Patterns for Agile Hardware-Inclusive Systems
While the roots of Agile Development and the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) are in software development, the principles of Lean and Agile are generally applicable for Hardware/Product Development as well as Embedded Software. This ‘trifecta’ of software, embedded code and hardware constitutes the majority of today’s most complex systems… but hardware teams are often uncertain how to best apply their craft as part of an agile team.
This one-day session introduces common patterns used, along with case studies, when hardware development is part of the overall system engineering program.
Some knowledge of Agile, Scaled Agile and Model-based System Engineering is helpful but not required.
- Principles of Agile
- Fundamentals of Scaled Agile
- Challenges for Hardware
- Integration Challenges
- Iterative Development and Demonstration with Hardware
- Collaboration Patterns
Students will come away with inspiration, ideas and examples of how to apply agile thinking to hardware-inclusive systems. They will have an outline of best next steps for the hardware teams in their organization.
