Fraunhofer Numerical Simulation of Products, Processes Alliance

In the Fraunhofer Alliance for Numerical Simulation of Products and Processes, twenty institutes pool their expertise in the development and improvement of simulation techniques.

The simulation of products and processes today plays a decisive role in all phases of the product life cycle, from model-based materials development and simulation of manufacturing processes to operating characteristics and product placement on the market.

The object of the alliance is to address institute-overarching issues and to represent the interests of the member institutes as a central point of contact for public-sector and industrial customers. In particular, the pooling of expertise from the I&C sector with materials and components know-how as well as with surface technology and production engineering promises to yield innovative results.
