Systems Engineering and Model-Based Systems Engineering

The development of smart, connected products is a highly interdisciplinary process. Not only must the engineering disciplines traditionally involved in mechanical, electrical/electronic and software development be integrated in the development process at an early stage but also new stakeholders , so that their various requirements can be incorporated: the production planning department, which has to […]

From Industry 4.0 to New Business Models

Industry 4.0 involves far more than increasing efficiency and flexibility in manufacturing through the intelligent networking of machines, systems, workpieces and IT systems. First and foremost, it involves the development of smart, connected products, which, in the view of a plant engineer, also includes the machines. And it involves the development of new, service-oriented business […]

Smart Engineering Challenges

Smart Engineering is intended to provide support for the development of smart products and services, as well as a networked production setup that includes the associated production systems, over the entire product lifecycle. The objective is an end-to-end digital value chain. What concrete changes can be expected? What opportunities does Smart Engineering offer? The digitization […]
