Thank you for your feedback. I wanted confirmation that Agile is not limited to software, which was my understanding, too.

I am currently on a firmware and hardware project. One team member commented that they didn't think that Agile works the same as it does for software, which I questioned and why I posted my note to the list.

I appreciate your feedback!

While I have not heard first hand of anyone using Agile in hardware
production, I do know that people are using it for non-software related
projects. The process and philosophy can be used against any task-based
project or scenario that you can complete in small increments, with a team
effort moving the project along.

We have used the Agile method to handle our office move, the rewrite of a
User's Guide, and the planning of a large company function.

What kinds of questions do you have, and what kind of help are you looking
