Average number of days that cyber criminals have access to inadequately protected systems before they are discovered:
– Data security and data protection in mechanical engineering.
The number of engineers in Germany who are expected to enter retirement by 2029:
– That is why there’s no way around digitalisation.
“Before they can develop a digital strategy, all companies must first decide what digitalisation really means for them.”
In the whitepaper, you’ll find strategic approaches to developing digital strategies in mechanical engineering. Not only that, but Prof. Frank Piller (professor of technology and innovation management at RWTH Aachen University) shares some of his practical expertise in innovation and change management.
“Fuelled by the Covid-19 pandemic, increasing digitised communications will make workflows, data sharing and collaborations in construction more efficient.”
According to a survey of 295 designers and decision-makers conducted as part of the item study "How digital is mechanical engineering 2021? Opportunities and challenges of digitalisation in a country comparison".
“We will only be able to secure Europe’s reputation as an industrial hotspot if we collectively utilise our know-how to become better and faster.”
