Following this idea, I’d like to define lean product development (LPD) as this: LPD is focused on developing more products better and with use of fewer resources. To be more specific, LPD contains the following three major elements, in my view: 1. Productivity in product development . Productivity is composed of two aspects: 1) individual productivity designers, engineers, and other product development parties need to reduce waste Read More...
