The search for the best compromise.
Which unit do you manage?I manage the Mercedes-Benz Cars interior design unit.
What are your unit’s main activities?We design all vehicle interiors starting with the first sketch and also take care of additional process steps, such as drafts and CAD models, clay models, hard models, equipment models or highly accurate data verification models. We design every single detail right down to the final series production car.
Describe a typical working day.A typical working day is a highly varied affair. I visit the workstations of many models and make decisions on aspects of design details. In many cases, this can be described as searching for the best compromise to achieve technical production feasibility. In addition to working on project designs, I deal with a host of different subjects, such as assigning new, urgent tasks to teams, budget topics, committee meetings, but I also take time to attend to strategies or presentations.
