To develop a product from idea to prototype, follow these steps: research the market, create a design brief, make a concept sketch, create detailed designs, build a prototype, test and refine it, prepare for manufacture, and be open to feedback. Persistence and attention to detail will make it a rewarding experience.
Design is critical for businesses as it empowers them to identify problems, generate ideas, prototype, test, and launch products. Before starting, companies must research their target audience to gain insights and brainstorm creative ideas. Prototyping allows the refinement of designs to meet the user’s needs, ensuring they are market-ready. Companies can then launch their innovative solutions that provide value to both customers and the business.
