Product or model launch support

Launch support

A new product or model going into production is one of the most critical times in the manufacturing process. Ricardo can implement and manage established programme management processes to increase launch programme efficiency.

Our approach to providing launch support strategies includes managing the total programme with Microsoft Project and action logs to ensure milestone and gateway accountability. Additionally, we implement and manage proven programme management processes to increase launch effectiveness, including:

  • Technology readiness levels (TRL)
  • Failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA)
  • Design verification plan and report (DVP&R)
  • Production part approval process (PPAP)
  • Advanced product quality planning (APQP)

Our global cross functional technical and manufacturing personnel have significant experience in launching complex programmes. Just a few of the unique capabilities our sector specialist teams have include:

  • Programme management throughout all phases of the programme from product development to production launch
  • Can handle large, complex programmes with resources located and deployable around the globe
  • Problem resolution, including action log management, identification of internal and external dependencies, provide programme health assessment, and risk prioritisation
  • Value chain balancing to ensure all launch needs are considered, evaluated, and prepared for production
