PROXIA awarded research contract for the “GiBWert” project
Innovative added value structures
GiBWert & PROXIA - designing innovative modules and added value structures
The research project funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research has been set up to carry out research for the next three years and is due to report in March 2015. Nine renowned research companies – including PROXIA Software AG - are working to equip the production of tomorrow with a variety of efficient products.
GiBWert & PROXIA - developing methodology
Logical modular systems form the basis for optimizing product variety. The highlighted areas of production also play a decisive role. Therefore, the central task and focus of the research project is to analyze the entire value chain. In order to develop the necessary methodology for the efficient development and analysis of modular systems in mechanical engineering, the first task is to establish the specific requirements for a modular development process.
GiBWert & PROXIA – setting standards for product variety
Highly qualified partners have been selected in order to ensure success, i.e. to guarantee that the project is application-based. The result should be to provide a standard modular structure and offer the possibility of creating a varied product program from the smallest possible number of modules.
It’s no longer a pipe dream to transfer this to other industries such as renewable energy, medical technology, the automotive industry and electromobility, to name just a few. This is possible thanks to the easy configuration of processes.
