Product and project development

From the idea to the SOP

AMZ supports product and process development in companies.

Technology scouting and project development

AMZ collects a great deal of information about trends and technological innovations that is relevant to automotive usage. Research is carried out via databases, publications, trade fair publications and collaborations with universities and research institutions as well as member companies.

Working with AMZ as an external technology scout prevents operational blindness. The spun network of experts and the comprehensive trend database offer a perspective that companies can never have on their own.
