Cross Industry (7.2.1)

  • 2.3.3.1 - Design and obtain necessary capabilities/materials and equipment (10099) - Developing and/or sourcing the essential machinery needed for creating purpose-built processes, as well as the raw materials, to produce the new products/services. Either design the equipment and materials needed internally, or source from external vendors. Obtain the feedstock or raw materials needed to prepare the finished products, as well as the machinery - hardware and software - needed to arrange production lines, factory operations, assemblies, and manufacturing processes. Revisit the technologies that underpin the new or revised products/services in order to source the right equipment and materials.
  • 2.3.3.2 - Identify requirements for changes to manufacturing/delivery processes (10097) - Identifying any changes that need to be effectuated in the organization's internal processes for manufacturing, and delivering the newly developed products/services. Determine if any changes need to be made to the production and distribution processes, in light of the new products/services. Begin production process planning. Prepare for factory layout planning. Generate shop-floor instructions and changes to the supply chain.
  • 2.3.3.3 - Request engineering/process change (11418) - Requesting changes in the production and/or delivery operations for processing the new or revised products/services. Rectify any problems identified in the manufacturing or delivery processes (through Monitor production runs [11417]). Seek changes in components, repair machinery, optimize production lines, and tweak factory assemblies through a formal notice to the concerned division, known as an engineering change order.
  • 2.3.3.4 - Install and validate production/service delivery process (10100) - Finalizing production process or methodology. Install and initiate the production process to manufacture the new products, using the equipment and machinery already assembled. In the case of new services, implement delivery processes and methodologies. Validate processes for the accuracy of their operation and proper functioning.
    • 2.3.3.4.1 - Monitor initial production runs (11417) - Regularly monitoring production runs of the production and/or delivery operations.
  • 2.3.3.5 - Validate launch procedures (19998) - Verifying the measures/processes/techniques through systems and tools involved in the introduction of products and services.
