Today, digital methods, processes and IT tools are indispensable in the product life cycle, from design to recycling. They help to plan and control product development times, as well as product quality and costs. The design of tomorrow’s factories requires robust virtual planning and simulation in factory planning: Intelligent planning methods, secure virtual operation and novel haptic interactions in factory prototyping.

How to cooperate with us

A step-by-step guide
  • Company approaches the Fraunhofer IPK Project Office for Advanced Manufacturing at ITA with an inquiry
  • Definition of project scheme
  • The international team of experts, together with the company, discuss and defines and the project scope, demands and requirements
  • Our team proposes the best contract model for hiring the Fraunhofer IPK Project Office at ITA, which depends on the division of work and financing source
  • A proposal is developed by our team
  • The contract between the parties is prepared and the company places the order (non-disclosure agreements can also be prepared in parallel)
  • We carry out the project
  • Presentation of results upon project completion
