Our process to bring a prototype to a reproducible product

The New Product Introduction (NPI) process is the step between both design and manufacturing worlds. After some trial production rounds to optimize the manufacturing process, the NPI stage ends with a first working prototype becoming a reproducible final product. Our engineers will manage the walk through the NPI stage with an accurate project management.

A design that has been conceived without the manufacturing process in mind can be very difficult to handle in the shop floor.
During the NPI process our engineers will cooperate closely with the factory operators to ensure a fast diagnose and a quick response to the production problems arised.

NPI Round 1 50-100 units NPI Round 2 50-100 units NPI Round 3 500 -1000 units Data Input DME DFx Panel Definition Data Out Process Definition Tool Test Focus on Process Tools Focus on Increase Yield Focus on Monitor Yield Product Redesign
We typicaly use 3 trial production iterations within the NPI step. After each one the process engineers can be progressively pulled out from the production line, meaning that the prototype will be closer to become a reproducible final product.

DFM (Design For Manufacturing) analysis prior to manufacturing process can make the NPI stage easier, because issues that can affect manufacturability, cost and schedule, can be fixed.
