Allows companies to launch enterprise-wide new product introductions on-time and on-budget.
ENOVIA Life Sciences Accelerator for Product Introduction
Improve operational excellence by providing executive visibility across all projects and instituting clear accountability across project teams.
ENOVIA Life Sciences Accelerator for Product Introduction makes it possible for companies to institutionalize its best practices for management of all product introduction projects for a company’s product portfolio.
This collaborative project management solution dramatically increases the productivity and coordination of globally distributed users by executing projects activities with real-time information that updates automatically through direct links to tasks, documents, deliverables and other data sources to ensure completion of Design Control deliverables that automatically tracks the resulting Design History File (DHF). These automatic updates allow project managers to focus on high value activities rather than tracking down status.
Project managers are provided with advanced visual project tracking reports to maximize management visibility and control to improve time-to-market and regulatory compliance within product introduction projects while maximizing efficiency and reducing collaboration costs.
- Deliver Market-Leading Products
- Drive Responsive Execution
- Achieve Lean Quality and Compliance
Business GoalsManagers can define a business goal hierarchy to help identify which projects to approve and fund based on how they impact strategy.
Advanced Resource ManagementProject managers can define project resource plans over a project time line in either weekly or monthly time intervals which are submitted to functional group managers for fulfillment. Each submitted resource request identifies the business skills to insure that the right people are assigned to the project resource request. . Functional group managers have real-time visibility to all submitted requests in order to assign available people with their organization or to even reject a request. Functional managers can also leverage a number of resource planning reports to help increase resource utilization, eliminate bottlenecks and improve resource assignment decisions.
Management DashboardsManagement can leverage advanced visual project tracking dashboards to maximize visibility and control of all product introduction projects. The “swim lane” report provide a birds-eye view of each project organized according to functional responsibilities. The “stages gate” report allows managers to drill down into sections of the project and to the individual tasks and deliverables.
Project TemplatesProject managers can develop process standards and enhance predictability by driving repetitive project execution throughout the organization. The project template consists of work breakdown structures defined by responsible roles, folder structures, questionnaires, document templates, and bookmarks.
Work Breakdown StructureProject managers can decompose complex product development activities into smaller manageable sub-projects. Project leaders can then define schedules to organize global project teams into phase gate activities that take into consideration assigned project member’s role and non-working days. ENOVIA Life Sciences Accelerator for Product Introduction supports all phases of development, including the ideation phase in which organizations evaluate the likely value and feasibility of all potential new projects. Once each concept is approved, it is updated to a formal project and can be planned in detail. ENOVIA Life Sciences Accelerator for Product Introduction provides a bi-directional integration to Microsoft Project for project managers that prefer using a Microsoft Project user interface for editing schedule information.
Task DeliverablesAs tasks are assigned and being worked, task deliverables should be associated and managed in the context of the task. As a deliverable is promoted through its lifecycle, the system automatically updates the task status. After the tasks are completed, project folders store and categorize the deliverables for access controls and increased visibility. To keep task deliverables on schedule, project leaders can configure automatic reminders of upcoming or late tasks that project members will receive in their company email.
Product Line ManagementENOVIA Life Sciences Accelerator for Product Introduction organizes and manages a company's product portfolio and executes development projects related to the planning and introduction of future products. Product lines and model hierarchies organize a company’s family of products. Model hierarchies represent specific products available to customers. Product managers can associate product releases with development projects and organize them into portfolios. A portfolio provides visibility into a product line’s road map, product release dependencies and a real time status of strategic project milestones to share with other organizations.
Schedule Product BuildsPrototype and production builds represent key milestones of the product development process. Multiple builds can be identified and planned for a particular product, and then their completion can be tracked through the project schedule.
Project ContentAll project content and deliverables are managed and stored securely within controlled and uncontrolled folder and subfolder structures. Security is established on a per project basis. Project owners and project leads determine individual access rights. Within a project, each folder and file maintains additional levels of security. Lifecycle controls establish folder content baselines as a means of measuring project performance and historical references. Team members can establish a single environment for managing and sharing all project information—not just documents. By subscribing to document events, members can become informed immediately as changes and additions occur. Reports provide a consolidated list of project-related content from either the work breakdown structure or from the folder structure.
Design History File and Product Dossier TrackingProject automatically tracks the activities and deliverables to generate the resulting Design History File (DHF) in accordance to U.S. FDA regulation 21 CFR 820.30(j). Project deliverables can be viewed according to a number of configurable criteria to show only those deliverables that are most important to you. The Design History File provides dynamic links to related documents and data for improved visibility into related business processes.
Team CollaborationA project manager can institute standard reviews for project members using routes or workflows to circulate tasks, projects and files. The entire project team can be kept informed of important project information with online discussions. All team members can subscribe, view and comment on the original discussion topic or any of the subsequent responses.
Issue / Risk ManagementIssues are real incidents, inquiries or problems that impact a project negatively, and risks are anything that can potentially impact a project negatively. Issue management provides a context for capturing, tracking and closing issues in the context of a project. Issues are identified, captured, classified and assigned to project members for resolution. Risk management enables project teams to identify, quantify, analyze and mitigate project risks. During the analysis process, risks need to be assessed and quantified in two dimensions. These two dimensions are impact and probability with ranges from 1-5. These dimension values help minimize these potential negative impacts by determining each risk priority and clarifying which project risks need mitigation.
Project Meeting TraceabilityProject or program managers can capture meeting details to maintain artifacts for historical references. Managers can define meetings, and track who was invited and who actually attended. Agenda topics can be added to meetings with time durations allocated for each topic and associated document attachments for discussion. Issues that need further follow up and recorded decisions are stored as an outcome of the meeting.
