Output from the 1998 Product Development Value Stream Workshop: A Framework for Understanding Information Flow in the Product Development Process
Author(s)McManus, Hugh; Warmkessel, Joyce
The descriptions below and the attached diagrams are outputs of the 1998 LAI Product Development Focus Team workshop on the Value Chain in Product Development. A working group at that workshop was asked to model the product development process: in terms of the phases of product development and their interfaces, boundaries and outputs. Their work has proven to be generally useful to LAI researchers and industry members, and so is formalized here.
