HMG convinced the jury with an innovative management and innovative processes.

After the meeting, the decision is being implemented right away. The management is always open to new ideas. Additionally, all employees are encouraged to go on an advanced training every year.

HMG uses a very special method of analysis – the Functional Anatomy method – which is based on use cases, to optimize the developmental process and eliminate redundant elements. This method has been realized successfully with all innovations (customers’ projects and HMG’s own product development) in the planned time frame and with the planned budget.
