The paper attempts to empirically study the effects of the application of selected engineering management technologies on the length of product development time. The goal is to find out if these techniques are at all effective in shortening product development time. Several technologies were studied as possible methods of reducing product development cycle time. Three main areas of application were identified: product strategy, development process, and the development team structure.
