Creating Innovative Solutions To Meet The Needs Of Our Ever Changing World
Innovation can be defined simply as a "new idea, device or method. However, innovation is often also viewed as the application of better solutions that meet new requirements, unarticulated needs, or existing market needs.
This is accomplished through more effective products, processes, services, technologies, or business models. The term "innovation" can be defined as something original and more effective and, as a consequence, new, that "breaks into" the market or society. It is related to, but not the same as, invention.
Manufacturing is the production of merchandise for use or sale using labor and machines, tools, chemical and biological processing, or formulation. The term may refer to a range of human activity, from handicraft to high tech, but is most commonly applied to industrial production, in which raw materials are transformed into finished goods on a large scale.
Manufacturing engineering or manufacturing process are the steps through which raw materials are transformed into a final product. The manufacturing process begins with the product design, and materials specification from which the product is made. These materials are then modified through manufacturing processes to become the required part.
Training is teaching, or developing in oneself or others, any skills and knowledge that relate to specific useful competencies. Training has specific goals of improving one's capability, capacity, productivity and performance. In addition to the basic training required for a trade, occupation or profession, observers of the labor-market recognize as of 2008 the need to continue training beyond initial qualifications: to maintain, upgrade and update skills throughout working life. People within many professions and occupations may refer to this sort of training as professional development.
The product development process typically consists of several activities that companies employ in the complex process of delivering new products to the market. A process management approach is used to provide a structure for NPD consistency and to enable continuous improvement. Every new product will pass through a series of stages from idea creation through design, manufacturing and market introduction. In highly engineered products (aircraft, automotive, machinery) that deals with complex assemblies the NPD process passes through phases, milestones and deliverable management requiring an equally complex organizational system to manage the process. The more complex the product the more complex the NPD process and management system. The process for managing large sale complex engineering products is much slower (10x) than that deployed for fast moving consumer goods (weeks).
The product development process basically has four main phases:
Fuzzy front-end (FFE) is the set of activities employed before the formal and well defined requirements specification is completed. Requirements are a high-level view of what the product should do to meet the perceived market or business need.
Product design is the development of both the high-level and detailed-level design of the product: which turns the what of the requirements into a specific how this particular product will meet those requirements.
Product implementation is the phase of detailed engineering design of mechanical or electrical hardware, or the software engineering, as well as any test process that may be used to validate that the prototype meets the design specification and the requirements specification that was previously agreed to.
Fuzzy back-end or commercialization phase represent the action steps where the production manufacturing and market launch occur.
