As for I do some custom development (SaaS apps) at some moment I started thinking if I can turn it into a productized service (PS in what follows).
I checked many articles about it including

but none of them didn't give answers to my questions:
- If it's even possible to make PS for such non-linear thing as software development (SD), especially development of SaaS apps?
- How I could organize the process? It involves many different participants like product manager, developer, tester, designer and probably others. And the process itself is not as simple as accounting or designing a logo (sorry, Robin :)
- Unit economics? I have no vision of how much I would charge to have a good balance.
For example, I want to hire only good developers that I would pay at least $25-$35/hour. If I charge a client, say, $4,000/month I have to occupy a dev full time. But there is no profit at all. If I occupy a dev only part-time (for one project) it means that a customer doesn't have a full-time developer for this pretty high price.
So, what do you think about these problems?
