Digital Lifecycle Management
„Go digital or go home”
Deeply rooted in the CONTACT DNA lies the aspiration to constantly optimize the digitalization of processes along the lifecycle to take data management and networking to a new level. With CONTACT Research, we pursue the same goal.
We work on strengthening collaboration and interoperability between different systems, organizations, or industries in a sustainable and future-proof way. Our research is focused on use cases along the entire product lifecycle. However, we do not limit ourselves to the established engineering industries, but systematically explore new fields of competence.
Our focus topics are clustered along the strategic triangle of digital sovereignty:
- Digitalization strategie
We develop new digitization strategies for various industries to determine and implement different types and degrees of digital transformation.
- Digital maturity
We research concepts, methods, and procedure models to increase the digital maturity level concerning the digital availability of data, management of processes, qualification of employees as well as integration of customers, partners, and suppliers
- Process patterns
We develop and implement process patterns to increase efficiency through process standardization and automation along the product life cycle.
Within a network of digitization pioneers from academics and industry, we jointly develop new methods and concepts, explore the flexible design of IT infrastructures, and validate these in various fields of industrial application. This brings us a step closer to our goal of digital sovereignty.
