New Product Development

The development of a new product can be one of the most exiting, potentially rewarding endeavors a company can take on. It's clear that breakthrough products and solutions can drive a compelling value proposition for customers and can be an engine for growth for companies. It is also clear that new product development can be one of the riskiest endeavors a company can start.

At Matrix Engineering Consultants (MEC), we acknowledge and respect the risks companies take on in developing a new product. We take our responsibility as a partner in the new product development process very serious, always looking for ways to either avoid or mitigate product development risks on your behalf. Fortunately success in new product success is both predictable and controllable when they are developed using a structured product development process.

MEC has developed its own New Product Development process which is aligned with the internationally recognized Stage-Gate™ Process and based on our 50 years of product development experience. This is a cross-functional business process that manages risk & increases the probability of success of your product launch!

MEC has a proven track record in the development of a wide range of products and as a result, developed multiple areas technical expertise.
