Swedish Lean Product Development Implementation
2012 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
Lean Product Development is based on the same philosophy as Lean, applied in a research and development environment. The concept aims to create flow, quality and resource efficiency in the product development process. This paper investigates the implementation strategies of three Swedish companies that have been working with the concept for several years. The results from this study indicates that concrete methods like visual planning are good starting points for Lean Product Development implementation, but that the real results start to show first when the organizations work with methods and principles in parallel. Also, it may not necessarily be an advantage to have an experience of Lean in production environment before starting implement LPD.
