Product Design Process

The product design process is a series of steps that engineers and designers follow to develop a new product to manufacture and sell.


Conceptual Design

Conceptual Design is an early phase of the design process, in which the broad outlines of the function and form of something are articulated.

Product Design Process (PDP)

The product design process is a set of planned activities that convert an idea into a product and make it commercially available to the end-user

Concurrent Engineering (CE)

In Concurrent engineering product design methodology, different departments simultaneously work on different stages of engineering product development.


Generative Design (GD)

Generative design is a powerful tool that can lead to new and innovative designs that are difficult or impossible to achieve through traditional design methods.

Product definition

As a result of this activity, a comprehensive PDS in the form of a requirements list emphasising all technical, economic, and quality factors is produced.

Detailed Design

In the form of production documentation, the detailed design phase produces a detailed specification of each part and assembly.

Rapid prototyping

Rapid prototyping is the process of quickly creating a preliminary version of the product to evaluate the design and its functionality

Types of Product design

Engineering product design is done for various purposes and in various ways resulting in different product design types.

Concurrent and Sequential engineering

Concurrent and sequential engineering are the two main product design workflow approaches companies to use to interact with functional teams to share information during the eight stages of new product development.

Embodiment design

During the Embodiment design phase, the main concept is developed to a stage where detailed design can lead directly into production.

New product development (NPD)

New Product Development is a comprehensive set of multi-disciplinary processes that turns an opportunity into a product to satisfy a customer
