Summary

Intended for engineers involved at any stage of the product development process, we have designed this course to improve your ability to bring new products to market on time, on-budget, to the desired quality and environmental standards.

Using examples and cases studies from a range of organisations, delegates will examine both where the process can go wrong with implications on failing to meet both customers’ and business internal expectations.  By applying the principles of high performing organisations, engineers can transform the way products are conceived, designed, developed, launched into production and serviced into the customer base.

Upon completion, delegates will be equipped to identify and implement practical improvements that are relevant to their own organisation and their respective supply chains.

The course outlines both the concepts and structures needed for successful new product introduction, together with the need to establish productive, collaborative relationships between all of the functions and partners involved.
