Research

Together with our cooperation partners from science and practice, we conduct research on topics related to the methodical development of market-relevant, sustainable products and solutions . In this way, we aim to promote process excellence in a digital world in order to accelerate innovation and business creation.

Our research topics focus on a holistic view of product lifecycle management and are strongly linked to Siemens Advanta - our practice and collaboration partner.

Although basic research builds the scientific foundation of our work, we consistently ensure that our research findings are application-led. To this end, we cooperate with and maintain an extensive regional, national, and international network of partners from practice and academia. In addition, we actively disseminate our research findings in the scientific community and business practice.
