The product development Process (2)

  1. 1. The Product Development Process Cosmetics, Toiletries, Insecticides, Household Cleaning Products Lecture II
  2. 2. The Product Development Process <ul><li>The great reality in the product </li></ul><ul><li>development process is that </li></ul><ul><li>novelty and inventiveness is not </li></ul><ul><li>important. It is the ability of the </li></ul><ul><li>new product to satisfy identified </li></ul><ul><li>wants of targeted consumer groups. </li></ul>
  3. 3. The Product Development Process <ul><li>Thus, The product development </li></ul><ul><li>process in most cases is really about </li></ul><ul><li>creating new story-lines to excite </li></ul><ul><li>consumers into making particular </li></ul><ul><li>choices. </li></ul>

  53. 72. Incistern Blue Block <ul><li>Development Criteria </li></ul><ul><li>(Developing Product Specifications) </li></ul><ul><li>Must perform same as market leader </li></ul><ul><li>and be 25% cheaper </li></ul><ul><li>Thus evaluate existing products in the </li></ul><ul><li>Market </li></ul>
  54. 73. Incistern Blue Block <ul><li>Evaluation of Existing Products </li></ul><ul><li>Which product is market leader (ie, product most consumers prefer) </li></ul><ul><li>How does the market leader perform? </li></ul><ul><li>- efficacy - colour, surfactant cleaning, </li></ul><ul><li>product longevity </li></ul>
  55. 74. Incistern Blue Block <ul><li>Which is the most important criteria to the </li></ul><ul><li>customer? </li></ul><ul><li>- In this case product longevity </li></ul>
  56. 75. Incistern Blue Block <ul><li>Product Specification </li></ul><ul><li>An incistern blue block that can last for 400 </li></ul><ul><li>Flushes </li></ul>
  57. 76. Incistern Blue Block <ul><li>Evaluation of product formula </li></ul><ul><li>In this case product formula and production </li></ul><ul><li>process cannot be separated. </li></ul><ul><li>Two products on the market, both produced </li></ul><ul><li>and formulated differently </li></ul>
  58. 77. Incistern Blue Block <ul><li>Thus the important question in the case of this </li></ul><ul><li>product is how is each product in the market </li></ul><ul><li>manufactured? </li></ul>
  59. 78. Incistern Blue Block <ul><li>Evaluate Each Product to determine </li></ul><ul><li>production process </li></ul>
  60. 81.

  66. 89. Probable Jeyes Bloo Formulation <ul><li>Major Surfactant: Sodium Dodecyl Sulphate </li></ul><ul><li>Secondary Surfactants: nil </li></ul><ul><li>Dissipation controllers: guar or xanthan gum </li></ul><ul><li>Dye: Acid blue no. 9 powder </li></ul>
  67. 90. Formulation Issues <ul><li>Dust control </li></ul><ul><li>Clogging of ribbon blender </li></ul><ul><li>Jamming of plodder </li></ul><ul><li>Thus small amount of moisture must be added </li></ul><ul><li>to formulation </li></ul>
  68. 91. System Comparison <ul><li>Both formulation systems have similar unit production costs </li></ul><ul><li>Extrusion system more costly because of PVA wrapping system </li></ul><ul><li>Harpic system is a batching system, whereas Jeyes Bloo system is continuous </li></ul><ul><li>Performance of extrusion block, slightly better than blended block </li></ul>

  73. 96. Manufacturing System Design <ul><li>Most difficult issue was to design a filler that would not clog up </li></ul><ul><li>Had to handle logistics of blister movement </li></ul><ul><li>Took numerous adjustments and two total redesigns of filling head to get it correct </li></ul><ul><li>Slight adjustments made to formula to achieve better flow </li></ul>
  74. 98. Launch <ul><li>No test market </li></ul><ul><li>Sales achieved almost 3,000,000 units per annum </li></ul><ul><li>Sold in Australia, New Zealand, New Guinea, Singapore, Fiji, Hong Kong and Taiwan </li></ul><ul><li>Still in market after 16 years </li></ul>

  80. 105. Efficacy Testing <ul><li>With many products we have to design special efficacy tests, where methodology will be accepted by regulatory bodies </li></ul>
  81. 107. Product Registration <ul><li>As an air freshener the product does not require registration </li></ul><ul><li>Recent changes in regulation requires the product to be registered as an insect repellent </li></ul><ul><li>Criteria: claims made </li></ul>
