Today’s engineers often struggle to implement new methods and regulations, while also continuing to work as efficiently as possible when they develop novel technology products.
Each system – or system of systems, in some cases – goes through an engineering lifecycle, which is
sometimes referred to as a product development lifecycle. In terms of today’s DevOps and value
chains, these life cycles can range from a very early ideation phase to end-of-life activities for an
In some cases, key practices are simply added on to existing legacy workflows, whether it is modern
engineering methods or new regulatory requirements:
➡️Agile and Lean Practices in a Regulated Environment
➡️Lean Portfolio Management
➡️Design for Six Sigma / Reliability Engineering
➡️Data Privacy Engineering
➡️Computer Systems Assurance
➡️Legacy Quality Management Systems
➡️Truly Integrated Lifecycle
Simply adding spot improvements often results in an inflexible process landscape without an
