This study explores the relationship between technology size and installation time in technology transfer projects. A literature study revealed that the installation time has so far not received much attention. Current studies address the effectiveness of technology transfer rather than efficiency. In addition, and as a consequence of the effectiveness approach, technology size had not been particularly identified as a major variable in technology transfer. Case studies carried out in the aircraft industry showed that technology size in fact is a key factor in the installation period. Based on these studies a model for measuring technology size has been developed. A case study methodology was selected for this study in order to obtain in-depth data.
