Product Development Processes
The product development process (PDP) brings a product to the marketplace from planning to production. While some organizations still describe their PDP in documents, leading engineering companies have achieved significant improvements by transitioning to a model-based PDP.
This model-based PDP approach has been realized using Stages in automotive, aerospace, medical device, transportation, and other engineering-driven industries. Five key practices are critical for the success of such a transformation.

WHITEPAPER: ORCHESTRATING AUTOMOTIVE PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT AND OPERATIONS
A Product Development Process model helps explain the dependences of all systems and people within the enterprise. It serves as a base to start modeling a department’s work (their silo) in detail, and to engage department members in process improvements. As benefits become obvious it encourages other departments to model the details of their processes, quickly identifying opportunities for the efficiency benefits.
WHITE PAPER: Safer Deployment of Automotive Innovations
This paper discusses how current industry challenges interconnect and have a common denominator: the processes used to manage the products across their life cycles.
