Product development is tough, especially when it comes to mechatronic products, where some components change almost on a yearly basis, whereas others require years to be developed. TAF addresses this challenge, by helping its user to identify the right product to build and manage the uncertainty and change during the development time.
TAF is inspired by the agile PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Act) cycle, and helps to build first a desirable, then a feasible and finally a viable minimal product. In the next stage it can be recursively applied to components with significantly different time to markets. Maintaining flexibility where change is fast and at the same time keeping processes in place where it takes time to deliver quality and coordinating the interfaces between the two.
