scrum in manufacturing

Hal Macomber is a lean construction consultant who is currently developing a responsibility-based planning approach for a firm that designs high-tech manufacturing plants. The resulting process will be a hybrid of lean’s Last Planner System with Scrum. And Hal is managing the development of that process using Scrum. He has even hired a ScrumMaster from the world of software development to help with the iterative focus of the project.

I believe this is the kind of application for which Scrum is ideally suited. It brings a clear and simple structure to the process of developing something, and expects the application’s domain to provide the tools and techniques that will deliver value each iteration.

I’ll be watching with interest as Hal’s experiment unfolds.
