PRODUCT DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT MANAGEMENT
Innovation and introduction of new products to the market is one of the fundamental processes in industry. Design and development and introduction of new products is hence the key to renewal and regeneration of industry and the long term competitiveness and survival of manufacturing companies.
Intensification of competition, rapidly changing technologies and shorter product life cycles, require an integrated approach to management of product development in order to create better quality products with enhanced capabilities, at attractive prices with compressed time to market cycles. Today customers often buy products without making a conscious distinction between tangible product, service or brand. This module concentrates on the management of the processes of product design, development, and introduction as an integrated whole from ideas and concept stage to customer, and in service.
