A critical component of an effective Enterprise Innovation Management (EIM) system is the ability to manage the workflows of an unlimited number of idea submissions. You need to do more than collect and view the submitted ideas. You need a structure to develop innovation from ideas to marketable products. Ezassi’s idea management workflow component provides a very robust functionality with easy-to-use structure that allows you to manage every step of the process, from initial idea review stages through to product lifecycle management (PML) stages.
Unlike other workflow products, our system keeps control of workflow establishment and customization where it belongs – with the client user. With our system, you can create unlimited workflows, depending on your internal structure. You can have a workflow for each product line or category, using your stage titles and customizing each one with the assigned team of reviewers. Our system is intuitive and highly flexible:
These customization options remove obstacles, such jumping through unnecessary hoops or creating unneeded documents, which exist simply to satisfy steps in a single organization-wide workflow. Instead, it allows you to develop logical workflows for specific products or projects.
Workflow integration with Product Lifecycle Management
The Ezassi workflow easily integrates with a variety of PLM software options. It also manages multiple workflows, so every project receives the attention it deserves. The workflows can include every step of the process, including:
Every workflow can include as many steps and stages as you choose, from fabrication to packaging, to assure that nothing is missed as you transform an idea into reality.
Dashboard and Graphics
The Ezassi dashboard allows you to assign and monitor workflows with a simple click of a mouse. When selecting a specific workflow, a timeline appears that shows you where the product is in the workflow, including steps that have been completed as well as the current status. With the workflow component of the dashboard, the status of any project is literally at your fingertips.
