New Product Realization

Creation is reinventing the NPI process with LEAP, providing a Global Stage Gate process that covers all aspects of the product lifecycle from new designs to product transfers.

What is LEAP?

LEAP, Launch to Excellence to Advanced Production, is a Global Stage Gate process that covers all aspects of the product lifecycle from new designs to product transfers.

The Stage-Gate model is designed to improve the quality of execution of product launch activities.

The process helps teams prepare the right information, with the right level of detail, at the right time to deliver value to the customer.

A good Stage Gate process ensures effective Customer Communication and Acceptance and Reduces Risk for the smoothest execution possible.

THE RESULTS:

  • Confidence and expertise to provide you with recommendations and accurate direction
  • Effective communication of critical Information throughout product launch
  • Peer-to-peer interaction with the team who is launching and manufacturing your product, and who also possesses decision-making authority
  • Manufacturing Transition Toolbox resources dedicated to providing you with visibility, start to finish
  • Vision Customer Portal for real-time supply chain, production and quality data
