Managing Complexity

For us engineering means customization: The process always begins with the description of our customers' objectives, needs and wishes. This task is our challenge and our engineers invest all their expertise in the development of a solution that meets or even exceeds this goal.

Engineering can be executed in various scopes, ranging from a rather basic approach up to a comprehensive total system approach that invests a completely new solution to a defined task. While basic engineering actually means to adapt a given PGM component execution to different manufacturing technologies, a comprehensive system approach includes the selection, definition and calculation of both, PGM component and its periphery. It also includes complex situation procedures and their practical validation.
