The interdisciplinary approach encompasses independent cross-departmental subject areas whose approaches to specialist knowledge are applied to answer questions, solve problems or develop products. In short, we bring together partial solutions into a successful whole.
To optimise this cross-departmental approach, Datwyler ensures that these individual methods are exchanged and communicated between departments, thus guaranteeing that the best possible solutions are reached.
This interdisciplinary team thinking is deployed throughout the product creation process for all products in prototyping and serial manufacture. Here, all members of the material development, construction, automation, engineering and purchasing departments work together on the solution for developing new products, or for reengineering existing ones.
To maximise the benefits of this process for our customers, Datwyler ensures that the following behaviours are observed throughout this process:
- A mutually beneficial collaboration between departments
- Reciprocal value and respect
- Adherence to commonly forged principles
- A robust cross-departmental team sprit
There is no holding back when involving expert external development partners in the process, or in subcontracting externally when necessary.
By maintaining an optimum level of interdepartmental communication and team-work, customer expectations and requirements can be respected and fulfilled in a timely manner.
Only with all departments working in collaboration can we can succeed in offering our customers the best possible solutions for their existing or new products.
