We cooperate with you in the following core topics:
- technology analysis
- technology roadmaps
- technology risk management
- technology scouting
- technology projects (engineering, studies, analyses)
- systematic kowhow management
- patent management
Our goal is to support you for obtaining a significant competitive advantage with respect to your competitors.
For a systematic analysis, a set of processes and tools is made available.
- Degree of Maturity
Based on the NASA TRL (Technology Readyness Level) scheme with adaptations to different technologies and processes, a pragmatic and solid analysis can be made of your specific technology requirements, the maturity levels needed and their related time schedules and financial requirements.
- Market Access
Technology advantages can serve as market barriers for competitors and fast followers. Part of your service is to develop those advantages for you and to sustainably secure them.
- Customer Benefit
The transfer of technical innovations into products is in general complex and costs time and money. To evaluate the effort with respect to the achievable customer benefit helps you to select the right balance between the investment into new technologies and the related risks for your business.
- Make or buy
This overall analysis provides you with a basis for a solid make or buy decision in order to integrate new technologies into your products.
We support you to develop the relevant roadmaps, check their consistency and link them with quantifiable and measurable parameters. This comprises the selection of core technologies, the definition of milestones in conjunction with maturation gates and the necessary financial and human ressources.
We support you in the regular control of achievements and the potentially needed adaptations of the road maps.
In cooperation with you we evaluate those opportunities and risks for your specific situation. This allows you to strengthen your technological market position, it helps you to avoid high risks and to generate a stable growth.
We support you in the search for new and emerging technologies – locally and globally. We analyse these according to your priorities and search for potential cooperations with partners in order to secure your technology advantage.
- Flight physics
- Structural dynamics
- Noise and vibration
- Systems engineering
Through our excellent network we can offer also project work in other technical areas as:
- Energy conversion
This includes the classification and documentation of the existing technical skills and their their degree of maturity for the evaluation of future needs in short and long term aspects. Some skills can be acquired by focused recruiting of specialists and some needs can be fulfilled by systematic training and coaching of your staff.
The existing know how on relevant processes, procedures and technical developments, which are essential for the quality of your products needs to be categorized and documented in order to maintain the know how in your company. This also prevents the potential loss of core competencies, when people are leaving the company.
