New Product Introduction for PCB Assembly

Concept and Design Complete

Once a customer of Cogent Technology has proven their initial design, using Cogent’s Fast-Track service level, the next essential stage on the road to product manufacture is fulfilled by our NPI Service Level.

The New Product Introduction phase is the moment to hone a product to ensure it meets the repeatability and reliability required to be a commercial success.

With these demands in mind Cogent Technology bring to the table expertise to perform Process Failure Mode Effects Analysis (PFMEA) and advice on Design for Manufacture (DFM) before creating carefully documented process flows with the aim of averting risk within the process of PCB manufacture.

NPI Process

Cogent Technology leave nothing to chance on NPI and have a dedicated NPI Hot House Planning Session. This is a multi disciplinary team represented by Planning, Sales, Engineering, Department Heads and the shop floor NPI Controllers. Progress thereafter is reported to the account manager servicing your needs via a weekly risk review meeting and customer based reviews.

Working with our customers we will develop test strategies aimed at proving process controls are in check and to capture any deviation from specification.

The final output of the NPI process not just a pre-preproduction batch of product ready for field trial or customer evaluation but a well-documented product pack ready for series production.
