Design by Prototyping: Increasing Agility in Mechatronic Product Design through Prototyping Sprints

C. A. Hansen, R. Arlitt, T. Eifler, M. Deininger
2022 Proceedings of the Design Society  
AbstractThis paper adapts the agile scrum sprint, typically used in software development, to a prototyping sprint for mechatronic product design.  ...  A comparison of 18 student projects using either prototyping sprints or a traditional iterative prototyping approach shows that prototyping sprints helped students make more deliberate, strategic decisions  ...  For software products, an increment can be a new feature that is ready to be released in a software update at the end of the sprint, so value is created immediately.  ...
