Infosys Webinar for the Manufacturing Industry - Leveraging Global Product Development To Enhance Product Development Effectiveness

Webinar Details | Speakers

The Manufacturing industry continues to reel from pressures on the fronts of:

  • Time-to-market
  • Innovation and
  • Cost

Organizations that address these multiple challenges effectively would be the likely winners in the present-day competitive environment.

The Product Development function is uniquely placed to impact each of these in a significant manner.

  • It directly impacts the new product time-to-market
  • Its orientation determines the degree of focus on innovation
  • It impacts up to 80% of a product's lifecycle costs

Enhancing Product Development Effectiveness, therefore, is a clear imperative. The question, then, is how soon and quickly can it be done.

Global Product Development is rapidly emerging as a key instrument that leverages the 24-hour product development clock, enables enhancement of focus on innovation, and reduces the cost of product development by up to 40%. It thereby enables significant enhancement of Product Development Effectiveness.
