...1 SERVICE CONCEPTION Services are all around us, people use service every day. The growth in the service economy is widely recognized and in-creasingly contributes to the economic development of many regions. Services are diverse and often been difficult to de-fine. Most frequently, a service has been described as an act, a process and a performance. Services are also defined as economic activities that create “added value” and provide benefits to customers. In the past, selling products are separate from selling service. When consumers bought food, clothes or car, they simply bought the tangible things they wanted and did not have any added value. Since the competition is stronger and fiercer, it’s hard to separate product from its service. If companies only sell their goods to customers without any attached services, they will lose their customer easily and failure is inevitable. For example, when buying computer, they might be attracted by the store where looks professional and they can get full in-formation as well as guidance from helpful staff about prod-ucts, a hotline service for installing the programs and so on. Company must pay attention to it and invest more on distri-bution channel to provide more good service to customers. Service business offers intangible value to buyers rather than tangible goods. It includes a wide range of industries such as hospitality, tourism, art, healthcare, education and so on. “Some service such as charities, arts operate in......

Service Design a direct, positive link between typicality and patronage intentions. D 2001 Elsevier Science Inc. All rights reserved. Keywords: Schema; Consumer affect; Shopping value Recently, research has demonstrated the key role played by emotional experiences in explaining store choice and consumer– environment interactions and reactions (Bitner, 1992; Baker and Cameron, 1996). Design elements including a store’s employees, prices, lighting, scents, product assortment, background music, and crowdedness influence the affect experienced in a service environment (Eroglu and Machleit, 1990; Hui and Bateson, 1991; Hui et al., 1997; Baker et al., 1994; Darden ´ and Babin, 1994; Dube and Morgan, 1996; Spangenberg et al., 1996; Yoo et al., 1998). Likewise, it is clear that mood or affective tone can influence shopping intentions, spending, quality perceptions, satisfaction, and value (Swinyard, 1993; Babin and Darden, 1996; Babin et al., 1994; Hui et al., 1997). However, less research acknowledges the fact that consumers enter the patronage process with expectations regarding what makes up a specific type of service venue, and that accumulated knowledge about these environments is represented and processed holistically in the form of cognitive categorization mechanisms (Alba and Hutchinson, * Corresponding author. Tel.: +1-601-266-4629; fax: +1-266-4630. E-mail addresses: (B.J. Babin), (L. Babin). 1987). Indeed, the amalgamation of salient......

Product Design

...The Design Process The design process is the transformation of an idea, needs, or wants by consumers or the marketplace at large, into a product that satisfies these needs. This is usually accomplished by adventurous people that are willing to take it on. Sometimes an engineer will be involved on some levels but not always.  Design is basically a problem solving exercise. The design of a new product consists of the following stages: Design Brief Product Design Specifications Concept Design Testing Detail Design Manufacturing and Further Testing Refinement and Sales The development of a new product may also require the development of a prototype to prove that new technologies work before committing resources to full-scale manufacture. We can assist you with some of the prototype design if you need this help. If you do desire to develop a prototype you should have the product tested by as many people as you can possibly work with. Be sure to have a non-disclosure agreement with people that you are unsure of. You may need to contact an attorney for the best protection. The traditional view of the design to manufacture process is that it is a sequential process; the outcome of one stage is passed on to the next stage. This tends to lead to iteration in the design. I.e. having to go back to an earlier stage to correct mistakes. This can make products more expensive and delivered to the marketplace late. A better approach is for the designer to consider the stages......

...Design of goods and services at nestle As consumers become increasingly demanding of more social and environmental sustainability efforts from their favorite brands, Nestlé is one multinational that is responding in kind. The challenges for the world’s largest food company, however, are as complicated as the company’s long and tangled supply chain. Nestle is turning to lifecycle assessments, the latest in eco-design software and more sustainable innovations across the company’s operations and supply chain. From agriculture to packaging, Nestlé now competes with other leading consumer goods companies such as Unilever and P&G that are mitigating their impact on the environment and society while still providing value to consumers. Now Nestlé is in the midst of a massive reset as it reevaluates everything from its energy portfolio to the impact of water scarcity on its suppliers across the globe. Ecodex Nestlé’s sustainability and product development teams start with software programs such as Ecodex, which allows users to evaluate products’ impacts based on a variety of hypothetical criteria. By simulating changes in a design, recipe or manufacturing process, or even geographic shifts in sourcing, a Nestlé employee can view that proposed redesigned product’s ramifications on climate change, energy consumption, land use and effects on local water supplies and waste streams. The tool uses information specific to the food and beverage industry to provide rapid and......
