Product Line Engineering (PLE) and Lean/Agile share common goals – faster delivery and lower cost with better quality. PLE organizes people in a factory that produces the products in a product line from engineering assets shared across the portfolio. Lean/Agile organizes people in cross-functional, self-managed teams and teams-of-teams, which, at scale, are called value streams. Both approaches strive to reduce the handoffs, delays, and rework that occur when organizations mis-utilize their engineers and developers. This talk discusses how PLE and Lean/Agile principles support one another.
This talk presents the new SAFe 4.0 and discusses how these, and the other additions, help large, engineering system builders realize the benefits of lean and agile practices.
The requirements paradigm has been changing over the last few years. There is much more interaction with stakeholders throughout the lifecycle. There is an acknowledgement that we do not know all the requirements at the beginning of a project, so we need to be able to readily accommodate change. There is also a realization that requirements drive complex projects, meaning that we need to be able to trace requirements to design, development and test. The new DOORS Next Generation facilitates all
