Lean manufacturing and accelerated product development, two forces when combined into lean product development, can accelerate time-to-market and manufacturing scale-up, achieving production readiness in the shortest possible time. This paper presents what is possible when the two underlying themes of lean manufacturing and new product development unite with the orchestrated chaos of a high performing team. A benchmark value stream has been documented along with product development cycle time examples ranging from 4 to 16 months for concept-to-production readiness.
