New Product Launch—One of the Keys to Our Success
Producing new CNC components goes well beyond “just cutting chips”. One of the challenges in our aerospace/defense/space business is being able to efficiently integrate new line items/products into our production schedule without disrupting our existing book of business.
During the past five years, Intrex Aerospace has successfully launched over 1,000 CNC machined parts into our system. Our launch process involves various technologies to ensure we are making a quality part to print every single time.
The ability to efficiently and successfully manage a new product launch is one of our key core strengths. We have developed a new product launch system that links specific task management for all employees involved in the launch process. We monitor and measure in real time. We always know where we are in the process.
In our system, there are multiple steps required to successfully launch a part.
Steps Required in Launch Process
- Team review of drawing, specs, issues
- Engineering review for configuration management
- Quality confirmation of configuration management and specification review
- Quality confirmation of inspection tool availability
- Development of program and tooling needed for each operation
- Development of inspection plan
- Release to the production floor
- Evaluate first-run data
The success of our launch process is proven in our metrics and customer satisfaction. Our intent is always to exceed our customers’ expectations. We could never accomplish this without our strong system and an excellent team to support these efforts.
Whether you have a new product development project or a resourcing activity, we are a company you can count on to be sure you meet your deliverables. Contact Intrex Aerospace today to learn more.
