Key Points A Product Development Proposal Should Cover

A product development proposal is the start of your relationship with your design consultant. A well thought out and comprehensive proposal normally is an indicator that the design team has thought through your issues and will deliver a quality solution. Here are some key points that you should look for:

Engineering is about tradeoffs:

  • Cost
  • Performance
  • Schedule
  • Volume targets

Proposal Should Include:

  • Problem Statement
  • Required Information
  • Project Deliverables
  • Stages with dates
  • References

A well-written product development proposal typically includes:

  • Problem Statement should include the issues and tradeoffs involved with your project based on your discussions with the consultant
  • Outline the project deliverables
  • Information and key decisions needed by the consultant from you to perform the project
  • Outline of the anticipated project stages and completion dates
  • References from past assignments that are similar to your work

The written proposals should tell you:

  • Does the consultant clearly understand the assignment?
  • Did the consultant do their homework?
  • Did they cover the specifics of your problem and issues?
  • Are all the items discussed covered in the proposal?

An example proposal can be found on our website at http://www.volersystems.com/v-2009/example-proposal/.
