Operating environment

Renewal of existing operating models or creating new

Digitalization changes our operating environment and the entire engineering industry. Improving competitiveness often means the renewal of our customers’ existing operating models. Our customers develop their operations by focusing on their core business, customer cooperation and harmonizing their operating practices. They seek ways to outsource non-core business functions while reducing the number of partners they work with and engaging in closer cooperation with their selected partners.

Our service offering and the know-how of our personnel support the renewal of the customer’s business.

Digitalization is transforming
manufacturing processes 


Digitalization is the most significant factor that is transforming our business environment and the engineering industry while providing opportunities for growth and development for players like Etteplan. 

Digitalization is expected to revolutionize production processes and products in the manufactur-ing industries. Intelligent and connected production processes increase efficiency and enable new business and revenue models for traditional industrial companies. In practice, this is a new area of engineering that combines in-depth equipment know-how and technology expertise. The courage to invest and take advantage of the opportunities of IoT varies by industry. 


New paths in service-based business

Machinery and equipment manufacturers may find new paths to growth in service-based business by analyzing and leveraging data accumulated from machinery and equipment. Digitalization can, for example, lead to a better understanding of how machines are used, increase their capacity and change their technical attributes. 

The availability of top experts is affecting industry development


According to various sources, Germany will have a shortage of 250,000 engineers in 2020. There is also extremely intense competition for highly competent experts in engineering and digi-talization in many other countries. 

The availability of competent professionals is an important factor for ensuring profitability and business continuity. Companies in the engineering services industry are competing for the same experts as machinery and equipment manufacturers. Key success factors in attracting highly competent professionals include, for example, the employee’s development opportunities and well-being at work.
