TOP-PRDEV: The Product Development Process


Trinity Forge’s "Product Development" process consists of the series of activities necessary for working with a customer to develop a concept for a forged and/or machined part into the specifications and tooling necessary prior to for production. These are the activities associated with selling, engineering and tooling for both new products and for engineering changes.

Providing the resources necessary for Product Development is the Resource Management process (see TOP-RMGMT). Actual processing of a parts order is the Order Fulfillment process (see TOP-PRODN). Records maintained from Process Development ultimately feed into the Review and Improvement process (see TOP-IMPRV) .
