The objectives of the Design Readiness Assessment will be to assess an existing manufacturer’s opportunity to enhance existing products, launch new products, or leverage existing Intellectual Property (I/P). Teams of business professionals will meet with the executive team from the 20 manufacturing firms to assess their capabilities across a wide spectrum of business measures; subsequently, the firms will receive an objective assessment of their design readiness, as well as a set of recommendations for such business practices as LEAN, skills development, supply chain management, business diversification, etc.
This is an opportunity for industrial designers, engineers, product development specialists, et al, to be a member of one of the assessment teams and to partner with local manufacturers in preparing them for the future.
