Looking for a New Product Introduction (NPI) project schedule template (Medical Equipment Supplier).
Looking for a NPI project schedule template for the medical equipment supplier industry. MS project MPP would be great, but a Process or WBS would be greatly appreciated. Just want to align NPI in my organization with best practices. Thank you very much for considering my request.

Didn't find one in the Templates section Trevor?
Unfortunately due to the vast array of technologies in the medical equipment industry, it's a very broad request. I found a generic WBS template for electronics development a few years (IEEE?) and it was 30 pages long. I didn't use most of it for my project, but that gives you an idea of the scope that could be covered. On the other hand, a mechanical system is going to have a quite different WBS than a laser so one template may not fit all equipment.

Due to the regulatory requirements, unless you can find a template that covers everything, I would suspect you will need a combination of the underlying technology development, merged with the regulatory certification process.
