What is a Released Item?

Released Item Definition

A released item is a final product that has been approved for production or shipment to the end user. It is an integral part of the product development process and can have a substantial impact on an organization’s commercial success. Manufacturers must carefully manage the release process to ensure a successful product launch and customer satisfaction with the end product’s performance and quality.

Typically, a released item has been validated via a series of tests and inspections to ensure that it meets the required specifications and functions as intended. This may include functional testing, stress testing, and other quality control measures. After completing these tests and making any necessary adjustments or modifications, the item is released for mass production or distribution.
