The technology managers will have to place increasing emphasis on the innovation of products and processes to maintain competitiveness in today's globally interdependent markets. Considerations like shorter development cycles and high quality manufacturing methods play a crucial role in the evolution of technological advancement. This report examines these concepts, and presents a model for the introduction of new processes into the manufacturing environment. This model outlines the fifteen essential steps as a structured checklist, required to introduce a new process. These steps were developed by a review of a wide variety of process areas and a literature search. Introducing a new process following each step of this model will provide the optimal process introduction program.
