R&D / Product Development

New products form the lifeblood of most companies. With ever-increasing competition from many sources, competitive advantage is often short-lived, so the ability to develop new products which customers really want and are willing to pay for is essential to the future prosperity of any business.

  • Are your products or services designed to satisfy your customersí needs?
  • Are your products designed to keep manufacturing costs down?
  • Is quality designed into your products from the outset?
  • Is your organisation good at developing new products?
  • Do you have a clear, robust and effective process for developing and launching new products?
  • Do you know when to abandon a product development?

Expeditus Consulting is experienced in helping organisations review their current R&D and product development practices, with a view to maximising the effect of their future spending in this area.

Examples of our capability in this area include:

  • Design and implementation of new product development processes
  • Design and implementation of product development review processes
  • Feeding back customer needs into the product development process
  • Extending existing product lifecycles
  • Reducing time-to-market and time-to-profit for new products
  • Designing in quality, flexibility and manufacturability from the outset
  • Introducing customer-driven product design tools and techniques
  • Introducing and implementing QFD (Quality Function Deployment)
  • Harnessing innovation in the workplace
