Engineering Integration & Management Services

A single provider of system integration

During the entire development process for a product, we are at your side – even when we are talking about support processes and cross-sectional functions. Our “PMO as a service” advises and supports you on topics of product data and project management, digitalisation and process design, quality and environmental management, among others. Because only with the ideal combination of technology, quality and costs, while considering environmental demands, can innovative, sustainable projects be successfully implemented.

Engineering advice, methods, tools

The Engineering Integration & Management Services consultants head up and support the integration of technical and non-technical content, of the supporting functions and processes across the entire development process and through to the start of serial production.
Our teams manage the development process, reconcile contradictory product objectives, and ensure that client attributes are complied with. Our “PMO as a Service” helps with the developing and launching of efficient tools and methods for managing projects and processes.


Our mission: We offer our customers professional solutions in all transversal functions in product development – so that projects can be implemented successfully and future mobility designed together.
