Time to Market – Time to Volume

With the ever increasing pressure on businesses to maintain and improve their market position, OEM's need to concentrate on their core competencies and align themselves with the most effective and robust supply chain they can. The importance of effective but rapid product development is a must if OEM's are to keep ahead of competition.

Time to Market – Time to Volume is imperative more than ever and is key to sustainable success keeping one step ahead at all times. However, how many projects take too long and continually miss planned milestones, product launch dates and inevitably potential market share? Unfortunately far too many!

Way in advance of volume production and logistics, Esprit successfully provide extensive project management and design/design support to OEM's across varied market sectors. Also and throughout the entire design phase, Esprit maintains supply chain surveillance over the design qualifying material lead-time and ensuring obsolescence has not been designed in or indeed identify if selected devices are used by alternate market sectors such as Automotive, Mobile Phone, FMCG etc. where capacity will always dominate. Too often we have seen core processor selection and expensive evaluation turn into disaster when it's discovered, sometimes too late, that the processor selected is used by a market sector which calls the tune and puts your product in the queue!

Esprit ensures this does not happen and that an effective supply chain is established throughout the entire product life cycle. Our dedicated NPI facility ensures rapid prototype manufacture, process qualification and pre-production and the establishment of an effective and sustainable supply chain.

Design for test is another core area sometimes not considered early enough in the design resulting in compromise and in many cases risk. What's the measurable damage to a business where a new product has been launched that subsequently is discovered to have a design problem that wasn't picked up through effective product qualification and production test. Esprit ensures that every design, even as early as the schematic stage, test is considered and a test strategy agreed and incorporated in the design ensuring appropriate test coverage at all times.

Esprit's collaborative approach to design and effective project management ensures rapid product development and volume production having taken out traditional delays in the design cycle and product introduction. Consideration to Time to Market – Time to Volume equals a business with a clear focus on success and desire to maintain its market position.
