Scaling Agility in Product Line Engineering (PLE) with SAFe
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. We first provide background on PLE and Lean/Agile principles and how they align. We then discuss common issues including forming teams, aligning teams on a common cadence, managing budgets that span products, and handling product evolution over time. We also discuss the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) provides a framework that enables both PLE and Agile practices.
