Software Engineering

Experience that pays off

In the field of logistics, special requirements need special solutions. We offer practical research, extensive experience in developing software for logistics, professional project management, and qualified IT strategic consulting. We also create custom solutions for complex problems. Our portfolio covers all of the necessary steps from theory to practice.

You have to keep thinking ahead if you want to play a leading role in the competitive marketplace. Although most known and recurring problems can be solved using standard software, problems that are out of the ordinary need to be recognized as early as possible and handled with new, visionary solutions.

However, new solutions need new, customized software concepts that effectively and efficiently support the processes. For this very reason, the Department of Software Engineering of the Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics IML combines innovation and research with practical development and user-oriented implementation.
