Systems Engineering

The Next Level of Product Development

Systems Engineering

Integrated Product and Service Development

The increasing complexity of technical products and the shift in business models toward product and service combinations have a considerable impact: product development becomes system development. It is necessary to plan the lifecycle of a customer-driven service, to verify business cases and to implement them in cooperation with partners. Control of the new interfaces and of related topics are fundamental challenges for established processes and organizations. A systematic approach and interdisciplinary work, especially in the early phases, ensure that possible sources of errors are detected early and risks are eliminated. Issues become subsequently controllable and cost-intensive modifications can be avoided. With Systems Engineering we ensure efficient, customer-driven product development and set the course for your future success.

What is Systems Engineering?

A simple definition is: Systems Engineering enables the interdisciplinary development of products and services. It addresses the product to be developed and/or the service, as well as the associated project and organization. Accordingly, Systems Engineering is an enabler for the complex systems of tomorrow.

Who needs Systems Engineering?

The question concerning “whether” and “how much” in terms of Systems Engineering is driven by the positioning of the company on the market and among the competition – the Systems Engineering strategy is derived from this.
