Timing of product market launch is becoming increasingly important in the current competitive business climate. Owners are trying to cut the cost and length of projects since they are very susceptible to pressures in the global market. Contractors and Suppliers are thus faced with more obstacles in order to satisfy these expectations without endangering their business standing.
