Product service design

Product & Service Design


There are degrees of newness

There are degrees of “Newness”

  • Modify existing products and services

  • Expand and existing product line or service offering

  • Clone a competitor’s product or service

  • New product or service

There is usually some combination

taking place simultaneously

  • Start with the CUSTOMER

    • Understand what the customer wants (or demands)

    • Understand what the customer will PAY for

  • RESPOND to Opportunities and Threats

    • Customers not buying what you are selling

    • Customers buying what you are not selling

  • Acknowledge Cost imperatives

  • Defensive considerations

    • Product liability

    • Availability (possible shortages or cost issues) of Raw Material, components, labor

Price

What the seller is paid for goods and services provided

Cost

The expenses incurred in operating the enterprise,

making and buying materials, and converting the

materials to finished goods

Value

The difference between Price and Cost


Target pricing is a key element in product specifications

Target Pricing is a Key Element in Product Specifications

Instead of adding profit and cost to establish a selling price, the organization

starts with the marketprice and required profit to establish a targetcost to

achieve the necessary profit.

  • Quality and Cost

  • Target pricing

  • Capital equipment

  • Time to market

  • Time to Volume

  • Postponement and “Mass Customization”


The standardization challenge

The Standardization Challenge

Standard parts are generally lower cost, more abundantly available,

provide the largest number of potential suppliers,

drive efficiencies in design, and provide other benefits

BUT…

Unique parts often differentiate products and performance,

and can provide competitive advantage to the seller


Postponement and mass customization

Postponement and Mass Customization

  • Combine uniqueness and standardization

    • Delayed differentiation

  • Modular design

    • Many permutations from standard components (e.g Dell computer, Burger King, Subway, magazines)

  • Inventory Management

  • Forecasting


Other design and spec considerations

Other Design and Spec Considerations

  • Decisions made EARLY affect Dollars spent LATER

  • Whenever possible it is recommended to re-use existing components when developing new products (rather than creating numerous new components whenever creating a new subassembly)

  • Partnering among Design, Marketing, Sales, and Suppliers during the Design process is a major opportunity to reduce both Time To Market and Cost

  • Product Portfolio

Service Design


Service design1

Service Design

  • Start with the Customer

    • Understand what the customer wants (or demands)

    • Understand what the customer will PAY for

  • Respond to Opportunities and Threats

    • Customers not buying what you are selling

    • Customers buying what you are not selling

  • Service Delivery Systems

    • Facilities

    • Processes

    • Skills

    • Technology

    • Service “blueprint”

These concepts also useful for Managing

Functions and Departments


Challenges of service design

  • Accompanying goods that are purchased or consumed by the customer, or provided with the service

    • Bundling of like products

    • Service contracts

    • Insurance plans

    • Package deals

  • Explicit services

  • Implicit services

  • Services cannot be inventoried

  • Services highly visible to customers

  • Services have low barrier to entry

  • Location important to service

  • Range of service systems

  • Demand variability

  • There is FUNGIBLE CAPACITY – you “use it or lose it”

  • Difficult to leverage and scale when people intensive

  • Turnover and attendance can be critical factors

  • Raw materials and components

  • New Markets

  • Labor

  • Tax relief and other incentives


Characteristics of service and retail locations

Characteristics of Service and Retail Locations

  • Heavier emphasis on REVENUE than Manufacturing locations

    • Traffic volume and convenience most important

    • Demographics

      • Age

      • Income

      • Education

    • Location is CRITICAL

    • Good transportation

    • Customer safety
