Product creation brings together all the activities required to create a technical product and any associated services. It covers the generation of initial business ideas through to the start of series production. In this area, you can draw inspiration from an idealized reference process, which is subdivided into main task areas (so-called cycles), task areas, process steps and activities
The reference process of product creation divides the activities into four cycles: Strategic product planning, Product development, Service development and Production system development, which represent the main task areas of product creation. Cross-sectional Processes complete the reference process.

Strategic product planning (1st cycle) describes the procedure from finding the success potential of the future to the promising development order. It includes the task areas of Potential identification, Product identification and Business planning.
Product development (2nd cycle) comprises the interdisciplinary product conception, the design and the elaboration in the respective specialist areas as well as the integration of the results into an overall solution.
Service development (3rd cycle) aims to convert a service idea into a market service. Service development comprises the task areas of Service conception, Service Planning, and Service integration.
The starting point of the Production system development (4th cycle) is the conception of the production system. Other areas of responsibility are work planning, production system integration, implementation planning and implementation monitoring.
In addition to the technical tasks, which are structured in four cycles Product creation also includes overarching, mostly project-specific process steps and activities. Examples of this are risk management and configuration management.
