Intersections between competences and areas of expertise
It is in the intersection of the different competences and areas of expertise that new ideas and innovation are created.
Global product development within the Fuji Kiko Group gives the possibility to share technologies and competences.
By working with partners JCSSE could add new technology and competence to the product and additional value to the customer, Work in multi-competence teams.
A multi-competence team gather and intersect the different competences.

Visualization and prototypes
We want to achieve the best driving environment in the vehicle. Therefore it is very much about how the user perceive our products in the end user environment.
To be able to perceive our products during product development it is most important to visualize and make prototypes for testing and evaluation.
We have our own prototype workshop and test lab to support these activities.
Flexible Product Development Process competence could be included.
