The Pilot Production phase is the final stage before commercial manufacturing. Because Gems understands manufacturing, we understand how to design for manufacturability. Our objectives are a smooth transition to manufacturing, and to verify project goals – quality, delivery and cost targets – are met.
Validation and FAIs are performed on each part and assembly to assure that the design specifications have been met. When you're ready, a Phase End Review finalises the documentation package and authorises transfer to commercial manufacturing.
Outputs from this Pilot Production phase include:
- Work/Build Instructions & Cell Documentation
- Resource Allocation Plan
- Total BOM Cost
- Material Sourcing Plan
- KPIs for Quality & Production Parameters
