Shorter product life cycles make Development/Production transition capabilities critical to the success of high-tech organizations. This report studies the development to production transition (DPT) process, and the critical factors of transition and their strategic importance to the managers of high technology firms. DPT case studies are highlighted in the semiconductor, investment casting and Department of Energy subcontractor industries to examine how DPT was used as it pertains to their product lines.
