The Definitive Resource for
Agile for Hardware Methods

Welcome to the Agile for Hardware Community

Welcome to the MAHD Website

Welcome to the Agile for Hardware community! We’re just getting started with the basic framework and a few resources based on our experiences. Our hope is that this becomes a vibrant community with rich discussions, a large array of resources and of course, varying opinions.

We strongly believe in the principles of agile, but they must be modified for physical products. One of our first efforts was to develop a model – Modified Agile for Hardware Development (MAHD) – to support the unique needs of hardware. This model is based on our combined 50 years of experience every process you can imagine such six sigma, lean, phase-gate, scrum and more. Each process has something to offer and our goal was for MAHD to provide the most efficient methods without overwhelming terminology and dogma.

We welcome your feedback and insights and look forward to hearing from you.

Gary and Dorian
