  • Through its structure, culture and mix of skills, the Fraunhofer CPM takes into account the complexity of programmed materials, the scope of their design and the wide range of manufacturing possibilities they offer.
  • The building blocks for success are self-organized and better understood work practices as well as agile cooperation. The work steps are adapted to the needs of clients in short iteration cycles.
  • The transparency of work progress and project controlling ensures that all project partners participate in the content, promoting a culture of mutual trust.
