About this Textbook

This book presents a series of high performance product design (PD) and development best practices that can create or improve product development organization. In contrast to other books that focus only on Toyota or other individual companies applying lean IPD, this book explains the lean philosophy more broadly and includes discussions of systems engineering, design for X (DFX), agile development, integrated product development, and project management.

The “Lean Journey” proposed here takes a value-centric approach, where the lean principles are applied to PD to allow the tools and methods selected to emerge from observation of the individual characteristics of each enterprise. This means that understanding lean product development (LPD) is not about knowing which tools are available but knowing how to apply the philosophy. The book comes with an accompanying manual with problems and solutions available on Springer Extras.

About the authors

Dr. Pessoa graduated from the Brazilian Air Force Academy as a military pilot, received his Master of Science in Applied Computing from the Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas Espaciais, Brazil (1998), and his Doctor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the Instituto Tecnológico de Aeronáutica (ITA), Brazil (2006). He was also a postdoctoral fellow in Mechanical and Systems Engineering at MIT, USA (2007–2008). In the Brazilian Air Force, he worked on systems development, systems acquisition, and development process improvement. Outside the Air Force, he worked on applying lean concepts and improving product development processes (PDPs) in companies such as Whirlpool, Mectron, and Ford. Currently, he is a lean product development and project management consultant and teaches the Lean Product Development course at the Instituto Tecnológico de Aeronáutica, Brazil. Dr. Trabasso graduated as a mechanical engineer from the Universidade Estadual Paulista Júlio de Mesquita Filho (1982). He received his Master of Science in Engineering and Aerospace Technology from the Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas Espaciais (1985) and his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Loughborough University, England (1991). He has held various professorial positions at the Instituto Tecnológico de Aeronáutica (ITA) since 1984. He is one of the founders of the Competence Center for Manufacturing at ITA (CCM/ITA), a laboratory that runs strategic projects with industrial partners such as Embraer, Siemens, Fiat, Rexam and Petrobras. Currently, he is full professor at ITA, focusing his research on integrated product development (IPD), lean IPD, industrial automation and robotics.
