Managing the Pipeline

Pipeline management is the process of controlling the initiation of projects and managing the flow of projects through the product development pipeline. Effective project portfolio management and project resource planning and management is the starting point to preventing common problems with too many new product development or product upgrade projects in the pipeline. Lean product development practices suggest establishing a cadence or tempo with the release or initiation of projects.

PD-Trak provides enterprise project Resource Planning and scheduling tools to determine how many projects can be accomplished with the available resources. Use this tool to determine when resources are available to initiate projects or consider what resource actions are required to start a product development project and then monitor the flow of projects.
