Accelerate Success Through Product Development
For product development, we follow a proven project management process for moving a new product from initial idea to its launch into the marketplace. This process helps focus your project, accelerates the decision-making process, reduces your risk and accelerates commercialization. We also provide a post-launch review that will help you assess and learn from the project, so that your business may continue to optimize its product development cycle.
Bring Manufacturing Processes In Line With Your Goals
Businesses like you should routinely track and analyze the efficiency of your manufacturing processes to ensure they are running at the highest possible production rates while achieving the product quality necessary to sustain long-term business. Additionally, as your business develops new products, whether they are line extensions or new concepts, you often need to design and build, or redesign and rebuild, manufacturing equipment. Whatever the case, AMI can provide you with the appropriate resources and help you manage the project to meet your desired goals.
