Ever wonder what goes into making your own product? As an assistant project manager I’ve helped clients in all different stages of the process. Whether it be a handbag, dog bed or anything in between, designing and producing a new product involves a lot of work with a giant pay off. Below I outline each of those steps to help you get an idea just how much work it is.
1) The TEch Pack
When you have a solid idea of what your product will look like, it is time to make a tech pack. These can be based off of sketches you’ve done or they can come straight from your head to the computer.
Tech packs contain the exact measurements of each component of your product—whether that be the size of the snaps you’re using or amount of space between the notches on a strap, all of it needs to be measured to ensure production runs smoothly.
