Individul Project: NPD-NET
Component 4:
Integration and Regional Adaptation of NPD Roadmap
Kick-off meeting
Region of Central Macedonia – URENIO Research Unit
Thessaloniki 3-4 June 2004
NPD Roadmap
NPD Roadmap Basics
New Product Development Roadmap.
Is a tool that can help companies and organizations to
successfully develop new products or upgrade existing
ones through a series of logical steps, starting from the
process of idea generation and ending at the launch of
the product into a market. This kind of roadmap is
usually based on the model developed by Dr. Robert G
Cooper and it is known as Stage – Gate Process.
NPD Roadmap
Component 4 Goals
•Enrichment of the existing NPD Roadmap by Lead
Partner.
•Preparation and adaptation of the new NPD Roadmap
interface according to the needs of NPD-NET.
•Insertion of material of local interest (local success
stories, best practices, existing NPD support services)
by partners.
•Web development of the finalized form of the NPD
Roadmap.
Existing Roadmap Structure

L5
Existing NPD Roadmap has 5 “Levels” and 4 “Assessment points”.
The available Levels are:
L1: Idea Generation,
L2: Idea Selection and Concept Development,
L3: Product Development,
L4: Product Testing and Validation and
L5: Product Launch.
Each Level contains the problem definition that a company faces at the
particular point of NPD, one or more than one solution to the problem,
available tools and methodologies to tackle the problem, case studies, best
practices and existing resources and references.
Each Assessment (A1,2,3,4) contains a series of questions regarding the
work done in the previous Level. Depending on the answers given a Go –
Kill or Hold the NPD process recommendation is given.

More tools and methodologies centered in a more
practical than theoretical approach to be added in all
Levels.
Practical / real local applications of parts or of the whole
roadmap in specific areas or industries to be added by
the partners.

Things to Note on the New NPD
Roadmap Structure
Human Resources Management, Outsourcing, Supply Chain management
and Benchmarking were inserted in original Roadmap in Level 5. In the
new Roadmap the 1st three will have applications in all Levels. The 4th
one will be applied optionally before starting Level 1 and after completion
of Level 5.
Some of the tools mentioned already exist and some are to be added in
the next period of time. But as the work of component 4 progresses more
tools / techniques are to be added depending on the needs and actual
applications of the Roadmap on the Local and Regional Level.
Component 3 information on both Supply and Demand side can alter the
structure of parts or Levels or whole Levels of the Roadmap.
All existing Assessments plus the one that will be added at the end of
Level 5 will be altered so that they can reflect and represent the new
Roadmap structure.
