NMIS series – Product Design Scotland Toolkit – part 3

About this event

Turning an idea into a commercial product is a challenge that faces many entrepreneurs, innovators and small to medium sized businesses. The design process must be carefully considered to ensure that development costs, timelines, and expectations are managed effectively.

Navigating the product design process can be daunting but Product Design Scotland, in partnership with its members and the National Manufacturing Institute Scotland (NMIS), will soon publish a Design Toolkit series to provide practical, best practice guidance on key topics within the development pipeline.

To coincide with the launch of the first of these toolkits, Product Design Scotland has partnered with NMIS to bring you a series of three online events that will explore each topic in more detail, providing valuable insight from experts involved in the innovation to commercialisation pathway.

The final event in our series will explore the challenges of scale-up. From manufacturing, to supply chain management, this can be a particularly treacherous aspect of the commercialisation journey and getting it right can mean the difference between success and failure.

We’ll also explore the management of change across all stages of the product lifecycle, helping you to understand the impact of change and best practices around it.

We’ll cover:

  • Managing supply chains – WideBlue
  • Change management – NMIS
  • Scaling manufacture – WideBlue
