Product terminology simply explained

Shipyard Engine

Shipyard Engine is a term used in product management to refer to the foundational software or platform that powers a product. Similar to how an engine is the core component of a ship that drives it forward, the Shipyard Engine is the central system that enables the product to function and deliver value to users.

Just like a ship relies on its engine to navigate through the vast ocean, a product relies on its Shipyard Engine to carry out tasks such as data storage, processing, and user interface management. It's the underlying technology that keeps the product running smoothly and efficiently.
