NEW PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT DISCOVERY DAY
EXPLORE TECHNOLOGY AND PROCESSES THAT WILL INCREASE YOUR PRODUCT'S CHANCE OF SUCCESS
The WMG SME Team are teaming up with MAS (Manufacturing Advisory Service) to deliver an insightful day to help manufacturing SMEs with new product development activity at the cutting edge International Institute for Product and Service Innovation.
Using MAS's New Product Development Gateway tool, the workshop will explore critical areas that need attention when developing new products across marketing, manufacture, product, finance and business.
Sessions running during the day include:
A practical session offering an introduction to Additive Layer Manufacturing Technology and how it is possible to take digital data to create a 3D physical prototype.
A session using a "Design with Intent" toolkit to look at what specific behaviours you can derive through clever product design and how you can better meet user requirements
Social Media as Intelligence Tool
How chatter and discussion on Twitter et al can help you determine what your competitors are doing and how you might use social media to create advocates and a community to ultimately sell your products.
Access to Finance
Have you finance in place for product development?
Session covering places that businesses can go to access finance for new product development
