The challenge does arise in how to create a perfect design keeping the end user in mind? Generally, the selection of the end-product is never made by its end-users. It is usually selected on the basis of the business processes and their needs
Since business these days require customizable solutions, therefore, it is necessary to focus on the specifications by implying them from the manual user adoption process.
Earlier the term ‘Product’ was used to name the goods in the marketplace but now it is used almost in every field of digital marketing and information technology. The designing of a particular product involves thorough research on target users.
When it comes to the designing of the product, the business should ask these three questions first.
The solution to the problems mainly lies in the following steps.
Research about the market needs by asking customers about their problems and observe the gap between the real problem and the customer.
Generate a clear point of view about the problem and its possible solutions i.e. what needs to be done and why it needs to be done based on the market research.
Write down all the ideas after conducting a brainstorm session. Highlight the possible solutions.
Now out of all the possible solutions, generate the user response by testing them on the potential users i.e. create a prototype and see if it works.
The most important task as it helps in getting the required feedback about the solution if it actually works or not.
After testing and receiving the response of the users, next comes the design process that actually converts the product into its real form. These are the key steps involved in the designing process that will help to know more about the product for further development.
1. Setting Vision and Strategy
A clear vision knows what to do and a clear strategy knows how to do it. Focus on your plan and drive a perfect strategy for the product, set boundaries and specific deadlines to meet the product requirements.
2. Product Research
Good research helps in the development of the product in the best possible manner. It involves collecting user analysis through online surveys and interviews and conducting market research.
This is a critical process as generating creative ideas through brainstorming could lead to best or worst case scenarios.
This is the most complex and important process after the ideation process as it requires the implementation of all the concepts.
Now comes the testing part right after the development of the end-product.
6. Post-launch activities
This final step is a never-ending process which is to maintain and update the quality of the product by experimenting with new modifications and relying on the consumer data.
