Agile Method Development: A live-lab case study on product properties for process planning

May, 2018

Developing design methods can be described as a process similar to product development processes. Following agile approaches is worthwhile in order to identify relevant requirements of potential users at early stages of method's maturity. Live-Labs, as a controllable research environment located between laboratory and field studies, provide an environment whose results are neither too specific nor too generic. In this paper, an agile development of a method for process planning depending on product attributes is presented. The research took place in a Live-Lab with industrial participation.
