Dealing with development risk and complexity in planning situations within product engineering processes

Every product development process is unique and individual. Nevertheless, patterns of recurring and similar elements exist in different processes which experience specific characteristics depending on the type of project. In addition to the different objectives that form the basis of a product development process, projects differ primarily in their share of new development and their degree of complexity. In order to deal appropriately with the resulting uncertainty, implementing agile approaches in processes of mechatronic system development is becoming more popular with the aim of making the development project more flexible. However, it must be borne in mind that not every development process requires an agile approach. Although plan-driven approaches have a poor ability to react to changes, they provide clear structure that leads to a common understanding of the process and a clear definition of objectives. Since a development project does not only contain problems that are well-suited for an agile or a sequential approach it is important to adapt the process to the underlying situation and requirements. In sufficiently plannable situations a purely agile approach would entail the loss of structure. ... mehr
