Today’s fast-paced development environment requires maximum flexibility, which is practically impossible to achieve when manufacturers and suppliers use traditional collaboration methods. A far higher level of design flexibility is needed, and that requires new project organization structures and flexible contract models.
That’s why EB came up with the Lean Development Model for automotive software projects. It combines state-of-the-art software development methodologies, such as Scrum and Kanban, with industry standards, such as Automotive SPICE.
Based on this model we support our customers gain the benefits of lean development.
Accelerate your innovation cycles
by creating potentially shippable releases at each iteration of development. This approach minimizes time-to-market while ensuring the development of the most important features first. And the ongoing customer input helps establish project scope and ensures customers are better prepared to define and prioritize features, reducing the need for extensive requirements gathering or change request negotiations.
Enhance your flexibility
through agile development methods which allow the team to make changes in direction quickly, incorporate the latest technical innovations, and respond to market changes, even late in the project.
Increase your cost control
through continuous customer collaboration and frequent deliveries of working software.
Improve the project transparency
through iterative and frequent software releases that give customers a better insight into the status of the project. Jointly prioritized feature backlogs help the customer to better understand the trade-offs. And, the transparent environment co-creates an atmosphere that promotes innovation.

Agile development isn’t just about software development. It’s about creating a basis for new collaboration and contract models.
It’s crucial to establish the right control mechanisms early and then continuously adjust to changes in the team or the project environment. Agile software project execution propagates that approach.
