Agile methods are increasingly being implemented in physical product development disciplines, such as automotive development. Once agile methods have been successfully introduced, teams strive to determine the status quo of their agile maturity. For this purpose, agile maturity models have been developed, but these models primarily refer to software development. This work aims at deriving a model that is suitable for teams in physical product development and is based on the agile framework Scrum. The presented Agile Maturity Model consists of eleven dimensions and five levels. In addition, the dimensions that have a high influence on the agile maturity of teams were identified during a study. These are: Agile Events and Iterative Approach, Backlog Management, Team and Agile Values and Principles.

Keywords: Agile Maturity Assessment, Physical Product Development, Scrum Maturity Model
