New Product Introduction (NPI)

New Product Introduction

Accelerate the Transition of New Products From Prototype to Production

  • Time to value

    Rapidly deploy tailored apps to fit your proposed processes and iterate them for fast improvements

  • Human-centric apps

    Guide operators, reduce mistakes, and error-proof processes with user-friendly interfaces to boost productivity

  • Edge connectivity

    Connect machines and equipment or serialize builds with barcode scanners

  • Iterate as products evolve

    As products are developed, it can be tricky to keep up with changing parts, designs, and processes. No-code apps make it easy to iterate on work instructions as parts change throughout the NPI process.

  • Pivot in the face of supply chain uncertainty

    Supply chain issues is a continuous challenge when introducing a new product or product line. Being able to adapt and adjust a bill of materials in a database quickly ensures that you maintain competitiveness and that the software in your operation doesn’t get in the way of your process.

  • Build production-ready apps to get up and running quickly

    When it’s time to bring your new product into production, getting a new line ready and up to speed can be challenging. Digital work instructions built and tested in the NPI process can be easily repurposed for production – running in hours, not weeks.
