Understand how global product development and design outsourcing require more from product lifecycle management. Hear firsthand the implications of distributed development to program management, quality, accountability, tools, security, practices/processes and interoperability. Several cases of collaborative development between Western companies and their Asian partners will be highlighted during this presentation including current best practices and a roadmap for next steps. Find out about metrics currently being used in global product development, how they may need to be tweaked and what new metrics should be considered. Ideas about improving performance will be suggested followed by an opportunity to ask questions and engage in discussion. You will leave this session with several general frameworks for the entire lifecycle of partner/supplier integration starting with supplier selection, collaboration through delivery.
