I've done installations where people have gone live in two days. I've had some that have taken months.
I think the biggest factor is how much legacy data you want to bring into the new system and how different that data is from what you want it to be. Other big factors are replicated sites -when the sites work differently from each other, essentially this means at least twice as much work. In-flexibility also contributes; are you willing to change the way you work to meet the software or do you want the software to meet the way you work -you can go either way, but a compromise usually saves implementation time. Complex workflows can add a day or two.
That being said, if you know what you are doing, I would guess on average people go live in five days.
We have run into a few glitches with our PDM workgroup data not migrateing to Enterprise. The problem is with revision history not importing, slowing down our timeline just a bit.
