It is not a easy task to introduce your first product in the market, specially when you are not aware of the situation. I believe in scientific approach instead of just following the gut. So here are some of the spreadsheets that will enable you to make wise decisions and understand the risks involved in while launching along with feasibility,simulation and decision making process.
The first part of this sheet is description and i would suggest you to go through it as you will be able to understand how things work in it.The another tab of financial analysis will help you determine whether that product will be profitable after reducing costs and other non performing money outflows. The third one is the development process sheet where other phases are taken care of such as the technical feasibility and the manufacturbility along with marketability, then there is a simulation which is actually a result of all the data that you have filled in and it will suggest whether your new product launch is going to fly..This very sheet will help you do a lot. I am really happy that i found this, thanks to the author.
