What this is

Process and checklists for creating a Manufacturing Plan for a new product at appropriate points in the new product development timeline. Includes checklist for the earliest draft as well as the final plan.


Why it's useful

Manufacturing planning gives the Operations or Manufacturing organization an early view into what will be required — people, capital, facilities, etc. — to begin and ramp up manufacturing of a new product. Some planning must be done early enough to allow for aspects such as lead times on new equipment required and development time for new testing approaches. As the Operations personnel think through later manufacturing work for this product, they will also come up with questions and inputs for the development team that can be critical to the product's manufacturability. Outputs of manufacturing planning may also have a significant impact on budget and resource requirements.
