Today, digital methods, processes and IT tools are indispensable in the product life cycle, from design to recycling. They help to plan and control product development times, product quality and costs. At Fraunhofer IPK, we are realizing the vision of a complete digitization of product development and planning processes – so that you as a manufacturer or user can consider the later phases of your product's life cycle at an early stage.
