Many tools use a project-centric view of the design process. It’s common for users to start a new project in their requirements management tool, bug tracker, or design management tools.

This makes sense for designers who think of themselves as working on one project at a time. Companies, too, track costs, resources, and timelines on a project basis. However, there are drawbacks to this approach because of the silos it creates.

IP-Centric Management for Scalability, Collaboration, and Traceability

Project-centric management is easy to start but, because projects are isolated from one another in silos, scalability becomes more complex — and collaboration becomes difficult. Lack of a common centralized platform erodes or even breaks traceability.

Instead, an IP-centric management of the design environment allows for much simpler collaboration and full traceability — while also allowing scaling across the enterprise.

  • Hurdles imposed by project-centric management.
  • Breaking the design silo into IPs.
  • Building a scalable system.
  • Connecting project specific instances to the IP management system.
