A literature review, which relates engineering change management, product structures, product development and business processes, is presented. Three hypotheses on the relation are presented. Business processes are categorized into three main categories that are supported by autonomous or multi product development processes. The characteristics of product development processes and literature on engineering change management are reviewed. Product structuring is related to the characteristics of product development and the propagation of engineering changes. The relation of engineering changes, product structuring and business processes is used in the conclusions where the mode of business operation is related to constraints on the engineering change management, product structures and product development processes.
