Three new members in Q4
EAM is more topical than ever, as can be seen not least from the growing number of members of CBA Lab. No fewer than three companies joined the user association in the fourth quarter of 2021. We look forward to working with MTU Aero Engines, TRUMPF and TÜV Rheinland!
MTU Aero Engines is Germany's leading engine manufacturer and a globally established player. The company develops, manufactures, markets and supports commercial and military aircraft engines of all thrust and power categories, as well as stationary industrial gas turbines.
MTU has a presence in key regions and markets around the world through its subsidiaries and affiliates. MTU has only recently relaunched its EAM initiative and wants to make rapid progress there. Enterprise architect Hannes Schleibinger is looking forward to exchanging ideas in the CBA Lab network. He wants to learn from the experiences of other members and work together on current problems in a practical way to make sustainable decisions for MTU. He is currently particularly interested in EAM services that create measurable added value and in business IT alignment (end to end).
As a high-tech company, TRUMPF offers manufacturing solutions in the fields of machine tools, laser technology, electronics and Industry 4.0. The family-run company is active in over 70 countries worldwide.
For TRUMPF, the importance of software and, as a result, architecture has risen sharply. Even a machine manufacturer must master the software architecture landscape. "Through the CBA Lab, TRUMPF hopes to gain insights into best practices from other companies that have already successfully implemented their architectures and the associated organizations and processes," says Lead Enterprise Architect Cornelius Löffler. "In addition, feedback on TRUMPF approaches in this experienced community will be very helpful."
Safety and quality in almost all areas of business and life: TÜV Rheinland has stood for this for almost 150 years. The company's highly qualified experts test technical systems and products around the globe, accompany innovations in technology and business, train people in numerous professions, and certify management systems according to international standards. In this way, TÜV Rheinland's independent experts ensure trust along global flows of goods and value chains.
"EAM is still a young discipline at our company. Through our membership in CBA Lab, we would like to learn best practices from the experienced members and exchange experiences. On the other hand, we would also like to actively participate in order to jointly develop new content. Our initial focus is on the introduction of a structured EAM at TÜV Rheinland," explains IT Enterprise Architect Matthias Thiebes.
