Digital Manufacturing

Digitale Fabrik2_engl.jpg

Nowadays, cross-linked IT-tools become more and more important for planning and optimization of complex manufacturing and assembly structures. These support interdisciplinary tasks and enable the collaboration of all key personnel along the product life cycle. Digital Manufacturing provides an assortment of concerted tools and methods. Industrial engineers are supported in their daily affairs by the uniform access to all kind of planning contents. Based on simultaneous engineering by multiple production planning engineers, it results in a remarkable acceleration of process planning. Digital Manufacturing consolidates all kinds of planning auxiliary tools, which have been regarded individually so far.
