New product development strategies to ensure shortest schedules, the best profits and the least problems along the way.
From concept to cash flow, a methodology is used to guide activities and to ensure that the development and eventual production of a product, or a line of products, proceeds in an orderly, systematic fashion.
Document-driven design & development: the essential ingredient of any product development methodology is the management and control of communication of information from phase to phase and from activity to activity. The incorporation of the principles set out by the new product development (NPD) process will alleviate, protracted development, post-production design changes, product recalls and delayed introduction into the market.
Key take-aways include:
- The NPD process ensures proper direction of required product development activities.
