New Product Introduction

New Product Introduction (NPI)

A crucial time for any product development cycle is the transition from product design to manufacturing. The New Product Introduction (NPI) phase requires key elements of the design to be matured and finalized so that all deliverables are ready to be released to manufacturing. D&K Engineering’s Total Commercialization Solutions process is unique in that it fully drives a seamless, transparent transition from R&D to manufacturing. Precisely defined deliverables for each function at each phase of the program are validated before a product moves to the next phase.

Precisely defined deliverables for each function at each phase of the program are validated before a product moves to the next phase. Some of these key deliverables include:

Some of these key deliverables include: Beta design and build verification cycles

  • Beta design and build verification cycles. Supply chain readiness for production
  • Supply chain readiness for production
  • Configuration control formalized. Finalize manufacturing plan, work instructions and quality plan
  • Finalize manufacturing plan, work instructions and quality plan. Complete costed BOM and total manufacturing costs
  • Complete costed BOM and total manufacturing costs. Complete pilot production runs
  • Complete pilot production runs. Release to manufacturing after verification processes

Release to manufacturing after verification processes complete. A detailed deliverables by phase process called the D&K Engineering L-PRP is used through the entire development and manufacturing process. This is Total Commercialization Solutions! No barriers, no walls, just seamless execution at the highest level of quality at every step.
