The Piano Chart is a graphical presentation of a drug development pipeline. In this presentation, each product is represented by a box, stacked in columns by phase of developments. These columns of boxes often appear like the keys on a piano, giving the chart its name.
A Piano Chart is created from data retrieved from one or more drug pipeline databases in BizInt Smart Charts for Drug Pipelines, results are integrated with BizInt Smart Charts Reference Rows, data is normalized in VantagePoint - Smart Charts Edition, and then the Piano Chart is rendered in Microsoft PowerPoint or Microsoft Excel.
