“Those who plan do better than those who do not plan even though they rarely stick to their plan.” – Winston Churchill
Bringing new products to life
Every project regardless of scale requires a plan. You cannot deliver to plan if you don’t have a plan.
From initial engagement Cogent works with our clients to establish the key milestones in bringing a new product life. The focus is on your needs in terms of time, budget and specification.
We will produce a detailed plan covering not only actions assigned to the Cogent team as your manufacturer but those assigned to the client, their design teams and any key sub tier suppliers who will impact the plan.
A key element in our planning process is the establishment of a risk register, this allows us to consider how we might mitigate risk and head issues off at the pass. You won’t eliminate all hurdles but you’ll know how to get over more of them.
Cogent Technology has embedded good planning within it’s unique MaPs system so much of what we do is driven by process.
But you cannot achieve great things without a good communication. Your dedicated project manager will constantly monitor progress and provide the glue between Cogent and all other project partners. We will host regular reviews to bring our teams together and ensure the project is running to plan, review constraints and set about overcoming them.
Once a project is complete, the journey to transfer into series production begins.
Manufacturing 13,000 ventilators in 12 weeks? No problem. Building life-enhancing cancer diagnostics? Simple. Keeping clients for over 30 years? Easy. Read about some of our projects – and then find out what we can do for you.
What our clients say
“We are very pleased with the quality and consistency of the finished product as produced by Cogent Technology. They demonstrate a consistently high level of skill, commitment and importantly flexibility in getting the product to our customer base. Furthermore, their design input has made a significant contribution to the overall product manufacturability and quality.”
