Aachen Pool of Ingenuity

CONBILITY® is located in Aachen, Germany, at the border triangle of Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands. We´re using our strong network at the RWTH Campus, which is one of the biggest research landscapes in Europe for enterprises and research institutions. Here, 260 research institutes and more than 4,500 scientists develop the most advanced materials and production methods on over 800,000 m2.
The close connection and involvement in research and development projects guarantees continuous improvement of our products and to offer a wide range of services.

Our core-cooperation partner is the Aachen Center for integrative lightweight production (AZL). AZL is specialized in the development and analysis of full-scale production chains for lightweight products. OPLYSIS® has been developed in close cooperation with AZL on basis of a joint-partner-project with 34 industrial partners (including Henkel, Siemens, Toyota, ThyssenKrupp). We call this excellency right on our doorstep our Aachen Pool of Ingenuity.


The world needs good ideas. The more, the better. Unfortunately, having a good idea is just not enough. You also have to be able to realize it. That is what we are there for. With high class consulting, sophisticated software and our extensive production knowhow, we want to make sure, that the world's best ideas don't just stay ideas, but become economically producible.


With our Ideas to Production approach, we help producing companies to make the right decisions faster and more qualified and to successfully realize their ideas.


«As globally active company in material supply, Mitsui Chemicals wants to meet today's requirements of high flexibility and short response time to constantly changing markets. Not only within the composite business, we always have to face the challenge to understand highly cost-intensive and dynamic market situations. OPLYSIS, with its possibility to simulate production scenarios by varying easily process elements or resources, can help us to understand new markets and also to respond flexibly to customer needs with our own production.»
Christos Karatzias, Business Development Engineer, Mitsui Chemicals Europe GmbH
«AVANCO‘s brought product range including tubes and profiles as well as prismatic lightweight components demands a tailored process flow and flexible costing solutions. OPLYSIS supports this individualized approach starting in the product development phase by modeling different production scenarios. Incoming customer inquiries can be visualized and discussed transparently regarding the potential process layout, resulting costs structures and potential costs drivers.»
Markus Hildebrandt, Project Management, AVANCO GmbH
«The high flexibility of OPLYSIS supports us in early stage evaluation of new materials and production technologies with regard to costs and production capabilities. The structured modelling approach is helping us share and leverage information efficiently.»
Dr. Andrew Willet, Production Engineering Division, Toyota Motor Europe NV/SA
«FEV Consulting combines top management consulting expertise with deep technical and engineering capabilities in order to create pragmatic solutions to the complex issues of our customers from automotive and other technical industries. OPLYSIS effectively supports our cost & value engineering team to prepare detailed should-cost calculations, transparent mapping and optimization of production processes, develop new production concepts and to determine target costs. During collaborative workshops with our clients, OPLYSIS shows it’s strength in quick and flexible process mapping - results can be analyzed and discussed directly during the workshop and optimization ideas are easily implemented virtually.»
Christian Speuser, Principal, FEV Consulting GmbH
«With more than 100 manufacturing plants and technical centers worldwide our company is the the global leader in automotive interiors.

Dr. Oliver Becker, Executive Director Process Innovation at Yanfeng Automotive Interiors
«Fast and reliable cost calculations are essential for our specialised products with a high amount of product variants. The database function of OPLYSIS is one essential function to document and make use of our experience for the calculation of future production scenarios. By this, we speed up our quotation process and our 25 employees can concentrate on creating value instead of spending time on administration.»
Bernd Burgwedel, Managing Director, IBK-Fibertec GmbH
«With OPLYSIS, we are able to set up economic evaluations of new production scenarios far more effectively and expeditiously than before. New process and material combinations we think of or have already developed can be related to the state of the art within seconds by modelling in only one calculation window. This enables us to evaluate cost, times and performance of the new production scenarios in direct comparison. »
Arne Böttcher, Head of department Composites and Polyurethane Technology, Institute of Plastics Processing (IKV)
«With OPLYSIS, we found a powerful software tool, to store, exchange and reuse our wide range of expertise. The know-how ranges from materials and processes up to equipment and economical correlations. OPLYSIS also provides an integrated database for effective collaboration within our team. The agile and intuitive modelling of production technologies - especially in early design stages - encourages the discussion with our project partners and supports us in gaining a common understanding within the team at every stage of the project.»
