This paper introduces Product Life Cycle Disposition Model (PLDM), which is an explanatory model to improve the understanding of dispositional mechanisms within product development projects to support the decision making process. PLDM explains the dispositional mechanisms between product characteristics and product life cycle characteristics and represents a process to manage these dispositions. The initial model is constructed based on a literature review and is further developed in a pilot study with a company from the Finnish manufacturing industry.
