Product line growth can create a natural degradation into chaos. The common engineering solution follows a copy-and-tailor for requirements, designs, code, and tests rather than a strategic, planned reuse. A global, strategic configuration management approach across lifecycle domains (e.g. requirements) can bring order to this chaos. Order replaces uncontrolled costs with direct profits. In this webcast we walk you through a detailed scenario based on a real product line problem and solution.
Overview Specification Workshops provide a lean-agile approach to creating and evolving engineering specifications. Workshops produce a SysML model following a standard, MBSE approach to modeling system structure, behavior, and information. These face-to-face meetings create a shared understanding across customers, users, domain experts, product owners and teams. They align everyone on a common approach to building a solution and record that […]

321 Gang, Inc. announced today that it is now a Scaled Agile Inc. (SAI) Gold SPCT Partner, and that 321 Gang Director of Technology, Harry Koehnemann, Ph.D., a contributor to the SAFe Lean Systems Engineering (LSE) Principles, has achieved the elite designation of SAFe Program Consultant Trainer (SPCT).
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.
Many have discussed, and some have questioned, how Scrum and agile principles apply to non-software disciplines. Can they apply? Will they provide benefits? We’ve been working with a large program that has gone “all in” scaling and applying agile. They build complex defense systems with hundreds of mechanical, electrical, and embedded software engineers and significant compliance demands. This program is completely organized around delivering value through dozens of cross-functional agile teams, strongly influenced by SAFe LSE for alignment and coordination.
Harry Koehnemann, Director of Technology at 321 Gang is presenting Applying the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) to Lean Systems Engineering at the GRUC Webcast on September 10, 2015 at noon Eastern. The Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®) is an industry-leading, publicly-facing framework for scaling Lean Agile development practices. It is based on Lean and Agile principles, Systems thinking, and product development […]
321 Gang’s Director of Technology, Harry Koehnenmann, will be presenting on Applying the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®) to Lean Systems Engineering (LSE) at the IBM Continuous Engineering Symposium at 11:05 AM on May 12, 2015 in Dallas, Texas.
Learn about a systems engineering process that our team at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory developed to successfully deliver a functional systems-engineered product. The process depended upon embedding Agile development practices within a plan-driven, hierarchical project lifecycle.
View WebcastThis talk presents the current state for SAFe LSE and show how applies to large product and program development. We will motivate the need for lean systems engineering by showing the challenges of traditional engineering in the context of and show how SAFe LSE can support systems that have variability and uncertainty.
