Development Process

SSI Technologies, Inc. utilizes a five phase process for product launch called “Concept to Customer” or “CtoC”. This process is used in conjunction with APQP to insure all phases of the product launch gain management approvals while meeting the customer’s timeline, functional requirements, and cost targets.

Program Acceptance and Quotation

This phase spans from the management decision to determine if the program fits within SSI's business model and is a viable project through the quote process.

Prototype Build and Product Readiness

This phase consists of prototype development, expenditure approvals for prototype materials and tooling, prototype builds, and Design Validation testing.

PPAP build and Production Readiness

This phase evaluates the readiness for trial runs and PPAP.  It covers capital and tooling readiness as well as documentation.  The output of this phase is the approval to run trials and subsequently PPAP.

Series Production Approval

This phase evaluates the success of the PPAP, PV Testing and establishes readiness for volume production.


This final phase marks the transition of the project from the launch team to the operations team and concludes the launch activities.  The product has achieved at least 10% of the first year’s volume, most major actions have been completed to ready the production line for series production, and the operations team takes full ownership.
