this can be done somewhat on a more minimal basis given that there are several thousands of quality control consultants that operate on a national level.

A quality-control consultant marketing plan should also be developed in order to ensure that the business can very quickly find a client base at the onset of operations. A vast majority of the companies that engage in quality control consultants already have established relationships with engineering firms, product development firms, and other entities in which quality control is required on an ongoing basis. As such, the entrepreneur can develop ongoing relationships with their existing this the contacts while concurrently spreading the word regarding the fact they have launched their own firm. Many quality control consultants will frequently become members of popular engineering organizations as well as manufacturing organizations. One of the ways of these businesses can very quickly develop a client bases by attending expos and fairs that are specific to manufacturing companies.

A quality control consultant website should also be developed in order to showcase the services rendered, industries covered, biographies of staff consultants and the founder, and all relevant contact information. Many of these businesses will frequently write large-scale articles on an ongoing basis in order to further solidify the reputation of the business through their website. A presence on social media is important especially for platforms that are geared towards business communities like LinkedIn. The ongoing marketing required by these businesses is somewhat limited once they establish their initial client base given the fact that most contracts for quality control consultants are done on an ongoing basis. It is very unusual for a company to switch their service provider and less there is a substantial decline in the amount of money they can spend on quality control and quality assurance.

For an engineer or highly seasoned quality control professional, the ownership of this type of business can be highly lucrative. There is always going to be an ongoing need among major companies as well as small businesses for procedures and protocols that reduce the risks associated with the production of new products. If the entrepreneur is able to target highly specific industries that are immune from negative changes in the economy, then this business can be highly stable in any economic climate.
