Planning and management of the process for developing a product can be done with help of product development tools. Such tools help you do everything required for generating a product concept, testing it, making necessary evaluations, producing a prototype and commercializing the final product version. They allow you to plan, schedule and manage tasks and time necessary for producing a new product.
Here are examples of tools that can be used to support planning and management of the development process:
- Templates and Samples. Using templates helps you develop any document. Samples help you organize product prototyping and make evaluations.
- To-do Lists and Worksheets. These tools help you assign jobs and tasks to engineers, testers, developers and other personnel who can view their assignments in to-do lists.
- Schedules and Calendars. These tools let you practice effective time management through creating employee schedules, calendars and roadmaps that help define working hours.
- Reports and Work Summaries. You can use these tools to review the work done and compare it against expectations listed in your development agenda.
With help of task management software you can successfully use all these tools. For example, VIP Task Manager features Task Tree view that lets design templates, to-do lists and worksheets.
