Anyone remember how that worked?
In the middle of an extended product life cycle, discontinuities can arise from key suppliers disappearing or valuable engineers quitting. Hardly anybody has written down any detail in a specification, so valuable knowledge of functional details may become lost.
SCHMID mme regenerates knowledge from the bits and pieces available and completes the picture, protecting know how and engineering effort.
What about competitors?
Inventing a product also requires knowing about what competitors have already invented — not in order to copy, but to do better than they did.
Do they copy our invention?
Intellectual property theft is a serious threat to those inventing new ideas, but is hard to prove.
SCHMID mme analyzes competitors' devices and identifies any patent or industrial property infringements, supporting customers' legal department and providing engineering opinions in case of lawsuits.
