Critical Path and Workflow
How do you gain visibility of all of your products as they progress through NPD?
A major retailer approached Click-PLM to help them achieve visibility of their thousands of product lines as they progressed their NPD critical paths. Previously all product development had been managed at a category level, which led to difficulty in viewing the product pipeline as a whole.
Using their in-house SharePoint technology, we devised a solution that enabled the Categories to retain ownership and visibility of their products, whilst simultaneously capturing all product data from all categories in a single platform. Powerful reporting enables real-time visibility of product progression, delays and workload whilst the system's workflow engine ensures on-time management and error reduction.
Some of the benefits include:
All reports pulled from one source and therefore one version of the truth
Automated reporting saves teams admin time in cross checking
SharePoint system so teams can access remotely
