Smart Service Engineering (S2E)

The research group Smart Service Engineering (S2E) investigates solutions for systematically designing and developing smart service systems at the interface between technical and economic issues. The research conducted by S2E includes:

  • Systematic methods, technologies, and platforms for acquisition, storage, and analysis of unstructured and sensor-based data for deriving smart services
  • Development of applications in industrial manufacturing, healthcare, wellness and sport as well as agriculture amongst others
  • Economic analysis and projection of changes in companies caused by smart services, esp. in innovation management and product design
  • Innovative business modeling by means of smart services

Main research aspects are conceptual modeling and systematic development of smart services, application of semantic web technologies and the evolvement of technical smart service platforms.
