Formal NPI Process

PCB Assembly:

Formal New Product Introduction (NPI) Process

Our formal process for New Product Introduction guarantees prompt service and valuable feedback. We ensure that we have all the inputs and track each step as outlined below.

More importantly we will produce a Design for Manufacturing (DFM) report and hold a formal review with you to ensure manufacturability. By doing so, potential production problems may be addressed during the design stage. Additionally, recommendations for improving on the cost of the fabrication will be suggested when possible.

So before production even begins, CEM becomes a vested partner in your success and is prepared to move forward when you need production quantities.
