The challenge is to transform the Dr. Oetker Back-Club into an online community with various communication and interaction options which is attractive for younger generations as well as existing members and to expand the existing business model in all relevant dimensions.
Since 30 years the „Dr. Oetker Back-Club“ is a big success story and has grown to the leading community for baking enthusiasts in Germany. As the community consist of Dr. Oetker customers who signed up for a paid membership, their members gain diverse benefits such as an exclusive magazine and access to special baking events.
The community has been extremely successful in the offline environment. Still there is huge unused potential in the online world, especially in the lack of interactions between members and with Dr. Oetker. Due to such missing online features the Dr. Oetker Back-Club is not fully addressing the demands of younger generations.

Many offices are situated in quite old buildings which originally weren’t meant for that purpose. The layouts of these buildings are often confusing, so that internal staff and external visitors struggle to navigate. Furthermore, due to the structure of the buildings certain industry regulations such as security standards are hard to meet.
Exiting indoor navigation tools lack essential functions for a comprehensive solution. Next to the usual indoor navigation, an applicable solution would need additional benefits like a sufficient access management or mandatory warning notes for visitors.
The challenge is to develop an efficient digital solution, that includes and combines aspects like indoor navigation, security and access management based on the given infrastructure of Dr. Wolff.
One leverage to remain competitive in the market is a continuous optimization of production planning. The basis for production planning is a large amount of master data. This includes, e. g. stored times and process data such as average setup times, lead times, etc. Additionally, actual data for all production processes are recorded.
Currently the comparison of the actual data with the master data and the intelligent and continuous adjustment of the master data often does not take place. To improve production planning sustainably, master data cleansing based on artificial intelligence and cloud systems is required. Existing tools already head in the right direction but the perfect solution is not yet available.
The challenge is to develop a solution and implement a master data cleansing, based on
artificial intelligence, so that production planning can be improved to archive an enormous increase in efficiency.
