Modified Stage-Gate: A Product Development Process

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


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.
