What role does production technology play

Importance of production technology in the development of mechatronic products


Future innovations in automobile construction will largely be realized through mechatronic systems. The associated increase in complexity places new demands on the product development process. In addition to the increased requirements for functional development, the representation of a qualified production technology plays a central role. The BMW article describes a methodical concept for the connection between functional development and production technology.
