MUTRACX ON NPI
In a competence meeting on 15th of April 2014 TMC NPI invited the company Mutracx to share their insights about the introduction of new products (NPI).
Mutracx is an Océ spin off. Their primary focus is to revolutionize the PCB inner layer production market. Mutracx will produce the first fully digital inner layer printer based on inkjet technology. Their machine is called Lunaris. Mutracx was represented by Sjaak Janssen (COO), Martien Tönnissen (Production Manager) and Geert Janssen (Outbound Quality Manager), all former Océ professionals.
We had an interactive session with about 15 NPI professionals sharing ideas about NPI, such as:
New Product Introduction in relation to R&D;
New Production Installation (how to define a production plan, people, logistics, processes, equipment, etc) in relation to Manufacturing;
New Product Installation in relation to Sales & Service.
In additon we discussed the best ways to set up the supply chain for the outsourcing of strategic parts.
We ended with a beer at the TMC Bar: the best place to meet each other in an informal environment and share further ideas.
