NPD | New Product Development
Manufacturing excellence begins in the planning stages, even before production commences.
The company initiates the first phase, new product development (NPD) process in complete coordination with the customer.
Each product undergoes a rigorous design for manufacture (DFM) review, and a pre-process failure mode effect analysis (Pre-PFMEA). A clear process flow diagram (PFD) is provided, where all assembly steps, critical stages and test processes are well defined.
This preliminary stage removes any barriers to achieving manufacturing quality, consistency and repeatability at the initial mass production stage.
