Large organisations typically have many product lines, each with their own complex new product introduction process(PIP). Business process re-engineering (BPR) studies often try to re-engineer each process as though it was a new problem. Capture and re-use of process information from previous BPR studies will substantially reduce the re-engineering effort and promote process standardisation. The benefits of standardisation include re-use of software components in the development of customised IT and the rapid, cost effective deployment of data management and workflow systems. A library of re-usable process elements is being developed to assist in the rapid development of new PIP designs. The paper outlines an information model for describing business processes. It discusses the benefits of process re-use and describes work undertaken to develop a prototype re-usable process library.
