The automotive industry is on the threshold of fundamental changes. Digitalization is the main force driving this transformation. Customer requirements are becoming more varied and complex, and this affects the entire product lifecycle. We are connecting our entire automotive value chain step by step – from digital design to networked production and all the way to digital after-sales. Thanks to the digital networking of our global development locations, we can develop more quickly and efficiently thereby incorporating new ideas quickly and directly into products. And we can do this 24/7. This also benefits our customers worldwide. One buzzword that is frequently mentioned in this regard in Germany is “Industry 4.0.”
