Making agile work for hardware

Intro to the MAHD Framework

The Modified Agile for Hardware Development (MAHD) Framework provides the benefits of Agile, but supports the needs of physical product development.  Hardware-based teams can also get big benefits over traditional processes, but since Agile wasn’t designed for physical products a modified approach must:

  • Adapt to new insight, but allow designs to freeze
  • Accommodate a range of disciplines (including SW)
  • Manage lead times, schedule & production needs
  • Support p/t team members & external stakeholders

The MAHD Framework is ideal for teams developing hardware-based products to gain the benefits of agile while staying aligned with their software teams. 

Agile PD Pros and MAHD

As hardware-oriented organizations adopt agile methodologies, they often encounter challenges in adapting to the new practices and implementing them effectively. This is why Agile PD Pros founder, Dorian Simpson, led the effort to develop the Modified Agile for Hardware Development Framework with a focus on:

  • Adhering to Agile principles, modifying tactics to support the reality of hardware
  • Minimizing new language and dramatic organization changes
  • Providing a flexible approach to managing any project

Agile PD Pros provides a range of consulting and training services to help organizations successfully adopt and implement agile methods based on MAHD Framework methodologies.
