Systemweaver

Motionboard

We produce custom vehicles with different functions. Systemweaver helps us with challenges we face every day. On a push of a button we can get the requirements how to build the vehicle. 

We need efficient processes. At the beginning we started with excel sheets for safety analyses. But it is not a traceable way of working. Systemweaver gives us more flexibility from requirements, engineering, safety analysis, and concept, implementation and until testing.
