Andreas Pehnack, Head of the Basic Component Development Group at Compart AG
Dirk Haun, Head of the Test & Build Group at Compart AG

The series of lectures by Compart comprise three presentations. First of all Mr. Pehnack will present the now traditional overview of the latest developments in base technology. New features and enhancements in the area of format filters are as much a part of this section as the further development of the basic products in the DocBridge Mill family. Following on from this, Mr. Haun will deliver an overview of the approaches and methods Compart uses for the creation and testing of new product versions. And finally Mr. Funke will give a not-to-be-missed live tour though the newly developed configuration options and user interface of the DocBridge Profiler. The concept he will present should set the direction for the development of user interfaces at Compart in the future.
