New Product Development and Introduction Process Overview Training

New product development and introduction is a major concern of all companies at any time and is especially so for small businesses. There are many real challenges and opportunities today for companies in viable alternative fuels, energy efficient transportation, and in making better use of the resources and equipment that we have, but the path is particularly hazardous today with the increased financial pressures, global market considerations, and off shore manufacturing. The successful development and introduction of the “right” product or service can mean the difference between your company’s continued success and growth and its decline and failure. As always, you must develop the right product or service for your market, get it right the first time, and do it on time and within budget.

The New Product Development and Introduction Process (NPDI) is loosely based on the “Life Cycle” process currently in use in many parts of industry. The NPDI process focuses on the identification, authorization, design, qualification, introduction, and production of new products in an expedited and adequately documented fashion. It helps you to define what is required to get the right product to market at the right price and at the right time and to support it properly throughout the process.  The NPDI Process applies to any product, including software and services, and is easily edited to include the appropriate terminology for these products. Quality Systems Innovations, Inc. offers an overview training course in the New Product Development and Introduction Process.

Course Description

The New Product Development and Introduction Process Overview course helps you to determine what is required to properly develop and introduce new products.  The course covers the six phases of the NPDI process from the initial product idea through product production.  Phase 1 is preparatory and defines how the product is conceived and included in the company’s Product Migration Plan.  Phases 2 through 6 define the development, introduction, and production process for the product.
