Presenter:
Tom Comstock, Principal Analyst at LNS Research

New Product Introduction (NPI) is fundamental to most industrial organizations, yet 44% of new product launches fail to meet all or most of their success criteria. We will review LNS Research’s recent findings that clearly show that process challenges – which are surely in the manufacturer’s ability to improve – are the fundamental barriers to success. Thus, solutions are within reach. LNS Research has used extensive survey data and deep engagement with industry leaders to define a 3-step plan for improving NPI by focusing on processes, suppliers and Quality 4.0. The journey leads to significantly better NPI, quality and manufacturing results.

Attendees will learn:

  • The challenges in NPI
  • A 3-step quality program for NPI success
  • The value of supplier quality and quality management in accelerating NPI
  • How institutionalizing and automating quality and supply chain practices improves NPI
  • How improving NPI also drives manufacturing and quality improvements
