The paper presents
the agile approach in industrial engineering and discusses similar ways of
agile development in different disciplines. Societal changes and technological innovation
brought significant changes in the market, leading to highly demanding users and
frequent changes in product design. Agile is implemented in different
disciplines as a response to current changes in the market. Industry 4.0 as
part of “High-Tech Strategy 2020 for Germany” involves agile principles and
brings latest technological trends in production process. Agile framework was
firstly used in manufacturing but along with that it started to develop as a
lightweight framework in software development. Agile is interdisciplinary and
brings flexibility to organization. For successful implementation of agile
principles, experiences and recommendations from all the industries should be
