Automotive software industry today is more globalized due to availability of low cost domain specific service providers, and this is leading to growth of supply chain from Tier-1 to Tier-2 and so on. Accordingly there are numerous challenges in coordinating this supply chain. Any obstacles to the flow of information will result in delays thereby having an impact on time to market and cost

In this paper we present the actual case study of application of lean principles in an automotive software maintenance project and how it has helped in achieving an efficient system by improving customer value and reducing waste.
