Agile Product Design

Achieve a robust process in the design phase




Whether long-term, short-term or one-shot, having a robust process in the design phase is crucial.


Our way of combining Lean and Agile Design Methodologies lets you effectively manage life cycles and value streams at the design stage. It means reducing lead time on your launches, ensures efficient industrialization and sustainability during and at the end of your products’ lifecycles. We bring you significant reductions in terms of time and associated costs so you can provide a better service and be more competitive.

While important, Virtual reality tools, design for 6 Sigma, PPDIC or other methods that are commonly applied to design processes, have proven not to bring drastic reductions in the innovation process. Nor can they guarantee lean manufacturing criteria from the very design.


Sisteplant deep-dives into design offices’ processes and interactions and our experts provide them with agile procedures through the application of Lean Design. This not only reduces launch times, it ensures quality and specs while improving costs, promoting cultural changes and boosting design teams’ motivation.



Sisteplant boasts a proven track record across a range of sectors (aerospace, naval, automotive...). The wins we bring clients in this type of project include: 

  • Optimization of value generation flows (design innovations that allow for higher price positioning in the market). 
  • Reduction of product development and industrialization times.
  • Reduction of design and engineering costs.
  • Reduction of costs and manufacturing times right from product conception (design oriented to Lean manufacturing).
  • We achieve the above thanks to our solid methodology driven by:
    • Application of PDVSM (Product Develpment, Value Stream Mapping).
    • Set Based Concurrent Engineering (SBCS) / Lean Design/agile/scrum.
    • Knowledge Based Process Engineering (KBE).
    • Advanced activity planning, synchronization.
    • Deployment of visual management tools and objective indicators.
    • Standardization of design policies.
    • QFD / FMEA /DFMA analysis.
