Dr. Herget-Wehlitz, MTU is driving forward digitalization at the company with its Digital Transformation Program. That’s a fairly abstract title—what exactly does it mean?
Over the past few years, we have devoted a substantial amount of attention to digitalization as it relates to our core products. In that time, our focus has expanded considerably. We are currently driving digitalization forward with 300 individual projects across the company. And our scope is poised to grow even larger in the future—spanning departments, divisions, even multiple locations. In short, we aim to move more towards an end-to-end approach. Digitalization can generate truly comprehensive added value only when we take a holistic perspective. We launched the Digital Transformation Program to coordinate our efforts in this area.
