In the latest blog entry for SunMan's Blog, CEO Allen Nejah discusses product development, as well as challenges and common mistakes make by companies in their approach, Below are a couple of choice excerpts.
In response to the question "What are the challenges of product development these days?
"Generally, product development services involve understanding a number of different disciplines, and understanding every aspect of the entire process, from A to Z. This includes: the available technologies in the market, and developing an architecture to both the product requirements, and the business and marketing strategy in order to bring the product concept to reality...A developer will run into problems if they don’t incorporate the information form the manufacturing phase into the design phase. For example the product may not be able to be manufactured with the technology available, or it may be too expensive to manufacture. Design and manufacturing need to go hand in hand, like a glove."
The Interview also explains how product developers squander time and money:
"Developers tend to waste a lot of time and money by not learning from prior experience and pitfalls. Many times they do not incorporate these shortcomings into the design and development projects. Learning from previous experiences will reduce the amount of pitfalls by a great amount. This is really important, because every mistake will delay your electronic product development project, therefore costing more time and money."
Also, Allen has some tips for a successful QA process:
"A good QA process will avoid expensive mistakes and delays, and having a detailed test plan is very important. Just like the manufacturing process requirements, the test plan needs to be well defined and implemented in the design phase. Think of this as insurance for your product design and development efforts. The more QA implemented in the product development cycle the more successful and smoother the ride to manufacturing and final product."
