17 Gate model Discovery Stage: A quick investigation of the project. Scoping: Basic project parameters are determined. Build business case: A much more detailed investigation leading to a business case, including project definition and justification, and a project plan. Development: The actual design and development of the new product. Testing & validation: Tests or trials in the marketplace, lab and plant to verify and validate the proposed new product, and its marketing and production. Launch: Commercialization—beginning of full production, marketing and selling.
The benefits of Stage-Gate well organized innovation provide competitive advantage Accelerate product development with the product life cycle study. Increase success chance of new products. Helps to guide the project to the right path or objective. Provides overview and outlook Cross functional Can be combined with other performance metrics - net present value.
