Abstract

While process improvement projects have varying parameters (e.g. goals, timeline, etc.), there is a basic structure to planning such projects. Yet, there are few planning aids, and transferring the institutional knowledge from one project to the next one is difficult. The project classification framework proposed here aims at assisting project planners, who are faced with the task to organize a process improvement project, to categorize their projects according to the optimization goal, the process granularity and the project novelty in order to show them if relevant knowledge is available, and to assist them during the selection of appropriate activities to achieve the general goal and of adequate methods to perform these activities.

Keywords: product development, classification framework, project classification, process improvement
