CHALLENGER

A digital business model within the user journey of healthy nutrition

The variety of nutritional options, full calendars and further factors overwhelm people in the pursuit of healthy nutrition. Due to that the habit of daily cooking „from-scratch“ has declined. Based on this challenging development Miele seeks for solutions, which support the daily cooking process and experience. Thereby the convenience for the customer has to be the focus. The challenge is to create a digital business model within the user journey of daily cooking, which adds value for customers and creates motivation for healthy nutrition.

An innovative interactive knowledge management with daily usability

The success of GEA products is based on excellent application and technology knowledge of their employees. A generation change, a rapidly changing market environment and a strong market growth requires new approaches to build and provide expertise worldwide. Thereby it is not sufficient to just focus on existing knowledge (e. g. due to e-Learning). Likewise, the speed of gaining new knowledge is crucial. The challenge is to develop a digital knowledge management approach, which enables a daily interactive and continuous knowledge creation and diffusion without additional bureaucratic effort by the GEA employees.

An IoT-platform that connects different components of a building to create synergies

Inside a building there are a lot of different components with individual purpose and settings. All of them impact the operation costs, performance and condition of a building. At the same time most components contain of certain data sets which are collected from many data sources. Collecting and combining these diverse data sets would provide a basis to analyze and increase the efficiency of a building overall. It would reduce operating costs, improve the functions of the building and create an opportunity for sufficient monitoring of the building’s condition. The challenge is to create and implement an IoT-platform which enables WAGO to monitor the collected data from connected components and to control the building’s operations to enhance a building’s performance.
