Requirements vary greatly based on application and intended user.

For example, military equipment requires different characteristics than a service worker's uniform.

Start safely with technical performance descriptions.

Hohenstein's technical performance descriptions include a clear summary of parameters or requirement specifications for selection and production - whether for internal, supply chain or public tender purposes.

Using prototypes or series products and an extensive database, we document the “status quo” in detail, then create charts, drawings and photos to facilitate understanding across languages.

Process Descriptions

This detailed description of the manufacturing steps explains the sequence in which processing steps are executed, using technical drawings and photos to create worldwide understanding.
