CATHX OCEAN AGILE-LEAN CASE STUDY

Ammeon Enables Cathx Ocean To Deliver Faster Through Agile-Lean Consulting

Cathx Ocean design, manufacture and supply advanced subsea imaging and measurement systems. Software and hardware R&D projects in Cathx were challenged by lengthy development cycles and a lack of project visibility. In addition, Cathx was developing a business-critical product and needed help to set up new processes to plan and execute its delivery. Cathx selected Ammeon help overcome these challenges.

Ammeon recommended that Cathx undertake an Agile-Lean Start programme. Over a 6-week period, Ammeon reviewed development processes and established Agile-Lean work methods. Key improvements achieved at Cathx Ocean during their participation in Agile-Lean Start include:

  • Replaced multiple processes with a single standardised workflow and trained Cathx teams in its use.
  • A 79% reduction in the work backlog in the first week through the use of visual management systems and closer in-team collaboration.
  • A pilot project was brought from ideation to delivery in less than 5 days.

“The Agile-Lean Start has been a huge leap forward for us in adopting Agile practices,” said  Marie Flynn, COO, Cathx Ocean.

Planning and prioritisation of Research and Development work with the new processes and workflows is much simpler and more efficient. We now need to apply these practices to other areas and embed them in the company.”
