Abstract

A normative model to guide managers in their quest to speed new products to market in a timely manner was presented. The extent and the duration of investments in both design and process related resources are optimally determined over a finite planning horizon. The profit earned from production and sales of the new product is influenced by dynamic revenues, design-related knowledge, current design and dynamic demand.
