Abstract: A high quality product development process is a critical success factor for product innovations. Many companies have developed process models to support the management of product innovation processes. The defined management process models are not always flexible enough and sufficiently easy to use to ensure their regular usage in companies. This study utilises the possibilities of internet technologies to build a system to promote product innovation management (PIM), to support the use of management process models and to meet the defined development requirements for PIM. Our paper describes the developed system and clarifies its possibilities, advantages and limitations. The system includes different process models, it assists in the selection of an appropriate process model, and provides instructions for the implementation of the different stages in the PIM process. The developed system provides companies with a framework for building their own management systems.
