NPI & Lifecycle Management
All manufacturing businesses undertake some form of New Product Introduction, and have a level of lifecycle management, some go farther and also manage design and development.
This Theme provides companies with the tools and processes to enable efficient, and trouble free cross departmental management of Projects, Programmes and Lifecycle Management. It includes reviews of tolerancing, gated management systems, and the quality core tools for product launch. Further it links to strategy, design and development and eventual phase out and support processes to maintain a strong steady state of the management process until product closure in the service stage of the product lifecycle.
