Kurzfassung englisch:
considered as generating, evaluating and developing ideas in order to create new products, processes
or services in a short period of time. Comparing innovation processes with e.g. production processes
from the degrees of freedom point of view, innovation processes tend to be more creative.
Therefore, the controlling of these processes in terms of efficiency is not widely used within
companies due to the lack of key performance indicators. Whereas many performance indicators
are available and are used to control the efficiency of production processes. Value stream mapping
as a fast and easy approach to create transparency on the efficiency of production processes by
analysing the key characteristics of the production process (value adding and waste) is commonly
used within companies.
This paper depicts analogies and differences of innovation and production processes in order to
discuss the transferability of value stream mapping to create transparency along innovation
processes´ efficiency. Therefore, the stage-gate-process as reference innovation process will be
analysed in order to derive main measurable key performance indicators of stages and gates. The
present work focuses on the conceptual introduction of R&D-Value Stream Mapping in the
academic discourse and as a basis for testing this methodology in practice and will conclude in a
critical assessment.
