We can help you bring a new product from initial concept to mass production.
New product introduction (NPI) is the step-by-step process that takes an idea from concept through detailed design, prototyping and manufacturing scale-up, into volume production.
NPI is widely used across many high value manufacturing sectors, particularly in mass production. We specialise in products for nuclear and other quality-critical sectors.
An NPI study can add value if:
- You are in the early stages of developing a new component, system or sub-system, and require guidance on best practice.
- You have won a new manufacturing contract and want to ramp up production in a controlled manner.
- We review your organisational requirements as a designer or a manufacturer to understand your role in the NPI process.
- We work with you to understand and deliver the required outputs. We typically use advanced process and quality planning (APQP) and production part approval process (PPAP) to guide our analysis.
- We present our findings with conclusions, underpinning evidence and recommendations.
An NPI study can help you:
- Bring your products to market faster.
- Enhance your product quality.
- Improve manufacturing efficiency.
