Purchaser integration within the early innovation section has been thought of the strategy of selection in conception and perform. starting to be event with the concept that has proven unforeseen negative effects which could even outweigh its well-known benefits. for that reason, administration has to be capable of check prematurely no matter if the involvement of consumers will upload total price to each particular innovation project.

Stage-Gate-Process (Cooper 1997:22) The Development Funnel Wheelwright and Clark (1992) developed a model based on an approach that is basically similar to the Stage Gate Process: the Development Funnel. This “funnel” structures the innovation process into three “phases” separated by two “screens”. The main idea – and the reason why the picture of a funnel was chosen – is that at the outset of the innovation process a wide opening for all kinds of challenges and opportunities has to be provided, whereas the necessary concentration on just a few concepts asks for an elimination process by which only the most promising ideas pass through the narrow final opening prior to serial production.
The model has been criticized for its sequential design that excludes considerations turning up at later stages (Herstatt 1999: 77; Verworn 2005: 30).
