This work describes a method for analyzing the Product Development Systems waste drivers and its causes. Although waste identification and elimination along the value chain has proven useful to PDS improvement, previous work focuses on the waste identification, rather than diagnosing the waste causes on a particular company. This work aims to fill this gap by proposing a method that determines the possible root causes to wastes on a project, and shows the expected wastes from the most common “problems in projects” faced by a particular enterprise.
