We combat the risk of failing to give our customers’ requirements adequate consideration during the development process by conducting extensive trend analyses, customer surveys and scouting activities. These measures also ensure that trends are recognized at an early stage and that their relevance for our customers is verified in good time.
We counter the risk that it may not be possible to develop products or modules within the specified timeframe, to the required quality standards, or in line with cost specifications by continuously and systematically monitoring the progress of all projects. In addition, we regularly compare this progress with the original targets; in the event of deviations, suitable countermeasures are initiated in good time. Our end-to-end project organization supports effective cooperation among all areas involved in the process. It ensures that specific requirements are incorporated into the development process as early as possible and their implementation planned in good time.
Our wide variety of research and development activities means that risks are not concentrated on particular patents or licenses.
