New Product Development (NPDI) is a strategic part of the growth strategy for consumer product goods companies. It is a very content centric and deadline driven process. This article describes how IBM® FileNet® P8 can be used to implement a sub-process of NPDI called artwork change management. The article describes how the following parts of the sample implementation were implemented: creating a process flow, using an eForm to launch the process flow, and building a Web interface using Enterprise Content Management (ECM) Widgets. In addition, it describes two other tasks required for this solution: providing an overview of outstanding requests, and implementing an ad-hoc review process. The objective is to provide you with some insights on how to pull together elements of the ECM portfolio to implement your own solutions.
