- Working at XITASO
“Industrie 4.0 Bavaria – Production and business models for tomorrow” is a project of the Bavarian branch of the German Engineering Federation (VDMA) concerning, among other things, the opportunities presented to companies in the capital goods industry through digitization. The idea is to show decision-makers and persons with responsibility for Industrie 4.0 processes how digitization leads to quicker, more efficient and better processes and thus brings advantages in terms of reduced costs and increased competitiveness.
To participate in this digitization offensive, and to set an example, VDMA Bavaria had the idea of creating an events app which would enable the digitization of information and tasks relating to VDMA events.
Tasks and Aims
The task for XITASO consisted, on the one hand, of developing a web interface which would allow the event organizers to enter event-specific information without requiring knowledge of programming. This ensures a high degree of re-usability of the app, which in turn saves costs and time.
On the other hand, an app also needed to communicate with this web interface to provide a clear representation of the entered information for event participants. For this, the following menu items had to be available:
Current news and events entered via the web interface should be displayed under the menu items. It must also be possible to use the app to access external websites to obtain further information.
The Voting menu item should perform the usual analog process digitally. The aim here was to permit voting via the app during an event. For this, event-specific questionnaires are shown in the app and users can enter their answers and comments directly via smartphone. The linked web interface enables questionnaires to be easily created for an event. Beyond this, the evaluation of these questionnaires is to be performed digitally and then prepared and visualized for the event organizer via the web interface.
The Info page is intended to provide general information about the project as well as the imprint.
A user-friendly and attractive app which enables VDMA Bavaria to keep its members up to date concerning news and events.
Thanks to the live voting function, the app is taking an initial step in digitizing typically analog processes.
Beyond this, the development of a web interface achieves high re-usability. This means: It is no longer necessary to develop a dedicated app for each special event. Input masks allow information for a new event to be modified quickly and easily and to be made available to participants via the app.
The evaluation function on the web interface also ensures quick and cost-effective monitoring and analysis of events for both event organizers and decision-makers.
