The ramp-up is the process by which a new product goes from prototyping and testing to mass production and distribution. This phase in the product life cycle is critical because it requires ensuring that the manufacturing process is sufficiently optimized to produce products in large volume.
During the start of serial production , production procedures and processes are often improved in order to achieve higher efficiency and product quality . This includes setting up production lines, securing the supply of raw materials and components, training workers and developing thorough procedures and control mechanisms.
At this stage, thorough testing of the product is also often carried out to ensure that it meets all the required specifications and standards. If any deficiencies or problems are identified, adjustments and improvements can be made before production is run at full capacity.
The goal of starting mass production is to achieve a stable and reliable production process that can satisfy market demand. It means that production is moving from smaller test and prototype series to full-scale mass production.
