Capital goods design

Nowadays, designs in mechanical engineering are becoming more of a decisive buying factor. Where technology, quality and price of the different providers is comparable, design is decisive. Industrial design belongs to the soft sales factors which have a significant contribution to the success of a product. The central tasks of the technical design are the shape and color conception, the brand and corporate design developments, and of course the improvement of the user experience with a machine. In the foreground, these are always the specific target groups and the optimization of the central handling processes.

When designing a product, another essential target of the design in mechanical engineering is the emotionalization of the product. The product shows its specific and technical innovation by a special appearance and exceptional design. Our numerous and very successful projects convinces people with a striking design, formal long-life cycle, brand identity forms and the innovative use of material. We are distinguished by our decades of experience in technical design, the extensive industry knowledge and also our numerous design awards, which we receive for our work every year.

"User interface design"

Design and functional development of a user interface. Interface is a part or an act, in which a person makes contact with a machine or a product. The simplest example therefore is a light-switch: it‘s not part of the person, neither part of the machine (light), but an interface between. For being useful and important for persons, the interface should be based on human needs and skills. If you look at it systematically user interface belongs to the „Man Machine System“ (MMS): Man  ↔ Man-Machine-Interface ↔ Machine. Different sciences are focused on that theme, e.g. informatics, the Cognitive Science research and psychology. The basic knowledge for user-friendly interface design is developed in design and ergonomics. The specific field of activity is Cognitive Ergonomics, System Ergonomics and Software Ergonomics (usability engineering).
