In today’s increasingly competitive industry, getting to market fast is no longer an option—it’s imperative. There are four ways we help customers get to market faster. When it comes to developing your project, we know what to look for, what needs to be done, what questions to ask, and common pitfalls to avoid.
Our customers find that getting IMC involved early in the design stage promotes the manufacturability of the product and a more robust design is often the result. They also find that this collaborative approach is one of the best ways to improve engineering productivity and time-to-market because it avoids expensive, time-consuming downstream changes.
Whether it is a new product moving from concept to production, or an existing component or assembly in need of a design change, we’ll help you find ways to optimize the manufacturing process for time, cost and quality. We also understand that on-time delivery means not only delivering product on time, but also meeting all of our project management deadlines as well.
Research shows that decisions made during the design phase of a project determine 70% of the cost of a new product. Even more importantly, decisions made in the first 5 % of product design could determine the vast majority of the product’s cost, quality and manufacturability. In other words, design-for-manufacturability (DFM) can have a dramatic effect on a product’s success and profitability.
We have a unique ability to understand the functionality of the components we produce and translate this understanding into better ways of doing things. IMC has invested heavily in DFM expertise, in-house tooling, and the ability to design and build our own assembly equipment . As a result, we are uniquely qualified to help you:
By getting IMC engineers involved early in the design process, we can apply our more than 40 years of Design-for-Manufacturability expertise and experience to help ensure that your new products can be manufactured in a cost-effective manner. The next time you feel the "need for speed," give us a call; we’ll help put your project on the fast track to completion.
