Welcome to the Lifecycle Engineering Solutions Center (LESC)

LESC is an innovative research facility at the KIT whose aims are the interdisciplinary collaboration between internal and external research institutions, as well as knowledge exchange and technology transfer to both the industry and society. It offers scalable and flexible development environments, from individual work spaces to large screen projections for innovative engineering solutions within the framework of product lifecycle management and virtual engineering.

LESC is a central platform which is available for the implementation, validation, evaluation and demonstration of research results in the field of lifecycle engineering. Being a center for modern virtual reality technologies, LESC contributes to raising awareness of trend-setters and paradigm shifts in various fields.

Scientific services ranging all the way from the first idea to its implementation are offered from a neutral position in LESC. A special role is given to the validation of interdisciplinary applications. In this context, LESC serves as a development and testing platform and enables access to modern infrastructure, especially for start-ups and small and medium-sized companies. LESC is furthermore a meeting point for activities, such as “Science meets Industry”, and a place for conferences, exhibitions, seminars, as well as cluster and networking activities.

LESC is an internationally visible center for all matters concerning lifecycle engineering. It is here that technologies and processes are combined with a creative environment. Furthermore, the virtual environment here allows innovative solutions to be devised from the first idea until they are marketable and, moreover, be comprehensively conducted. Our research areas lifecycle engineering (LE), collaborative engineering (CE) and virtual engineering (VE) complement each other, thus integrating procedural and systematical illustrations of product knowledge in product lifecycles. Seeing that LESC supports the entire product lifecycle, models of future products can also be experienced and tested here.
LESC therefore overcomes the obstacle that usually exists between an idea and its implementation.
