Ensuring success is repeatable.

PLM Validation & Transfer

At Logic PD, the Validation & Transfer Stage helps ensure your product or solution can be reliably and repeatedly produced throughout its projected lifecycle. With a true understanding of the complete solution, the development approach and inherent risks, we can guide and implement the test and validation plan. Alongside a technical review, this is often where pre-marketing efforts begin. The results from these efforts can not only inform the Validation & Transfer processes, but are also critical inputs to the following Introduction & Launch Stage. Addressing any issues now will allow us to create a smooth transition into full production.

Key Conversations in the Validation & Transfer Stage:

  • Is the product ready for launch?
  • What is the result of initial pre-marketing?
  • Is the product team fully engaged with the development team?
  • Do the first units off the production line perform as expected?
  • Can we ramp up to higher volumes when needed?
  • Is the entire company prepared for launch from production and marketing to sales and executives?
