WHERE CONSUMER PRODUCT AND PACKAGING DESIGN TESTING FIT IN

The product life cycle (PLC) defines and describes the stages a product goes through from when it was first thought of until it finally is removed from the market. The product life cycle usually guides decisions based on the type of product testing work that must be done,
specific to the marketing objectives for each phase.
