Lever IQ Launch – Speed Up and Monitor your New Product Introduction Process

By Peter Demtscenko

Companies are always looking for ways to improve their product development process and shorten the cycle time. The first to the market wins the war. The process of introducing and monitoring the release of a new product usually spans different systems and data models and can be a tough task. Finding, identifying, organizing, releasing and monitoring the data and tasks across business groups is a challenge. At the detail level you must monitor the status of all the objects such as drawings, materials, BOMs and changes, and more as they are created, revised, and released. For this we need a simple total view of all the objects involved in the product release. The need for a simple way to see and track your product information is crucial.
