The initial planning of the development of complicated products usually requires time and efforts. However, even the most accurate plans are not able to cope with all the uncertainties that might arise during an ongoing project. If a severe uncertainty affect the development project a critical situation arises and a disruption might happen. The present literature does not offer a comprehensive solution on how to investigate these type of events after they occurred. This contribution presents a model that aims to analyse and better understand disruptions that affect ongoing product development projects.
