The Centre for Process Innovation (CPI) helps its clients to develop products and prove processes with minimal risk. Using state of the art tools and techniques, CPI's experienced engineers will provide quantitative estimates of product or process costs. They can identify scale-up issues very early in the process by using experimental data, and can suggest alternatives that may change the direction of research programmes. CPI can estimate economic viability and calculate whether yield improvements from process improvements and optimisation are likely. This makes R&D investments work harder, helps commercialise processes and helps clients and their investors realise returns faster.
