The five generic principles for the achievement of a Lean Production System or even enterprise are: Identify Value, Map Value Stream, Make Value Plow, Let Customer Pull, and Pursue Perfection. However it can be argued that only Lean Manufacture (factory) has been adequately researched and implemented in companies, and a comprehensive body of knowledge been developed. Comparatively little has been said about the application of the five lean principles to Product Development or Integrated Product Development. This paper describes the research carried out within the EPSRC funded UK Lean Aerospace Initiative, in understanding how and to what extent the five lean principles can be applied to product development. It has been concluded that whilst the lean principles are relevant and of benefit to product development processes the concepts of 'value' and 'waste' as defined for manufacture cannot be directly applied and need to be tailored or modified.
