Drastically Reduce New Product Integration (NPI) Time: Step 4 of 5
Complete and accurate data is crucial to minimizing thru-put time. Affording your manufacturer with quality information to quote and run production will reduce or eliminate delays. Seems simple however more than half of all prototype orders have incorrect, inconstant, or missing information.
