Trusted Ingenuity. Proven Reliability. ℠
New Product Introduction
Get it done right the first time – fast! These are the words you hear when trying to accelerate your time to market because finding more time is not an option. IEC Electronics shares that sense of urgency and has a Product Acceleration Center dedicated to our customers New Product Introductions (NPI).
Minimizing the risk for timely re-spins begins with a comprehensive analysis of the design itself. Our engineering expertise combined with broad DfX tools, diagnoses the design and provides solutions to reduce the risk for supply chain, manufacturing, and functional performance testing.
From quick-turn prototypes to component qualifications, our Product Acceleration Center is flexible and focused to provide the highest level of technical expertise for your complex assemblies.
Communication is the final key for a successful bridge from design into manufacturing. Whether inspecting the product remotely via webcam or personal delivery of the first article at your facility with our Ambassador Program, our goal is to provide fast and accurate information to support your time to market goals.
