Building Complex Hardware and Software Systems with SAFe
For those of you who have been following (or contributing to) the SAFe for Lean Systems Engineering development, you know that our learnings have now been consolidated into SAFe 4.0. But you also know that there are many more steps in a journey to better understand and apply the Principles of Lean-Agile development to systems that include both hardware and software.
Our next step down this path is a new article by Alex and 321 Gang’s Harry Koehnemann (who was instrumental in the development of SAFe LSE), entitled Building Complex Systems with SAFe, which has just now been posted on Version One’s blog.
Alex and Harry are committed to evolving this work further, and we can expect some solid, enhanced content to appear in the SAFe Guidance section in the next few months. In the meantime, check out this article, and see if you think the u-curve optimization figure for thinking through the economics of complex system integration is as cool a thought as I do.
Of course, comments are welcome, right here.
