The aim of the PCV Group is clearly stated: the abbreviation in the company’s name stands for “People Creating Value”. A team of 40 engineers, scientists and administrators who, supported by other experts from a variety of disciplines when necessary, develop and optimise new products – also in terms of the associated production costs. These “nerds”, who are based in Enschede in the Netherlands, possess valuable know-how that has, so far, been used mainly by multinational companies in the household appliances, medical technology and industrial sectors. In this interview, Leo Giesen, a mechanical engineer by training, a Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) Black Belt, and a consultant with the PCV Group, offers some insights.

Fred van Dijk, Bart Velthuizen, Stefan Ostermann, Jeroen Wijlens, Gerdjan Pape and Lex van Dockum took a look at the latest developments in the area of household technology. Some innovations stood out to them in particular:
Electric motorcycles are the future. But the technology still has a long way to go before this new standard is adopted. Bram Norp juggles his day job as an engineer at PCV Group with an exciting extracurricular project: he and a team of ambitious students are developing the Electric Superbike Twente.
‘To manage is to know’ – but choosing the right measuring method can be tricky, particularly if there are many variables involved. That’s why choosing the appropriate method for collecting data and gathering information is a vital part of the process. Our team always focuses on the cost and expenditure involved in acquiring insights at the ‘right’ stage of the development process.
During IFA 2017, the world’s leading trade fair for consumer electronics and domestic appliances in Berlin, .we saw some very exciting use of new technologies for different product groups providing inspiring food for thought.
