Management is an important part of Product Development. During the first phases of a project, Management always manages budgets and timing, both of the project as of the concept to be elaborated. Timing and budget are always clear deliverables recorded in the definition and specification phase. In the ideation phase, Management will bring along the external resources and competences that are needed to manage as well as the latest production techniques and evolutions. Within the realization phase, Management is responsible for the optimal materialisations of the technically elaborated concept. Sourcing can be done on a national and international scale.
