  • Managewell Tathagat Varma, Think, Do, Learn, Blog, Talk, Share at [24]7 Innovation Labs @PerumalManivannan Perumal, you make a fair point. However, we also need to consider the fundamental difference between an existing and a new product. By definition, an existing product has crossed the stage where several of uncertainties and assumptions about the opportunity, market, product and customers, and if the product is already in steady-state, then chances are high that most of these assumptions have already been validated. However in case of a new product, most of these are simply hypothesis and hence embarking on a full-fledged mission to develop them without invalidating those assumptions or testing those hypotheses is fraught with risks - even if we were to potentially 'develop' the product, chances are high that we will falter in addressing the right market, or meeting the expectations of the intended customer segment, or we might have made wrong assumptions about the product functionality, architecture, performance or even its pricing. So, I think we are talking about two different things here.

    That said, there are enough challenges with existing and legacy products. Most of them pertain to ongoing corrective maintenance and any event-driven preventive maintenance (e.g., enhancement, extensions, tech upgrades, etc.). These require a different approach compared to NPD (and I am not disputing that these are any 'easier' compared to NPD), and there is a rich body of knowledge on this subject. Perhaps I will address this in a separate talk in future.

  • PerumalManivannan Perumal Manivannan Several pointers here can be applied to complex products which are in the market for 10+ years, however how do we extend this to existing and even legacy product development. In my opinion they pose lot more challenges than new developments. I would love to see this presentation covers complex proucts which are in the market for a decade or so.. 8 months ago

  • RamonJarquio Ramon Jarquio Visit my website at http://www.ramonjarquio.com for the truth in engineering. Follow my lead to discover other truths. Correct input yields correct output. I am the only one in the world doing the ‘rotation of axes’ instead of the principal axes copied by everyone. We are now in the age of computers and approximate method is no longer correct and thus a new paradigm from the approximate to the exact method should be employed using basic mathematics, physics and the computer. There was no need to copy anyone using the approximate method. Tons of literature would have to be discarded. Remember the saying ‘seek ye the truth and the truth shall make you free’ that should be followed for enlightenment. 8 months ago
