Tech partner role in software product Life Cycle

Product development Lifecycle involves the following stages: Plan (Idea and Concept), Design and Development, Testing, Launch, and Maintenance. As mentioned before, the Product Engineer should be included in the product development at a very early stage and contribute to every phase of it. Let’s look closer at how Product Team can make the product more customer-oriented on every stage of its development.

As market dynamics and customer change constantly, the Product Engineer can also introduce innovations to the existing products. This process includes the analysis of product gaps, its integration into the new market environment, and the adoption of the IT infrastructure. 

During the Design Process, Product Team plays an integral part in creating the most user-friendly and cost-effective product design possible. They research the usability of design and propose different solutions and modifications to it. Besides being user and budget-friendly, the design idea should also be unique and with a great concept. Product Team can offer changes at every stage of design building. UX research is essential as it helps make design user-friendly and ensure there’s a great functional interface. After the design is finally done, the development phase begins. When creating a software product, it should be divided into features, with the specifications and the usability test for each feature. Product Development Team should play the role of Project Manager in this case, as they need to decide on which functions are obligatory and which can be gotten rid of without harming the usability of the product.

After the development stage, the product should go through testing to detect functionality problems and to evaluate its quality. The process includes Web and Mobile testing to identify and solve stability, usability and other issues that can get in the way of the great user experience with the product.  Various methods can be used, including user experience research with surveys and focus groups. Product Team keeps track of how the product meets requirements outlined at the early stages and whether there are some errors made during development that should be fixed.

The final stage is to launch your product after everyone involved in its development gives a green light. Then the target audience should be informed about the product by advertising, press releases, public events, etc. Product Engineer is concerned about the users’ feedback on the product in order to find areas for improvement. Launch doesn’t mean the end of work for Product Engineer. Afterward, they need to regularly update the product, the system that it runs on, and fix the issues that may appear during its exploitation.
