READ PDF ì Lean Product and Process Development ⛑ Lean Product and Process Development, Second Edition by Ward, Allen C and Sobek II, Durward K The PMustang perhaps the finest piston engine fighter ever built was designed and put into flight in just a few months Specifications were finalized on March ,the airfoil prototype was complete on Septemberand the aircraft made its maiden flight on OctoberNow that is a lean development process Allen Ward and Durward Sobek, commenting on the development of the PMustang and its exemplary use of trade off curves Shingo Research and Professional Publication Award recipient,Despite attempts to interpret and apply lean product development techniques, companies still struggle with design quality problems, long lead times, and high development costs To be successful, lean product development must go beyond techniques, technologies, conventional concurrent engineering methods, standardized engineering work, and heavyweight project managers Allen Ward showed the way In a truly groundbreaking first edition of Lean Product and Process Development, Ward delivered with passion and penetrating insights that cannot be found elsewhere a comprehensive view of lean principles for developing and sustaining product and process development In the second edition, Durward Sobek, professor of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at Montana State University and one of Ward s premier students edits and reorganizes the original text to make it accessible and actionable This new edition builds on the first one by Adding five in depth and inspiring case studies Including insightful new examples and illustrations Updating concepts and tools based on recent developments in product development Expanding the discussion around the critical concept of set based concurrent engineering Adding a detailed table of contents and an index to make the book accessible and user friendly The True Purpose of Product Development Ward s core thesis is that the very aim of the product development process is to create profitable operational value streams, and that the key to doing so predictably, efficiently, and effectively is to create useable knowledge Creating useable knowledge requires learning, so Ward also creates a basic learning model for development But Ward not only describes the technical tools needed to make lean product and process development actually work He also delineates the management system, management behaviors, and mental models needed In this breakthrough text, Ward Asks fundamental questions about the purpose and value added in product development so you gain a crystal clear understanding of essential issues Shows you how to find the most common forms of knowledge waste that plagues product development Identifies four cornerstones of lean product development gleaned from the practices of successful companies like Toyota and its partners, and explains how they differ from conventional practices Gives you specific, practical recommendations for establishing your own lean development processes Melds observations of effective teamwork from his military background, engineering fundamentals from his education and personal experience, design methodology from his research, and theories about management and learning from his study of history and experiences with customers Changes your thinking forever about product development Must read for any lean and agile practitioner. This is a great and informative book explaining how to design new products and entire product lines in an efficient and effective way, avoiding waste and minimising the duration of the process The author s notes and manuscript were completed in 2001, but sadly, Allen Ward died in a plane crash in 2004, before he had a chance to publish John Shook and Durward Sobek, both master s of lean engineering in their own right, have done the world a service by arranging the publication of Allen Ward s i This is a great and informative book explaining how to design new products and entire product lines in an efficient and effective way, avoiding waste and minimising the duration of the process The author s notes and manuscript were completed in 2001, but sadly, Allen Ward died in a plane crash in 2004, before he had a chance to publish John Shook and Durward Sobek, both master s of lean engineering in their own right, have done the world a service by arranging the publication of Allen Ward s ideas in this book form in January 2007.Although Ward s experiences derive from manufacturing industry, the contents of this book surely apply to the research, design and development process of any product Personally I have learnt a lot from the ideas and concepts explained so coherently herein and I and my colleagues are busy mapping them to the whole life cycle of software intensive systems, a class of products that surely need the application of such ideas if ever anything did Highly recommended Especially to anyone who wants to create new products and see them reach and sustain a profitable market.P Grant Rule,St Clare s, January 2008.href This is a great book about HOW lean works in product development after studying Toyota s world class processes.This book was finished posthumously Allen Ward passed away before finishing this.
