Best practices for New Product Introduction process have been in existence for nearly 3 decades now. Since inception a number of organisations have adopted these best practices to launch successful new products. Adopting best practices in new product introduction within supply chain provides confidence for the customer to partner on new programme developments and in turn provides growth opportunities for an organisation.

Industry Forum has developed an effectiveness assessment for new product launch. The assessment combines the current state process mapping approach following Lean principles and a technical assessment considering the best practice criteria to launch new products. A facilitated approach is taken to build consensus in the team on how far the best practice needs to be implemented considering the needs of business.
The assessment process covers:
NPI technical assessment is completed in 3 days for a built to print organisation.
