CESAM Agility: an Iterative & Collaborative Approach for Complex Systems Development

The CESAM Agility framework has 4 key features, allowing an industrial company to successfully implement an agile / iterative systems engineering framework. These features are:

1. Product and organization alignment,
2. Iterative collaboration between layers and disciplines,
3. Iterative key design driver’s management,
4. DMU and FMU as pivots for transversal synchronization.

Note that features 1 and 3 do strongly rely on systems engineering and architecting techniques, when feature 2 is rather an adaptation of agile and SAFe® principles to industrial contexts and feature 4 refers to the digital tooling support.
