It is true that when you’re designing a new product there is always a possibility of having a problem with implementing the changes you want to make. While it’s true that with a relatively straightforward change you can have a great impact on the way your existing products to sell and function, the same is not necessarily true when it comes to changing the look and feel of a completely new product. And one of the most important things to remember when designing a new product is that you need to make sure that your redesign doesn’t create any problems that could have been solved with the existing design. While it’s true that if you’re redesigning something that you’re starting from a stronger and more stable platform, operating from a prior user base and an already established product line, having existing functionality problems is an unavoidable reality. However, these problems can be solved very easily.
One of the keys to designing a new product with ease is making sure that you design thinking ahead of time. For instance, when I was designing the corporate logo for our company we spent a lot of time thinking about how the design would relate to our key metrics and our brand image. After all, the logo represented who we were and what we did, and this was a critical component of our business.
Another key thing to remember is that successful product designers are good at developing a variety of design processes. Some industrial design process requires producing many different prototypes before a final product is released. Other design processes require producing many different drafts of each prototype until a final product is approved for production. Still other industrial design process requires producing many different versions of each draft until one is approved. Each of these processes have their own set of tradeoffs in the quality of product designed, but each also requires an enormous number of product designers in order to operate. Therefore, successful product designers possess a wide range of skills that often goes undetected because they are so diverse.
Effective product designers also need to think about how to scale up their design process once their product design has been finalized. Scaling up a product design or prototype production line requires increased capital, greater logistical capacity, and more efficient manufacturing and packaging processes. New product development teams face numerous challenges in scaling their product development activities, but successful new product designers usually focus on meeting those challenges head on. Successful product designers are willing to think through new ways of manufacturing, packaging, and even marketing their new products.
Finally, product designers also need to have an understanding of business development, marketing, and business analysis. All of these disciplines are absolutely essential when it comes to successfully building a new product design team. The right product designers will have expertise in all of these areas and should be able to combine them into a cohesive and effective product design process.
