Process Optimization

As a part of continuous and long-term sustainable testing and optimization of existing processes, we place particular importance to the optimization of our development and design processes. This includes a continuous advancement of the methods used together with a standardization extending beyond locations and teams and an increasing automatization of the tools. Thus, in particular CATIA V5 provides a good interface for automating recurring workflows through the use of macros and templates. This means that our designers can better focus on their general design tasks. In addition, complex and special subjects are being served by expert macros. In this way, for example head impact areas of a dashboard, amongst other factors, can be defined in early development phases or sensor and pendulum tests conducted for a crash management system. These tools can be systematically selected via a specially developed start center integrated in the work environment with saved features catalogue.
