We are frequently asked by our clients what we consider to be the biggest difference between Agile Software and Hardware development. Our unequivocal response: the cost of a defect.
Often we hear about the rising cost of fixing software bugs. In the world of hardware, however, the cost is exponentially higher and can frequently be a matter of life or death.
Given this enormous responsibility and burden of quality, hardware companies dealing with such high risks are seeking alternative, lean processes that focus on baking-in quality and control in every step.
How can this be achieved?
Join Scott Barnes, Agile Hardware Delivery Director, and Chad Moore, Senior Agile Transformation Coach, as we address the quality issue heads-on. We will share our experiences in leveraging lean-agile approaches in the hardware arena and cover lessons learned and best practices of our Agile Hardware Practice.
In this webinar we will explore how:
*The "push to get things done" can often have a negative impact and create risk
*Lean-Agile values provides a means to mitigate risk (such as decentralized decision making)
*Optimizing for flow has a better long lasting impact on quality and time to market
*Hardware and Agility go hand in hand, especially when agility embraces System Engineering
