Many companies that have been working success- fully withLeanfor some years are now implementingLeanProduct Development,LPD. Even though much has been written about theLPDconcept,amain body of theLPDliterature is promoting the concept without objections. Accordingly, criticism towardsLPDtends to be undividedly negative to the concept. The contribution of the present study is twofold. First, it summarizes previous research about theLPDconcept inamodelin accordance with Enterprise Architecture terminology. This section also includesastructured breakdown of tools mentioned inLPDliterature. Second, the paper discusses both advantages and disadvantages with the concept, aiming to present an unfeigned picture ofLPD, using examples from Swedish industries. Thereby, the study clarifies which expectations thatacompany starting to implementLPDreasonably can have on the concept.
