In the context of GCMI’s phase-gated product development process the “Design and Development” phase (also called “Phase 2” at GCMI)…
Our process including design and development
Project success is dependent on careful consideration of several intersecting aspects: technological, clinical, commercial and legal. We follow a structured, phase-gated process that allows for a disciplined product development approach. Our process encourages an early focus on clear problem definition and de-risking a wide variety of potential solutions.
From the 30,000 foot level, the phases can be reasonably defined as:
- Manufacturing transfer
By later phases, the funnel of design options narrows significantly, converging on a final product that has been thoroughly shown to meet the customer needs and is ready for commercialization.
