A Step-by-Step Guide to Product Development at Coda Plastics

Posted on 27th July 2016

Our product development team at Coda Plastics Ltd have helped hundreds of inventors and companies take their ideas off the drawing board and into the shops. From the ingenious Hessiclip to the labour-saving Jeyes Fluid Smart Brush Packs, our team has created some of the most innovative and exciting plastic products on the market today. If you have a great idea but are unsure how to take it to the next level, check out our step-by-step guide to product development.


1. Have a great idea.

This is the one part you are really on your own for. Most great design ideas are the solution to a specific problem or improve on a previous design's approach in a specific way.


2. Chat with our team.

Our knowledgeable product design team will work with you to understand your design intent and establish the life cycle of your product, its purpose, and how it will be applied by its intended user.


3. Protect your intellectual property.

We can put you in touch with registered patent attorneys who will ensure that your intellectual property is adequately protected. This may take the form of design registration, patent or trademark protection.  


4. Conduct virtual tests.

There are all sorts of tests we can perform virtually, cutting out the need for expensive and potentially wasteful real-life tests. Using the latest software, we can find out how your product reacts to stress, strain and deformation and make any necessary tweaks before going into production.


5. See a virtual demonstration.

Our design team can provide you with a 3D model animation of the final design.


6. Finalise your packaging design.

We can provide you with high quality images of various designs for your packaging: branded, coloured and labelled. 


7. Manufacture your product.

With the look, feel and functionality of your product and its packaging finalised, we are ready to go into production.

We aim to take the worry out of product development. With your intellectual property rights secure and our experts in product and packaging design on hand to assist you every step of the way, you can get on with marketing your product to the companies who will be stocking it and its end user.
