During the last decade agile methods have been a vast success in the domain of software development. This paper investigates whether these methods can be successfully transferred to the domain of physical product development in order to address the fundamental challenges of increased marked speed, development uncertainty and product complexity. The paper compares two cases from industry and education where agile methods are used in physical product development. The comparison between the cases is conducted within five thematic areas, which creates an overview of the challenges that may occur when implementing agile methods. The present paper is concluded by a discussion and conclusion drawing up the main challenges experienced and well as the benefits of utilising agile methods in physical product development.
