    Abstract

    This paper shows a new method for minimizing the New Product Introduction (NPI) time of electronics manufacturing. The Fast Ramp-Up project defines the constructed and tested framework used for controlling the process from R&D to the production ramp-up process in the electronics industry. The suggested construct is based on tailored simulation games and change management measures. Thus, the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and the Contract Electronics Manufacturers (CEMs) practiced the NPI process by using simulation games. The characteristics of a successful NPI process are also described.
