Study: Lean development in the German mechanical engineering 2015 (German)

July 27, 2015

Failure to meet deadlines, going over budget, losses in quality — nearly four in ten development projects in German mechanical and plant engineering fail to meet their targets. This was the outcome of a study Staufen conducted jointly with Germany’s Mechanical Engineering Industry Association (VDMA). It appears that the principles of efficient and effective development projects are applied in a wide range of ways among German mechanical and plant engineers.
