Industry clients expect individual solutions, customers of consumer products want to be different and wish for personalized goods. In short, both B2B and B2C require individualized production processes. At the same time, the resulting large number of variants has to remain manageable, both technically and with respect to cost. Possible approaches will include platform strategies and modular construction, as well as sophisticated supply chains, scheduling procedures, and an interconnected and fully integrated production. Master data form the precondition for flexible manufacturing processes and in turn need to be described by attributes and classified according to industry standards. Higher flexiblity also leads to increasingly complex management of requirements in product development and design.
We have comprehensive expertise in standardization, quality management, and requirements engineering. We also cooperate closely with all relevant industry councils and associations.
