Research & Innovation

The world of production and logistics is constantly changing. New technological possibilities, especially in the areas of production technology, material flow concepts and accompanying digitalization and software solutions not only influence operational and administrative processes of our customers, but also enable us to break new ground in process and factory planning. In order to be able to develop sustainable and future-proof solutions for our customers, which are not only 'state-of-the-art', but often go beyond that, we maintain close cooperation with universities, colleges and research institutes.

Since we understand ourselves as implementation-oriented consultants, we are particularly interested in the transfer of practical solutions from research to industry. By offering and conducting a wide range of practice-oriented lectures and seminars at our partner universities, we therefore contribute to enriching scientific education with best practice knowledge. In research projects as well as bachelor and master theses, we also drive forward the development of innovative tools and methods. In doing so, we often work together with potential users and companies from our customer base.
