The heart of business is creation.
What is keeping your business from creating something great?
Product managers are never lacking for good ideas. It’s the execution of those ideas that separates the good from the great.
When it comes to manufacturing truly innovative plastic products, there has to be a way to get those ideas to market.
Here are 4 questions to ask that will help get your idea from concept to execution.
1) What does the product do?
Plastics manufacturers need to know how sturdy certain parts should be, given the usage.
To make sure your plastic injection mold is accurate, consider the product's purpose. This will help you refine your design and perhaps cut manufacturing costs as well.
2) What quantities will you need?
In some cases, placing a large order is the only option that makes sense. With that said, don’t overshoot your numbers, especially if your product isn't tested.
You can use different style molds depending on the amount needed.
There are different grades of steel, categorized by hardness. Lower quantities and lower abrasion materials can use less expensive, softer steel.
High-volume orders may do better with harder steel like chrome plated. This works to create the mirror finish, or for better abrasion resistance, or both.
3) How will you test?
Good product management requires accurate testing and improvement. What is the process for gathering data and feedback from a reliable source? This will help see the tweaks needed in each iteration.
