Why Lean in Product Development
While the DFSS approach focuses on tools, techniques and methodology for a right first time design, application of Lean methodology to the complete design and development processes helps in making the Design Team & processes to be more agile and use right frameworks as per product requirements. Application of lean tools helps to focus the teams on the speed of development and aligns the processes and teams differently to make them nimble and improve the delivery of new products.
SSA Technowlogies has evolved its consulting processes over years of experience across various sectors & domains and recognized that application of lean in product development is one of the “Strategic Shifts” organization can make to ensure product leadership. Being first in the market place is one of the most important criteria in achieving Product Leadership.
