What is Product Engineering Services (PES)? How Does It Help?
As buyers continue to insist on latest features and functionalities with quick turnaround time, businesses push for superior quality and cost benefits from product manufacturers. This has led to the creation of a completely new engineering service by vendors like Genconian Technologies, which is dedicated to launching products faster into the market. Product engineering service can be defined as an engineering consulting activity, which uses various hardware, embedded, software and IT services solution for the designing and development of products.
Different Phases of PES
There are different phases of product engineering from inception to the end of the lifecycle of a product. Therefore, when we talk about product engineering, it is also important to know about different phases of product engineering. Let’s look at the different phases of product development:
- Concept (conceiving the idea)
This is the initial stage, which involves conceiving the idea and at the same time documenting it in terms of specifications and requirements. Then the idea is further scrutinized to know whether it is worth pursuing or not. Though a concept may seem exciting at the first glance, it may not always be worth pursuing.
Once the concept is finalized, the next phase is to bring the concept to life by creating engineering designs. Any improvements and changes are also made in this phase before the design is finalized.
The next phase is about developing or assembling of the product. A lot of attention is paid to implementing the project and managing and optimizing costs.
- Testing & Release
A developed product always has to go through stringent quality checks to validate that the developed product is fault-free and can be used as intended. Any faults need to be identified during this phase and then required changes, modifications or rectification is done in order to release the product. Once the product is developed, it is then released into the market. Feedback has to be collected from users to further improve the product in the following versions. It can also be given to external product testers to understand the user experience.
