I have been working more or less continually on the same product since I joined the company five years ago; the product was some years old even then.

If the product is the project then it is never ending. We are, sort of, proposing a whole new structure and a complete re-write to take advantage of newer technologies but that could take at least two, perhaps three years to accomplish; it is a big product.

If a new or improved feature is a project then from a few days to a few months is a typical development cycle.

We (a team of five) tend to release a new product version to our customers two or three times a year.
