KTN Survey: help us identify the challenges innovators face when bringing hardware products to market?
Help us understand how innovators in manufacturing businesses undertake the stages, from prototype to scaled-up manufacturing and commercialisation.
In a recent blog the KTN Manufacturing team looked at the challenges manufacturing companies faced when bringing hardware products to market.¬† Some of the skills and knowledge we highlighted included manufacturing strategy, design for manufacturing and assembly, testing, make-buy decisions, supply chain management, and manufacturing process design, investment, licensing and IP.
We want to understand better how you as innovators complete the stages in the journey to commercialise a hardware product and what wins and challenges you face along the way.¬† We‚Äôve designed a survey to capture your thoughts and experiences and would welcome your input.
We‚Äôre keen to collect views from different stages of the product development lifecycle with a view to refining support available for those making the challenging transition from prototype to scaled-up manufacturing.
The results of this survey will help shape the funding and collaboration support KTN can provide to hardware innovators.
If you are a hardware developer, please take 5 minutes to complete our survey. In some cases, we‚Äôd like to follow up with a more detailed discussion about your journey ‚Äì if this is something you‚Äôd be interested in there will be an opportunity to indicate this in the survey.
