Abstract:
This is an investigation into the scope for applying continuous improvement (CI) to the process of new product development (NPD). The thesis makes two main contributions to knowledge. Firstly, it brings together the fields of continuous improvement of processes and NPD, which both have their own literature and research activity but have hitherto remained somewhat separated from each other. Secondly, it develops and tests an analytical model to support the implementation of CI within NPD.
