New Product Introduction
Introduce your product the right way
New product introduction is the first step in the process of transferring your product design into a full scale manufactured product. The NPI space offers a controlled manufacturing environment to debug and fine tune the manufacturing process. This critical step is a low cost solution to mitigating risk early. Our goal during this time is to successfully test out the manufacturing and assembly processes and strategy before transferring to pilot or contract manufacturing. By fine tuning and optimizing the process at this step we are able to identify and eliminate issues that could arise during lot builds. If you were to skip this critical step and move from DFM/DFA straight into full scale production, you would find yourself spending more time, money, and effort to correct processes and assembly strategies that could have been optimized earlier.
Take control of your new product
Our brand-new controlled manufacturing environment is one of the exciting capabilities now possible through our new facility in Woodbridge, CT. Able to be customized for different production line layouts, we have the perfect space for products starting the journey into full scale manufacturing. Not sure how NPI fits into your project?

Mitigate risk with new product introduction
Once phase 3 of the product development process is complete, your design moves into our new product introduction area for phase 4. Unlike the previous three phases, phase 4 consists mostly of design and documentation activities. If you were to skip or cut out parts of this phase, you would increase your risk of building higher scrap or costly assembly errors that could occur during contract manufacturing. Each step of new product introduction is crucial to ensure you have an end product that you can manufacture using a stable process.
