This is the most important part of new product, service, or process development because it focuses on obtaining a consensus from all teams on the current state of production readiness. It addresses areas requiring improvement and provides your decision-makers at all levels with a common understanding of the relative maturity and current risks associated with your new idea.
The POMM Design and Development Team leaders and your team sit down once again side-by-side to clearly refine tolerances, materials, finishes, styling, ergonomics, and the overall look and feel of the final vision and goal.
Detail design, or design-for-manufacture, is the stage where each component of your idea is identified, engineered, and documented with digital drawings and specifications. This is done in preparation of manufacturing your idea into a market-ready product, service, or process.
Are you simplifying to yield bottom line dollars?
Prototyping, rapid iterations, and user testing are conducted, if necessary. This gives all teams a chance to evaluate, confirm, and approve the product, service, or process to ensure it meets your goal and vision and to obtain a consensus on the current state of production readiness.
Your idea is now ready for implementation, production, and launch.
