What is the role of design in digital transformation? How is digitalisation changing the design of installation equipment, and how is this feeding back into the business model? And what are the advantages when designers and engineers work together?

Among other things, they discuss aesthetics as a functional aspect, the demands associated with designing technical products and forward-looking topics such as the issue of customers interacting with objects. 

Moritz Rose, VP of Design at Viessmann, talks about the fundamental role of design in the transformation process, and how it is integrated in the overall value chain.
