  • use batch size reduction and WIP constraints to improve flow
  • create fast feedback loops to increase quality and efficiency
  • reduce the economic cost of variability without stifling innovation
  • develop a step-by-step implementation plan to incorporate lean principles into your own development process

I. Introduction

Most companies that applying lean methods in product development fail to appreciate the critical differences between repetitive manufacturing processes and non-repetitive development processes. Such differences mean that waste is found in very different places. Until this is recognized, companies will only attack easily visible, but superficial forms of waste.

This section will cover:

  • An overview of how lean techniques improve product development speed, quality, and cost
  • An understanding of the critical differences between product development and manufacturing
  • An explanation of importance of Design-in-Process Inventory


II. Establishing an Economic Framework

Every product development process has multiple economic goals. To balance these goals we must express them in the same unit of measure. This method allows us to quantify the Cost of Delay and to use it to determine the economic cost of queues in our process.

This section will cover:

  • How to quantify the Cost of Delay
  • How to use information to improve decision-making


III. Managing Queues

Variability is a greatly misunderstood concept in product development. Paradoxically, you cannot add value in product development without adding variability, but you can add variability without adding value. A product must be changed to add value, and this change creates uncertainty. This section will cover:

Key Learnings

  • How queues affect economic performance
  • How variability and over-utilization cause queues
  • How to measure and manage queues
  • The 10 most important product development queues


IV. Exploiting Variability

Variability is a greatly misunderstood concept in product development. Paradoxically, you cannot add value in product development without adding variability, but you can add variability without adding value. A product must be changed to add value, and this change creates uncertainty.

This section will cover:

  • How to distinguish between good and bad variability
  • How to eliminate unnecessary variability
  • How to reduce the economic consequences of necessary variability


V. Reducing Batch Size

In manufacturing, batch size reduction is the key factor that creates order of magnitude reductions in cycle time. In product development, only 3 percent of companies have formal efforts to reduce development process batch size.

This section will cover:

  • The importance of small batch size and how to achieve it
  • How to recognize the ten most common batch size problems in product development


VI. Applying WIP Constraints

Most product development processes neither measure nor control WIP. Yet, excessive WIP leads to long cycle time and slow feedback loops. Effective WIP management requires knowing when WIP is excessive, and having tools to correct this problem.

This section will cover:

  • The science and economics of WIP constraints
  • Nine practical ways to react to WIP explosions


VII. Controlling Flow 1: Congestion & Cadence

Processes with variability, such as product development, are prone to congestion. Both traffic systems and telecommunication systems provide valuable insights on congestion avoidance and congestion control. Today’s development processes underutilize cadence.

This section will cover:

  • What causes congestion and how we can prevent it
  • How a regular cadence improves performance
  • Examples of cadence applied to product development


VIII. Controlling Flow 2: Synchronization & Sequencing

Synchronization reduces the formation of queues. When queues form we can reduce their cost by sequencing work correctly. The First-in First-out methods of manufacturing are poorly suited to this challenge. Fortunately, product developers can exploit more advanced approaches that are used in computer operating systems.

This section will cover:

  • How synchronization reduces queues
  • Economically-based methods for sequencing work
  • A network-based approach for managing flow


IX. Accelerating Feedback

Slow feedback loops cause enormous waste in product development. Yet, many developers do not measure feedback speed or try to improve it. Well-structured feedback loops actually create spectacular opportunities to smooth flow, increase efficiency, and improve quality.

This section will cover:

  • Why fast feedback is critical
  • How feedback reduces variability and improves flow
  • Metrics for managing flow-based product development


X. Decentralizing Control

Some product developers see highly centralized control as the only way to improve performance; others argue for complete decentralization. We will examine the lessons that can be learned from military approaches that balance centralization and decentralization.

This section will cover:

  • The advantages and disadvantages of decentralized control
  • How to preserve alignment without sacrificing initiative


XI. Finding Waste

Because product development processes add value in different ways than manufacturing processes, waste is found in different places. Typically, waste shows up in predictable places in development processes.

This section will cover:

  • Ten common areas of product development waste


XII. Implementation

The final section will review factors that are likely to lead to successful implementation. Course participants will begin designing a plan for implementation. This section will cover:

This section will cover:

  • How to initiate pilot programs and scale them up
  • A group exercise to identify immediate next steps
