					Introduction to the Template
Instructions: This template serves as a tool in creating a product development schedule. It is
designed for the user to easily identify, define, and categorize project development stages.

These stages are to be used in defining specific deliverables, timetable, assigned resources and
updating task status. Filled in examples will be highlighted in Yellow.

Specifically, the stages available in this template are as follows:

Initial Study
For initial phase, the business experts of Provider and Client identify the bank’s business
requirements that are to be fulfilled by the products offered by the Provider.

It culminates in developing system design specification documents. Define the different
documents that are to be produced for each of the identified program/module deliverables

Development
This stage covers the actualization of functional and technical specifications into a working
system.

Divide the requirements into different sections and allocate to specific resources.

Testing
This stage covers the quality assurance stage.

Specify the different testing phases applied in the project.

Description: This Product Development Schedule is a spreadsheet designed to help companies create a schedule for new product development. This form can be used to define specific deliverables, create a timetable, assign resources, and update task statuses. The schedule is broken down into eight stages: initial study, requirements analysis, systems design, development, testing, implementation, production, and maintenance. Companies or project managers can use this template to create a timeline and assign tasks in order to help ensure that a new product is completed, tested, and released on schedule.
