What this is

A checklist for ensuring that before a product's documentation is released to Manufacturing to begin production builds for customers, all important aspects have been covered.


Why it's useful

The quality of the handoff between Development and Manufacturing is critical for Manufacturing's success at building and shipping a high-quality product, in the appropriate volumes, at desired overhead and throughput.


How to use it

Use this checklist in two ways:

As a look-ahead, as your Development team designs a new product or enhancement or cost-reduction of an existing product. The checklist should be reviewed

  • as project schedules are being put together;
  • as engineering specs are created to drive detailed design work;
  • and during design reviews to ensure that Manufacturing's later needs are being taken into account.

As a checklist for preparing for a Manufacturing Release hand-off during the Delivery phase. The checklist should be

  • referred to as the engineering groups do final tweaks to designs and complete all production documentation.
  • referenced in any formal hand-off meetings at the time of Manufacturing Release.
  • if desired, used as an official part of the release signoff process - i.e., appropriate executives sign that the checklist has been reviewed as part of the release effort, and the product and its documentation are ready to be released to Manufacturing to start production builds.
