Swift new product introduction
For customers, accelerating the time‐to‐market for new products is a strategic imperative in today’s ever‐changing market environment. Considering the complexity of collaborating with engineering, supply chain, quality assurance, and manufacturing, planning and executing a seamless New Product Introduction (NPI) launch is always a challenging endeavor. At Premio, we never say “impossible”, and our well‐established NPI process helps our customers bring their products to market with exceptional speed. Tailored to each unique customer, Premio’s flexible NPI process can accelerate each ODM/OEM NPI project with exceptional speed and without compromising the necessary due diligence processes including setting up material AVLs, build instructions and documentations, configuration control, and manufacturing quality checkpoints.
Product lifecycle management – Peace of mind for customers
Premio initiates Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) planning from the early design phase for ODM projects by selecting appropriate components to meet customer product lifespan requirements. For OEM projects, Premio will leverage our supply chain to assess AVL alternatives to mitigate potential risks of material interruptions.
Painless EOL transitions
When it comes time to revise, upgrade, or decommission products, Premio will initiate a set of EOL processes among AVL and promptly notifying affected customers. Using customer‐focused operational measures, Premio is able to mitigate EOL impacts to our customers, and our blend of stocking, shipping, and re‐ordering techniques ensures a painless transition between product revisions for customers.
Some of the key pillars for Premio PLM practice are:
Configuration & revision management
Engineering change control
Last-time buy arrangement
Case Study: Enhanced PLM for Screening Agency
Improved Performance & Lifecycle Poorly designed, off-the-shelf computers couldn’t perform in harsh operating environments, causing double-digit failure rates. These failures translated into a multi-million dollar annual servicing cost. In addition because the off-the-shelf computers had short product lifecycles, they frequently required configuration changes and incurred much higher costs. The lack of regulatory compliance and configuration control on their existing computer equipment affected the agency’s ability to meet and compete for government contracts, and compete in the global marketplace.
