Since many years digital prototyping are already state of the art in series production. Rational behind this is the level of quality to be achieved in in a digital, 3D based design process for the high numbers of parts in series production.
However the concepts offers also great advantages for engineering to order processes if smartly applied. As an example experience from VIP completions projects will be referenced and best practices for business case generation, implementation tactics and target processes will be presented. The presented context may be applied in other ETO business as well such as yacht building, submarines etc.
