Integrated Systems Design

Complex systems require comprehensive engineering. By integrating software, electronic and mechanical expertise, 3M creates systems that complement each other and enable exceptional performance. These disciplines are further enhanced by predictive modelling, human-factor engineering and industrial design. The result is a blend of functionality and elegance in products as simple as a tape dispenser or a sanding tool and as complex as 3M’s multi-dimensional circulation and security systems for libraries.
