Many have discussed agile success stories in the IT domain. But little has been published on agility for embedded, product line systems. This talk presents a case study of one embedded product organization’s adoption of agile practices across multiple product lines. We discuss how the hardware, software, and project management teams collaborate in an embedded agile environment, and their adoption of agile techniques. While successful, there were several challenges faced by these teams. We discuss what practice and tool changes helped overcome some of the challenges and conclude with the existing challenges the teams still face. While the primary audience is embedded systems development, agile practitioners that support multiple product variants would also find this presentation beneficial.
