  1. Product Design L2- Development processes and organizations Dr. Husam Arman

  2. Generic Development Process

  3. The concept Development phase

  4. Variants of the Generic Development Process • Generic (Market-Pull) Process • Technology-Push Products • Platform Products • Process-Intensive Products • Customized Products

  5. Generic Process and Its Variants • Generic (Market Pull) Products • Firm begins with a market opportunity, then finds technology to meet customer needs • Examples: tools, sporting goods, furniture

  6. Generic Process and Its Variants • Technology-Push Products • Firm begins with a new technology, then finds an appropriate market • Distinction with generic • additional activity matching: technology and market • concept development assumes a given technology • Examples: Gore-Tex rainwear, Tyvek envelopes

  7. Generic Process and Its Variants • Platform Products • Firm assumes new product will be built around same technology as an existing product • Distinction with generic • concept development assumes a technology platform • Examples: consumer electronics, computers, printers

  8. Generic Process and Its Variants • Process-Intensive Products • characteristics of the product are highly constrained by the production process • Distinction with generic • both process and product must be developed together from the beginning, or existing process must be specified from the beginning • Examples: chemicals, semiconductors, snack foods, cereal

  9. Generic Process and Its Variants • Customized (“Parametric”) • New products are slight variations of existing configurations • Distinction from generic • similarity of products allows for highly structured development process • development process almost like a production process • Examples: switches, motors, batteries, containers

  10. Product development organizations

  11. Criteria for choosing an organizational structure • How important is cross-functional integration? • How critical is cutting-edge functional expertise to business success? • Can individuals from each function be fully utilized for most of the duration of a project? • How important is product development speed?

  12. Product Planning

  13. Product Design and DevelopmentKarl T. Ulrich and Steven D. Eppinger2nd edition, Irwin McGraw-Hill, 2000. Chapter Table of Contents 1. Introduction 2. Development Processes and Organizations 3. Product Planning 4. Identifying Customer Needs 5. Product Specifications 6. Concept Generation 7. Concept Selection 8. Concept Testing 9. Product Architecture 10. Industrial Design 11. Design for Manufacturing 12. Prototyping 13. Product Development Economics 14. Managing Projects

  14. Product planning • Corporations typically plan products many years in advance • Product planning ensures that products support overall business strategy • Determine mix of new products vs. upgrades • Optimize past experience as leverage into new products • Decide which market segments to target

  15. Product Development Process Concept Development System-Level Design Detail Design Testing and Refinement Production Ramp-Up Planning Four Phases of Product Development The product planning phase precedes the product development process.

  16. The Product Planning ProcessQuestions • What PD projects will be undertaken? • What mix of new products, platforms, and derivative products to pursue? • How do the various projects relate to each other as a portfolio? • What will be the timing and sequence ofthe project?

  17. Mission statement • What market segments to consider? • What new technologies to incorporate? • What are the manufacturing and service goals and constraints? • What are the financial targets of the project? • What are the budget and time frame for the project?

  18. Product plan • The product plan identifies the portfolio of products to be developed by the organization and the timing of their introduction to the market • The plan may divide projects into four categories: new platforms, derivatives of existing platforms, product improvements, and fundamentally new products

  19. Xerox Lakes Project Example Xerox Document Centre 265

  20. A Product Plan • Types of product development projects: • New product platforms, derivatives of existing platforms, incremental improvements to existing products, and fundamentally new products

  21. The Product Planning Process 1. Identify opportunities 2. Evaluate and prioritize products 3. Allocate resources and plan timing 4. Complete pre-project planning 5. Reflect on the results and the process  Product “Mission Statement”

  22. S1. Identify OpportunitiesIdea Sources for New Products • Marketing and sales personnel • Research and technology development organizations • Current product development teams • Manufacturing and operation organizations • Current or potential customers • Third parties such as suppliers, inventors, and business partners.

  23. S2. Evaluate and Prioritize Projects • Opportunity funnel can collect 100s or even 1000s of opportunities during a year. • Select the most promising projects to pursue. • Basic perspectives to prioritize: • Competitive Strategy, • Market segmentation, • technological trajectories, • and product platforms

  24. Competitive Strategy • Technology leadership • Cost leadership • Customer focus • Imitative

  25. Market Segmentation • Dividing a market into segments allows the firm to consider the actions of competitors and the strength of the existing products of the firm with respect to each well-defined group of customers.

  27. Technological Trajectories • In technology intensive businesses, a key product decision is when to adopt a new technology in a product line. • Technology S-curves are conceptual tool to help to think about such decisions.

  29. Product Platform Planning • A platform development project creates the architecture of a family of products. • Derivative Products may be included in the initial platform development effort or derivative products may follow thereafter. • One technique for coordinating technology development with product planning is the technology roadmap.

  35. Lakes Project Mission Statement • Product Description • Networkable, digital machine with copy, print, fax, and scan functions • Key Business Goals • Support Xerox strategy of leadership in digital office equipment • Serve as platform for all future B&W digital products and solutions • Capture 50% of digital product sales in primary market • Environmentally friendly • First product introduction 4thQ 1997 • Primary Market • Office departments, mid-volume (40-65 ppm, above 42,000 avg. copies/mo.) • Secondary Markets • Quick-print market • Small ‘satellite’ operations • Assumptions and Constraints • New product platform • Digital imaging technology • Compatible with CentreWare software • Input devices manufactured in Canada • Output devices manufactured in Brazil • Image processing engine manufactured in both USA and Europe Stakeholders • Purchasers and Users • Manufacturing Operations • Service Operations • Distributors and Resellers

  37. Project Timing • Timing of product introductions • Technology readiness • Market readiness • Competition

  38. Mission statements • Brief (one sentence) description of the product • Key business goals • Target market(s) for the product • Assumption and constraints that guide the development effort (Manufacturing, Service, Environment) • Stakeholders

  39. Reflect on the results and theprocess • Is the opportunity funnel collecting an exciting and diverse set of product opportunities? • Does the product plan support the competitive strategy of the firm? • Does the core team accept the challenges of the resulting mission statement? • How can the product planning process be improved?
