New Product Introduction (NPI)
The process development team has, first and foremost, in-depth expertise in launching customer projects. They can draw on many years of broad experience in production processes such as injection-moulding, punching, turning, milling, tool and jig making, electronics production, winding and diverse assembly methods, which are all necessary for electronic and mechatronic products. All complemented by the work of our cost estimators and advance quality planning and quality assurance.
In projects, NPI takes responsibility right from the start, upon receiving a customer enquiry. That responsibility continues through all prototyping stages right up to dependable serial production. During process development, NPI advises developers and designers regarding costs-optimised designs matched to production requirements, assists the purchasing department when selecting suppliers, prepares the process workflows required, initiates and moderates the process FMEA and ensures all results really help to configure the process. The team chooses the systems and equipment required and designs new workplaces and production lines. NPI can also draw up rationalisation, process optimisation and capacity expansion concepts for serial products, manage the associated project work, supply data for profitability calculations, select suppliers for plants and systems and coordinate the implementation and approval cycles right up until a series goes into production.
