Competence Areas

New centers of technology, production techniques and factory planning strategies are being researched for energy- and resource-efficient production in the three competence areas of “Powertrain”, “Car Body Manufacturing” and “Data and Energy Management 2.0”. Then they are field-tested in joint collaboration with our industrial partners.

We research in the following areas

Ultra-short process chains


Developing resource-efficient technologies under realistic production conditions

Car body construction

The intelligent factory

Data- and energy management 2.0
