Project management

The continually increasing development speed of modern products and their competitiveness on the market presents project management with special demands. It is important to permanently coordinate across the technical competences, the quality, production and finance departments on the entire development process so that the product can be developed from milestone to milestone until series production.

In an earlier phase of the product development process, the product cost management team already secured the profitability of the product. A successful product must be innovative, impress the market (design to market), be of high quality (design to quality) but ultimately, i.e. first of all it must turn out to be profitable for the company (design to cost). Therefore, the product costs from all phases of the product life cycle must be analysed and finally, optimised via product design in order to achieve the company targets.
