Product Development Process

Successful product commercialization is achieved when a product development process is integrated within customer development and is executed by an experienced team where everyone involved is following that process.    Since 1994, PADT has worked to build an experienced team of development engineers, establish a product development process, and hone our skills.  This effort has led to the following core principles:

  • Build the right product. 
  • Identify risks.
  • Reduce to practice early.
  • Employ expertise. 
  • Communicate often and well. 
  • Iterate inteligently

A Proven Process

Product development is a non-linear process that cannot be fully described in a rigid process.  Instead it is a collection of iterations with forward progress gated by end customer feedback and directed by experience and judgment.  The following graphic illustrates the idealized product development process employed by PADT.

A Process Designed to Make Your Innovation Work

The best way to understand how PADT's product development process can help you get better products to market, in less time, and with less expense, is to contact one of our product development engineers. They can work with you to understand where your product is in the development cycle and how best PADT can contribute to its success.
