The first of a total of five Workshops of the BMBF joint project took place on the 25th of April 2016 at the Festo AG & Co. KG in Ostfildern at Stuttgart. The workshop provided an insight from many perspectives on Festo’s current activities concerning data based services and their corresponding business models. Additionally, common challenges and requirements for the development of a data based service were captured. In the upcoming weeks more workshops will follow together with our cooperation partners Areva, Bosch Thermotechnology, GreenGate and itarec, in which challenges resulting from digital transformation will be charged.
The knowledge gained from the workshops will subsequently build the foundation for the development of the methodical toolbox, which will support enterprises to expand their existing portfolio by data based business models in a guided and target-oriented way. As part of the pilot projects the toolbox will be tested by the participating partners and case studies will be acquired, which will be provided for interested companies.
