Sustainable and holistic optimization of your R&D.

The development of innovative and successful portfolios of products and services is one of the central and most complex tasks of any company. At the same time, the transformation of innovation strategies and ecosystems in product development towards new business models, organizations, processes and collaborative networks is a constant challenge - and at the same time an opportunity.

We are the leading business and technology partner in shaping this transformation of the entire engineering value chain in the mobility and manufacturing ecosystem.

The challenges for R&D.

Responding flexibly to trends and customer demands, guaranteeing consistently high quality and setting new standards - that is the permanent field of tension between internal and external influencing factors the product development departments of many companies are facing. On the one hand, they provide essential impulses for the future viability of portfolios, where on the other hand, they are constantly confronted with changing framework conditions. The rapidly advancing digitalization increases both the speed and the potential for a sustainable transformation of all R&D processes. These are our customers’ central questions:

  • How can the performance of products and portfolios be increased along the entire value chain?
  • How can lead times, quality and efficiency in product development be optimized?
  • Which cross-domain working methods can be used to make product development more efficient, effective, flexible and modern?
  • How does collaboration in changing ecosystems improve overall R&D efficiency?

Data Driven Engineering

How engineering processes become more efficient based on data

White Paper: Product Compliance

Product Compliance - A major challenge for companies. Massive increases in official regulations and political requirements make product development processes more difficult. Vehicle manufacturers and suppliers need consistent integration of the new legal requirements. Without this, there is a risk of insufficient certification and lack of market access.
