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.
Using case study examples, you will examine where the process can go wrong and assess the implications of failing to meet customers’ expectations.
Upon completion, delegates will be equipped to implement practical improvements that are relevant to their own organisation to bring new products to market on time, at cost and to the required quality standard.
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 involved.
