Supply Chain

NPI - Stages and Gates

Manage your innovation stream with ownership and accountability. Tracking the status and driving to deadlines through the innovation cycle is always a challenge. Utilizing stages and gates is a best practice. This model allows the user to track individual projects as well as the entire portfolio from conception to launch.

The model has a built-in configuration engineer to enable the admin to choose steps within the stage to fit your process. These can be customized into standard workflows, e.g., a completely new innovation or a simple model extension. Throughout the NPI process, the model helps track and document critical decisions and drive accountability to a timeline. Additionally, this model can be integrated with other models such as innovation forecasting.
