We counter the risk of not taking customer requirements into account sufficiently during development by conducting extensive trend analyses, customer surveys and scouting activities. These measures ensure that trends are recognized at an early stage and that their relevance for our customers is verified in good time.
In addition, there is a 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. To avoid this, we continuously and systematically monitor the progress of all projects and compare this with the original targets. As a result, suitable measures can be initiated in good time in the case of deviations. Our end-to-end project organization ensures that all areas involved in the process cooperate effectively. This enables specific requirements to be 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.
