Today, the IT-driven convergence of previously separated domains is the mega- trend across industries. Systems and services become smart by being aware of their environment. Enterprise IT, on the other hand, needs to connect with many distributed devices and systems. Ubiquitous computing and the Internet of Things are transforming and converging entire industries, as is underlined by the slogan that a car is a computer on wheels. Alpana Dubey of Accenture and I provide in- dustry insights and the latest software trends. I look forward to hearing from both readers and prospective department authors regarding the technologies you want to know more about.

Rising cost pressure is forcing manufacturers and their suppliers to jointly and consistently master product development. Our industry case study shows how a leading automotive OEM over time has achieved effective interaction of engineering processes, tools and people on the basis of product and application life-cycle management (PLM / ALM). Starting from establishing the relevant engineering processes, we show how they can be effectively automated for best possible usage across the enterprise and even for suppliers. We practically describe how such a profound change process is successfully managed together with impacted engineers and how the concepts can be transferred to other companies. Concrete results for efficiency improvement, shorter lead time and better quality in product development combined with better global engineering underline the business value. Read this white paper with our global project experiences with BMW, Bosch, Siemens, Thales and Volkswagen.

Most innovative products are developed in distributed settings. The targets are clear: More flexibility, innovation and efficiency. Global engineering and product development has become a key competence for any engineering organisation. However, the vast majority of global activities do not deliver to targets, and half of them are aborted due to reasons such as insufficient collaboration, high overheads, or insufficient worksplit and competences. This keynote of renowned industry expert Christof Ebert, managing director at Vector Consulting Services, summarizes concrete experiences and guidance from industry. He provides a framework of 3x3 best practices which are necessary to achieve flexibility, innovation and efficiency with distributed projects and products. Prof. Ebert offers many practical hints and concrete explanations to make distributed teams and projects a success.

Vector provides foundations and a case study on agile requirements engineering. Based on our worldwide agile transformation projects we provide practical tips for scaleable agile requirements processes. A set of best practice guidance is provided, starting with a value-oriented elaboration of the actual need. Then we look at techniques like Design Thinking, Kanban, role of product owner, etc. This tutorial is the short version of our full-day training. Please contact us for more information on our trainings or agile coaching.

Our Ford case study shows how to practically implement agile systems engineering – on a global scope. Vector Consulting has supported Ford over several years to establish such agile framework. Agile Systems Engineering supports the continuous and flexible development of requirements up to validation. It creates understanding of critical dependencies and provides methodological support to address growing complexity. Due to the increased abstraction level at the beginning of the requirements development and analysis, problem descriptions are much clearer, simpler and less redundant. This not only improves the development speed, but also ensures clearly understood domain concepts within the project. Our case study with Ford highlights industry experiences and thus provides orientation in the linking of agile development and system engineering. Our industry projects show efficiency gains of 20-30%, primarily due to shorter cycle times.

To survive in a fast changing environment, we need to continuously improve productivity, reduce rework, and optimize product strategies. Lean development and lean management offer the right ingredients: Eliminating waste, empowering teams, delivering as fast as possible, seeing the whole. But there is a dark side, as recent industry experiences show. Too lean is mean. Lean often fails due to lack of vision, organizational misalignment and insufficient execution. It is thus crucial for companies to successfully manage change towards lean development. This keynote will introduce to lean principles and practices. It will draw upon the vast experiences at Vector from client projects in a variety of industries. Topics include lean transition, change management when introducing new tools, improving engineering processes, and setting up a global software organization. The Vector change check is highlightes so that participants can address their specific challenges.

Follow-the-sun has evolved to follow-the-talent. Managing a product thus has a true global perspective. Products increasingly are developed in virtual teams using agile set-up and gig economy practices. The success of a product or service depends on its product management. Recently software product management has moved closer to software development in its understanding that market decisions have technical impact, and vice versa. This research provides results from an empirical field study with twenty companies on software product management in its global context. The empirical study provides concrete practices to fertilize and evolve software product management in global teams and thus the success of products in terms of predictability, quality and efficiency. We show that with institutionalization of a consistent and empowered product management role, global product development benefits in terms of schedule, quality and duration.
