Virtualization is a crucial component in product creation because it makes for more efficient development of products and processes. This is the principle that guides our international, interdisciplinary team of some 15 research fellows and 20 student assistants in the on-going development of innovative solutions. Additionally, our team provides support for implementation and roll-out and for tailoring these solutions to fulfill the specific needs of industrial customers.

You have questions regarding research and development in the Virtual Product Creation division or require further information on selected research areas? In this case please address our contact persons. They are looking forward to your call!
