This paper suggests that relatively familiar software concepts and tools can be transformed to the "lean paradigm" when they are conducted within the modern industrial paradigm. Practical examples and experiences are given from a large-scale commercial and deliverable program, the Lockheed Martin Aeronautical Systems (LMAS) C-130J airlifter. It has been shown that the lean paradigm enables the MC OFP's software organization to produce a safe and superior product at low cost and risk, and thereby fully support the business goals of the C-130J program, the company, and the corporation
