The World Chemical R&D division plays an integral role in the life cycle of a product. While the department usually is separate from sales, production and other divisions, the functions of these areas are related and often collaborates each other. The R&D division conducts a thorough study with an evaluation and testing of the need for the new product before the design begins to ensure it is a functional product that customers want to use. The new product is actually developed based on the requirements and ideas created during the research phase.
The R&D division regularly evaluates the products offered by the company to ensure they are still functional. The R&D team handles the quality checks on products created by the company.
The R&D division remains aware that the developed product must meet the product guidelines and any regulatory specifications.
