Systems Engineering @ Automotive OEMs & Tier1-Supplier

Compare with leading R&D organizations

SE Studie Auszug

Established OEMs and Tier1 suppliers in the automotive industry are facing major challenges in three areas: new technologies, increasingly complex requirements, new ways of working together.

The trend is toward complex and software-based systems that must meet stringent regulatory requirements. Systems Engineering (SE) has proven to be a sustainable approach for dealing with complex systems and requirements.

With this study, we offer executives an industry comparison and also best practices and levers for “Systems Engineering Excellence.” Download our SE study here:
