Develop products and platforms consistently, from market segments to production in a consistent manner

When developing new products and platforms, it is important to consider all requirements of engineering, production, product management, marketing, procurement and logistics. This drives you to consider aspects such as costs, customer value, sustainability, manufacturability at an early stage. However, the challenge lies in managing and aligning these diverse requirements. Moreover, the shift from purely mechanical products to mechatronic or even cyber-physical systems significantly increases product complexity and variety.. To address this, systematic complexity management becomes imperative.
