Management consulting

As management consultants with a detailed understanding of technology and engineering, we equip your development units with the required software skills in all areas of E/E development. For example, we show you the best ways to set up product and service architectures, or organise operational and organisational structures for R&D to meet requirements in keeping with your business goals.

To Management consulting

    Improvement programmes

    Integrated end-to-end improvement programmes ensure that innovation capabilities are embodied and embraced in everyday project implementation: so we conduct assessments to determine areas of potential improvement. Then we optimise organisational structures and your workflows in E/E development to ensure all development processes are matched and dovetailed. In so doing, we take industry standards such as Automotive SPICE®, functional safety and key security requirements into account, with an emphasis on agile principles.

    Based on a methodical approach to engineering and clear structures, we reduce complexity and develop methods that are best matched to your projects. We also ensure that processes are organised in keeping with industry standards and the requirements of

    • Automotive SPICE®
    • Functional safety
    • Digital data management
    • Systems engineering
    • Automotive security
    Play

    By applying agile methods and practices, as well as bolstering the future viability of your product development function, we also ensure that your company is in a position to react rapidly to market dynamics and that industry developments are immediately reflected in your products. This empowers your E/E development to deliver projects reliably, always with a strong focus on customer needs. 

    To the Improvement programmes

    Our coaching sessions and training courses provide you and your colleagues with the required understanding of front-line practice, offering clear explanations of the best way to perform the role that is expected of you.
