In this article, we will explore a 6-point product development model for medical waste solutions that can help you break down the process into manageable pieces and ensure the end result meets your needs. Read on to learn more about how this model can streamline and simplify product development.
Whether you’re a company looking to develop a medical waste solution or an individual who needs one, developing any product, especially for medical waste treatment, can be a daunting task. Follow these six steps to derisk development by adding maximum value to the industry.
03. Define the Level of Medical Waste Industrialisation
The industrialisation of medical waste disposal is a process through which a local economy can develop its own infrastructure and legal framework for economically and environmentally sustainable waste management. This usually takes the form of a centralised system in which businesses, government and other stakeholders work together to develop an industry around the safe treatment and disposal of medical waste. The benefits of this approach are that it creates jobs, reduces environmental pollution, and helps to keep medical waste out of landfill sites. It also provides a much-needed service to the local community. In many cases, the industrialisation of medical waste disposal can be the key to developing a thriving local economy.
Once you have a clear understanding of the most popular methods of medical waste treatment and their regulatory framework, you can begin to assess the level of industrialisation in your local economy. To do this, you will need to gather data on the amount of medical waste produced, as well as the number of businesses that are engaged in medical waste treatment and disposal. You can also look at government policies and regulations related to medical waste management to get an idea of how seriously your community takes this issue.
After collecting all of this information, you should have a good sense of how much progress has been made towards Medical Waste Industrialisation in your local economy. If there is still a lot of work to be done, you may want to consider starting a business that provides medical waste treatment services. Alternatively, you could lobby for stricter government regulations on medical waste management, or work with existing businesses to help them improve their processes. Either way, by taking action on this issue, you can help.
04. Territory Segmentation & Profiling
The next step in using the 6-PPDM is to segment the market into territories. This can be done by looking at the needs of different customer groups or provinces/states and identifying which products are best suited to meet those needs. For example, one territory may be hospitals, while another may be mines or one province may have a more urgent need than another. Once the market has been segmented into territories or needs, the next step is to develop products that are tailored to the needs of each territory. This may involve developing new medical waste treatments or improving existing ones. For example, if the needs of hospitals are different from those of nursing homes, then different products may need to be developed for each group as set out by the WHO’s Medical Waste Cradle-to-Grave 0km.
