Vital components of product development - Part 1
Vital components of product development
The difference between good product development and great product development lies not only in the expertise of those working on the project but also in the marriage of that expertise with an unbiased approach using a proven process. Both the teams you manage and the work you outsource should be governed solely by a dedication to creating the best product possible. Syncroness is driven by ideals of transparency, lean/agile development processes, and a commitment to producing the best products on the market.
Our core value of building Lasting Relationships is defined by these three principles:
Employees and partners must be unbiased when it comes to product development. Product development engineering must be independent of any pre-conceived components or solutions. If your product development partner has financial incentive to use existing IP or components that they own, the result, in most cases, will be a compromised product. Product decisions should focus on using the best technology and manufacturing methods to achieve the desired functionality and cost. You should select a partner that ensures all IP developed during your project is exclusively client-owned.
Employees and partners must work intelligently and with a proven process. It's important to employ a partner that provides a turn-key product development process that has withstood the test of time. You should select a partner that specializes in product development who has the experience to de-risk new technology and finalize a design faster than your competitors. Your partner's employees should become an extension of your team so that you can maintain your vision while utilizing added engineering and development expertise to smooth out the nitty-gritty aspects of product development. Your product development partner should also be both adaptable and flexible, structuring both its team and its approach to problems to meet the unique needs of each client. Exceptional customer service is also a necessary quality in a partner because it means that you can count on having all your questions and concerns addressed quickly - from the beginning of a project to the very end.
Employees and partners should add value through expertise. Your product development partner should be well versed in the full product development effort, including:
• Initial ideation. Your partner should understand how to quickly assess and de-risk new technology required for the product.
• Manufacturing process integration. Your partner should also assist in finding a trusted contract manufacturer to make the product for you if you cannot manufacture it yourself.
• Agile execution. Your partner should be able to quickly iterate on the design to optimize the final product and be familiar with the various regulatory bodies and specifications required in your industry.
• Broad experience in multiple industries. By being well versed in the medical, aerospace, aviation, automated equipment, and related fields, your partner will be able to bring the latest design, materials and manufacturing methods to your product.
