Research & Development
ISUN Kitchen & Homegoods Co. Ltd is a trading company, but we keep developing new products with our cooperation partner factories yearly. We have the professional experienced engineer which always worked at factory to develop new products. The research and development department plays an integral role in the life cycle of a product. While the department usually is separate from sales, production and other divisions, the functions of these areas are related and often require collaboration.
The R&D department had the following functions and powers:
New Product Research
Before a new product is developed, the research and development department conducts a thorough study to support the project. The research phase includes determining product specifications, production costs and a production time line. The research also is likely to include an evaluation of the need for the product before the design begins to ensure it is a functional. So our ISUN R&D engineers always need to attend the carton show to investigate the marking need and search the marketing new material.
New Product Development
The research paves the way for the development phase. This is the time when the new product is actually developed based on the requirements and ideas created during the research phase. The developed product must meet the product guidelines and any regulatory specifications. Our engineer will work closely with factory R&D for the whole developing process.
Existing Product Updates
Existing products of the company also fall under the scope of research and development. Our engineer of R&D regularly evaluates the products with factory to ensure they are still functional. Potential changes or upgrades are considered or customer want to change or update functions. In some cases, the research and development department is asked to resolve a problem with an existing product that malfunctions or to find a new solution if the manufacturing process must change.
In ISUN Kitchen & HomeGoods, the research and development team also handles the quality checks on products created. The department has an intimate knowledge of the requirements and specifications of a particular project. This allows team members to ensure the products meet those standards so the other department esp. QC department understood the quality standard. Our R&D engineer also the leader of the QC department which take role in the quality tolerance and standard setting for all new products.
