Sheet Metal Fabrication New Product Introduction
B&P Fabrications strive to move from – initial customer enquiry to sample supply with full visibility at each stage, in the shortest time possible.
The Technical Sales dept make full use of CAD/CAM systems throughout all quotation activity. Working to review new enquiries as part of a cross-functional team.
B&P Fabrications use Autodesk Inventor to make cost-effective decisions with respect to sheet metal fabrication. The Radan CAD/CAM package produces highly accurate “nests” to maximise material utilisation – allowing B&P to offer best cost – first time.
As part of the NPI process, B&P Fabrications try to engage with customers as early as possible in the design & development of a new part. B&P feedback regularly leads to tangible total cost benefits to new and existing customers.
During the NPI process, all initial sample orders are held within a sample-specific code in our systems to push all demand via the Quality team. The Quality team will complete all required documentation including PPAP & ISIR to accompany our sample supply.
