"Modified Stage-Gate: A Product Development Process" by Nader Ale Ebrahim

Modified Stage-Gate: A Product Development Process

Nader Ale Ebrahim, Department of Engineering Design and Manufacture, Faculty of Engineering, University of Malaya

Abstract

In today’s dynamic marketplace, manufacturing companies are under
strong pressure to introduce new products for long-term survival with
their competitors. Increased competition and reduced product life cycles
put force upon companies to develop new products faster. In response to
these pressing needs, there should be some new approach compatible in
flexible circumstances. This presentation presents a solution based on
the popular Stage-Gate system, which is closely linked with virtual team
approach. Virtual teams can provide a platform to advance the
knowledge-base in a company and thus to reduce time-to-market. The
presentation describes all the major aspects of new product development
(NPD), NPD process and its relationship with virtual teams, Stage-Gate
system finally presents a modified Stage-Gate system to cope up with the
changing needs.

Abstract

Mobile learning is an emerging trend
that brings many advantages to distributed learners, enabling them to
achieve collaborative learning, in which the virtual teams are usually
built to engage multiple learners working together towards the same
pedagogical goals in online courses. However, the socio-technical
mechanisms to enhance teamwork performance are lacking. To meet this
gap, we adopt the social computing to affiliate learners' behaviors and
offer them computational choices to build a better collaborative
learning context. Combining the features of the cloud environment, we
have identified a learning flow based on Kolb team learning experience
to realize this approach. Such novel learning flow can be executed by
our newly designed system, Teamwork as a Service (TaaS), in conjunction
with the cloud-hosting learning management systems. Following this
learning flow, learners benefit from the functions provided by
cloud-based services when cooperating in a mobile environment, being
organized into cloud-based teaching strategies namely 'Jigsaw
Classroom', planning and publishing tasks, as well as rationalizing task
allocation and mutual supervision. In particular, we model the social
features related to the collaborative learning activities, and introduce
a genetic algorithm approach to grouping learners into appropriate
teams with two different team formation scenarios. Experimental results
prove our approach is able to facilitate teamwork, while learners'
capabilities and preferences are taken into consideration. In addition,
empirical evaluations have been conducted to show the improvement of
collaborative learning brought by TaaS in real university level courses.

Description
Abstract: In the competitive market, virtual teams represent a growing response to the need
for fasting time-to-market, low-cost and rapid solutions to complex organizational problems.
Virtual teams enable organizations to pool the talents and expertise of employees and non-
employees by eliminating time and space barriers. Nowadays, companies are heavily
investing in virtual team to enhance their performance and competitiveness. Despite virtual
teams growing prevalence, relatively little is known about this new form of team. Hence ...

Abstract

In
today’s dynamic marketplace, manufacturing companies are under strong
pressure to introduce new products for long-term survival with their
competitors. Nevertheless, every company cannot cope up progressively or
immediately with the market requirements due to knowledge dynamics
being experienced in the competitive milieu. Increased competition and
reduced product life cycles put force upon companies to develop new
products faster. In response to these pressing needs, there should be
some new approach compatible in flexible circumstances. This paper
presents a solution based on the popular Stage-Gate system, which is
closely linked with virtual team approach. Virtual teams can provide a
platform to advance the knowledge-base in a company and thus to reduce
time-to-market. This article introduces conceptual product development
architecture under a virtual team umbrella. The paper describes all the
major aspects of new product development (NPD), NPD process and its
relationship with virtual teams, Stage-Gate system finally presents a
modified Stage-Gate system to cope up with the changing needs. It also
provides the guidelines for the successful implementation of virtual
teams in new product development.

Visibility And Citation Impact 33984 120606 1 PB - Nader Ale Ebrahim
The
number of publications is the first criteria for assessing a researcher
output. However, the main measurement for author productivity is the
number of citations, and citations are typically related to the paper's
visibility. In this paper, the relationship between article visibility
and the number of citations is investigated. A case study of two
researchers who are using publication marketing tools confirmed that the
article visibility will greatly improve the citation impact...
