  • TITLE: Research on Coordination Strategy of New Product Development Teams Based on Task Overlapping

    AUTHORS: Ting Lu

    KEYWORDS: Coordination Strategy, Ability Level Function, Task Overlap, Rework Function

    JOURNAL NAME: Open Journal of Business and Management, Vol.7 No.2, April 19, 2019

    ABSTRACT: The paper took the most upstream and downstream task in enterprise new product development as the most typical scenario. Then deeply analyzed the task characteristics and theoretically refined the causes and processes of task overlap and coordination. On this basis, this paper proposed the upstream and downstream ability level functions. The down stream’s rework function was given based on the influence of the random modify of the upstream. Furthermore, a coordination model is constructed in order to minimize the total development time. Correspondingly, the optimal start time, coordination times and coordination time interval are calculated. The effectiveness of the model is verified by an enterprise example. The paper found that coordination can effectively reduce downstream rework. The characteristics of development tasks and downstream task interdependence have important effects on the optimal coordination strategy.
