Basically, according to the Western way of counting, one does not begin to exist at all until the completion of the first year of life, because before that, strictly speaking, one is zero years old. According to the traditional East Asian way of counting, which is still practiced by many people in South Korea today, one is already one year old on the day of birth. In China, one is always one year older on Chinese New Year, so that in extreme cases a newborn can be two years old already one day after birth.
Well, we have experienced so much with ADVISIM3D and had so much work, as if the world's first and to this day unique virtual simulation software for
complex spray cleaning systems had actually turned two years old already on the day after its birth. Well, we have experienced so much with ADVISIM3D and had so much work, as if the world's first and to this day unique virtual simulation software for complex spray cleaning systems had actually turned two years old already on the day after its birth.
But ADVISIM3D is not, instead the standard software for the pharmaceutical, cosmetics, food, automotive or nozzle manufacturing industries is gradually establishing itself on the market 12 months after its launch. Challenges are becoming apparent, for example a certain reluctance on the part of long-serving engineers to have their experience knowledge enriched by a digital assistant. There are also features that are currently still missing, such as the ability to add one's own nozzles to the software simulation of the spray patterns of rotating nozzles.
After one year, the first interim balance of ADVISIM3D with many distributed productive and test licenses and encouraging customer feedback is nevertheless very positive overall. And more than that, we at ADVITEC are increasingly recognizing the enormous potential of our rapidly growing development expertise in the areas of robotics, automation and virtualization, especially for industrial cleaning. Several new research projects, some of which have already been awarded funding, show what a valuable contribution digitalization can make to reducing time, personnel and financial expenditure, as well as to reducing the ecological footprint and achieving greater sustainability. This encourages us to continue with full commitment.
We are looking forward to the second year with ADVISIM3D, the customer-oriented further development of an already very good product, and to the intensive cooperation with our research partners such as the Fraunhofer Institute IVV. And most of all, we are looking forward to as many customers as possible with different requirements and application scenarios that can continue to grow with ADVISIM3D and on which ADVISIM3D can also continue to grow.
