Before designing a product, project, process or service, some good questions must be asked:
- What is the goal of this product?
- To whom will it be useful?
- What are the needs of these users and other stakeholders?
- What is the cost target?
Needs analysis (also known as Function analysis) is used to identify the functions a product must do to fulfill needs, organize these functions in a function tree, set the functions into a hierarchy, characterize the performance expected from each function with a level and a flexibility.
No design project should start without this approach which is one of the best project management practices to determine needs.
