Transformation to Lean Product Development – Approaches at Two Automotive Suppliers
Paper i proceeding, 2012

The transformation to a lean product development system was studied at two automotive suppliers. The study covers the transformation approach, the problems along the way, some early results of the transformation and a comparison between the two firms in this respect. Both strive to change their operations to add more value in their delivery to the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer). The results show that the transformations are experienced as positive in both firms. It is demonstrated that this success is due to methods and principles included in the lean product development framework.
