When we partner with our customers to bring an idea or concept through development product launch and into production, we follow a four-phased Proven Process:
- Discover: rapid prototyping through the Caribou Innovation Center
- Develop: careful consideration to ensure Design for Reliability and Manufacturability
- Document: equipment, tooling, materials, and manufacturing & inspection documents
- Deliver: product launch with continued focus to reduce costs and leadtimes
Our team supports and manages each phase to completion: scheduled project team meetings, evaluation of project risks (product, cost, and time), and Phase Reviews to close and initiate each phase.
We encourage our customers to work with us in our Innovation Center. The results are faster speed to market with less continuing engineering post product launch.
We have been ISO 13485-2003 certified since 2007. Plus, we’re an approved Dock-to-Stock Supplier as well as a Preferred and Qualified Supplier. Learn more here.
