Poly-Cast New Part Introduction (NPI) Process
One thing we do not compromise on is customer satisfaction and to assure that Poly-Cast has developed a rigorous process for introducing new parts into our production facility – whether those parts have never been produced before or something that is coming to us from another supplier. Therefore, the primary focus for the engineering team at Poly-Cast are Tooling and Project Management. Through these two departments, quality, deliverability and assurance of supply are designed into the products that are introduced into manufacturing.
This NPI discipline comprises:
Early involvement of Engineering with the customer by a Poly-Cast Project Manager and Tooling Engineer utilizing ProEngineer and Moldflow Part Advisor as design aids.
Selection and involvement of tool making vendor prior to design release.
Strict adherence to the Poly-Cast NPI procedure, ensuring systems-driven execution of tool build through product approval for manufacturing.
Clear and regular communication with the customer to status project progression; maintain customer involvement in key decisions regarding product optimization.
For Transportation related industries, Poly-Cast project management is compliant to APQP, 1994
