Dr. Bichlmeier, on the one hand one needs an aesthetically pleasing banknote design; on the other, one has to design for high-tech manufacturing processes. Can a production process also have a beautiful “design?”
Bichlmeier: That’s achieved when all processes and procedures blend seamlessly. When the manufacturing process works, the 5 million banknotes planned for Wednesday evening are stacked on the pallets by Wednesday evening. Then a production process is beautiful; it’s smooth and it’s productive.
