What goes into designing a great product?


Let's face it! We are visual creatures. How a product looks and feels, for example, can significantly affect the success of a product.

These are the key steps of Design Process:

  1. Design Input

  2. Design Specification Frozen

  3. Design Solution

  4. First Prototype and Design Verification

  5. Design Validation

  6. Design Review

  7. Design Iteration

  8. Design Frozen

  9. Pilot Run

1. Design Input

  • Product specification and requirement from customer

  • Use Cases

  • Business Processes

  • Wireframes

  • Design Concepts

2. Design Specification Frozen

  • Product design specification including hardware, software and/or system

3. Design Solution

  • System design

  • Hardware design

  • Software design

4. First Prototype and Design Verification

  • Develop and test first prototype according to the product design specification

  • Verify the outputs as specified by the design requirements

5. Design Validation

  • Validate the design - user testing and user trial

6. Design Review

  • Review the design according to the first prototype testing verification and validation results

  • Develop a list of gaps and recommendations based on the validation results

7. Design Iteration

  • Modify the approved design changes in reference to the change control procedures

  • Repeat the design to design review process until it reaches the acceptable design quality

8. Design Frozen

  • No further changes can be made to the design

  • Complete all necessary documentation and references for pilot run

9. Pilot Run

  • Design Approval

  • Advance to the production development
