Geoff Neiley, Rapiscan Systems and Peter Palmér , Scania - LPPD and Agile, Hardware / Software Interaction

This presentation focuses on the question: What happens when you are on a clear LPPD journey and suddenly Agile appear as a silver bullet? and how to take advantage of the challenge.

Today “Agile” is a hot topic and for many people meaning “good”. We will start by describing the current situation at two stable companies working with LPPD (Rapiscan and Scania) and discuss the possibilities, threats and problems that agile brings to the table, both for software as well as hardware development. We will share many practical examples and solutions, both those who worked and those who didn´t and what we can learn from both.

Geoff Neiley has been in the mechanical engineering field for 25 years, starting at NESLAB Instruments designing water chilling systems. After he spent 15 years working for BTU International where he began to see the reap the values of concurrent engineering.

3 years after joining AS&E in 2011, the leadership team introduced the concept of Lean Product Development. Geoff joined the leadership team reading many Lean PD books, inviting Lead PD practitioners to AS&E and attending LPPDE for several consecutive years. AS&E has roundly embraced the concurrent engineering aspects of Lean PD focusing greatly of Set-Base Innovation and cross-functional collaboration with our supply chain and manufacturing team. Today he is still learning and experimenting with lean processes and enjoys the pride felt in the team by enabling cross-functional to achieve challenging, rewarding goals.

Peter Palmér has extensive experience in lean management in both production and product development, as well as experience of leadership in other cultures. With 18 years of experience within production, engineering and quality followed by 20 years in various management positions in product development Peter has many stories to tell. Since the beginning of the 1990es he has been closely involved with the Scania Way development journey both in Sweden and South America.

Peter is a frequent speaker at international and national conferences on the subject about LPPD and leadership. Peter has been working closely with LPPDE since the organization's start 2008 including seven years on the LPPDE board with a second period started 2023. Through LPPDE Peter has organized and chaired or co-chaired many conferences in Europe and in the US. Since the end of 2020 he runs the monthly LPPDE Virtual Summits, a four hour learning exchange with four different speakers. He is a member of various LPD-networks and has co-developed LPD training courses with Chalmers Professional Education and The KTH Royal Institute of Technology.

    Bob Stavig, Retired R&D Project and Program Manager HP – Promoting & Retaining Women in Engineering

    Bob Stavig, co author of: Retaining Women in Engineering: The Empowerment of Lean Development will reflect on the challenge of retaining women in engineering. At the current rate, it will take 350 years to achieve gender parity.

    During this session, we will focus on 3 aspects of this challenge:

    • The Gender Schema (broader than stereotypes) that begin to form as early as 2 years old which shape our expectations and believes of girls and boys which eventually drive career and life choices.
    • The current methods of traditional product development, how they create an unlevel playing field for women, and the learnings from medicine. (Women now make up 50% of Med Students.)
    • How to apply the six Principles of Lean Development to:
    • Significantly improve your organizations business performance.
      • Drive innovation, and
      • Level the playing field for women.

    Disclaimer: Bob is not a consultant or a coach, he’s just a guy who wrote a book..

    Bob Stavig is a retired HP R&D Project and Program Manager. Experienced in Lean Product and Process Development and Scrum/Agile.

    During his 35 year career with Hewlett-Packard, Bob spent the last twenty years in Product Research and Development in various management and technical roles. During sixteen years of that time, he utilized the principles and methods of Lean Development in the delivery of nearly a dozen areas of work within product programs, process development, and technical asset development. Bob considers himself an engineer first and a manager second. In addition, Bob has fifteen years of experience in the areas of: manufacturing development, factory support, factory operational management, and worldwide manufacturing leadership.
