Title: Applying Lean Thinking Principles to Software Development
Author: Tatum, Ray
Abstract: Lean thinking principles, based on the Japanese concept muda, have been successfully applied in manufacturing and product development organizations since the 1940s. The software development community can realize similar benefits, with potential to eliminate wasted efforts inherent in the serial and structured traditional software development process. This study defines the seven basic principles of lean thinking (Poppendieck and Poppendieck, 2003), examines how they relate to the software development process and suggests techniques for their application.
