Increasing complexity of socio-technical systems makes cross-system product development in companies difficult. To master this complexity, company-related focal points are becoming increasingly important. The aim of the joint project AMeLie is to make the product development of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) more efficient. This is done through a structured approach, which increases efficiency and thus competitiveness. For this purpose, conventional systems engineering (SE) approaches from theory are transferred into manageable methods. These methods can be individually combined for solutions. In this way, development processes will be shortened in the long term and SE becomes applicable for SMEs. This Blogpost aims to provide an insight of the capability pillar “Process Efficiency”. It will cover the four capabilities defining an efficient process landscape, what they consist of and what you need to mind mastering all of them. Further, it will show the importance of efficient processes in the context of SMEs.
