ecs presents Automotive Benchmarking 4.0 at Reutlingen University

In a presentation for the students of the “International Project Engineering” course at Reutlingen University on January, 11, 2017, ecs Managing Director Dr. Hans Sporer explained extensively how Benchmarking in the automotive industry works. Among the topics were


  • Background: why Benchmarking is done so intensively in the automotive industry
  • Best Practice: what needs to be done in order to carry through a successful benchmarking project
  • Benchmarking 4.0: how the automotive industry already today uses digitalization to get comprehensive benchmarking results


A highlight of the presentation was the live demonstration in the internet of the benchmarking system operated by ecs co-operation partner A2MAC1. Many examples and the live demonstration of Benchmarking results evoked students’ vivid interest and enthusiasm.
