Industrial development and manufacturing would hardly be able to remain competitive without digital technologies. Digital engineering makes it possible to use a product’s digital design data in every stage of its design and manufacture. This makes products better and more reliable, expedites operations, conserves resources, and cuts costs sustainably.
Digital engineering is strategically important to Germany, a center of development and manufacturing. This makes it essential to develop solutions that provide new forms and types of organizational, semantic and technical interoperability for interdisciplinary collaboration. Such research and development is for specific applications and thus constitutes a decisive competitive and knowledge edge for the particular company.
