MES SW Factory in Siemens
A description of how the Lean transition is progressing in the AS SW MES organization, a 500 people R&D group part of the Siemens Industrial Automation sector.
The leading change agent that coordinates the Lean transition is the Enterprise Transition Community, a group that initiates, encourages, and supports the effort to introduce and improve the Lean transition.
The transition is supported by the MES Software Factory, i.e. the collection of processes and tools that make possible the value creation in the software organization: key elements are the value stream management scaled at all levels of the enterprise together with a strong continuous improvement process.
