Round four successfully mastered: from 21 - 24 July 2019, the "ADAMOS HACKATHON 4.4" took place at Software AG in Darmstadt.
Software specialists, designers and product managers of the ADAMOS partners faced the various challenges of digitization in the industry in interdisciplinary teams. How can companies support their customers with digital networking and intelligent apps? How can it be ensured that vertical applications are integrated into manufacturer-independent, digital solutions? Ultimately, the goal is always to increase customer benefit.
The teams had one goal: to develop the first functional prototypes from ideas.
Darmstadt, January 23, 2019 – at the beginning of 2019 ADAMOS steps forward with five new partners and a trend-setting product and service roadmap.
Networked machines and systems are the basic building blocks of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Added value for the industry, however, is created only by digital products and services, for example in predictive maintenance or data-based optimization of machine utilization. The growing ADAMOS Partner Network demonstrates both the interest in and the need for such digital solutions. Five companies have recently strengthened the alliance. These include well-known mechanical engineering firms such as Oerlikon Textile GmbH & Co. KG, Weber Maschinenbau GmbH, ILLIG Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG, and Mahr GmbH.
From August 26 - 29, 2018 the second ADAMOS HACKATHON 4.2 took place at Dürr AG in Bietigheim-Bissingen. More than 60 participants - including 50 "hackers" - met the challenges of the mechanical engineering and plant construction industry in seven interdisciplinary teams. The aim was to generate functioning digital prototypes or solutions for special applications in two and a half days.
Same as ADAMOS HACKATHON 4.1, the 3.5-day event started with a teambuilding activity. In mixed groups, the 50 participants, who had been foreign until then, had to prove themselves in a scavenger hunt through Ludwigsburg. So on Sunday evening it was easy to discuss and prepare the "pitches" for the upcoming hackathon competition in a relaxed atmosphere. The seven teams then had 2.5 days to prepare a presentable prototype from the idea.
The core idea of ADAMOS is to jointly develop digital business models that offer added value to all partners and especially their end customers. And this was also evaluated by the jury. On Wednesday, August 29, 2018, the jury awarded the team with the "1-click-order" app first place. The application convinced all partners and the jury with a ready-to-use and quickly integrable solution. 2nd place went to "Smart Data Gurad", 3rd place to the "FlexEdge" app. Other finalists included the members of the "zipee" team, which received the "Cross Collaboration Award".
GEMEINSAM - 7 interdisciplinary teams in competition
From 04 - 07 March the first "ADAMOS HACKATHON 4.1" took place in Pfronten at DMG MORI. A total of 50 participants - including 40 software specialists, designers and product managers from the seven ADAMOS partners - took part in seven interdisciplinary teams during the four days of different challenges of industrial digitisation in mechanical and plant engineering.
"Stronger Together" at the ADAMOS HACKATHON 4.1
Teambuilding was on the agenda at the beginning of the ADAMOS HACKATHON. A winter ADAMOS Olympiad followed by a presentation of the three challenges at the Get Together on Sunday afternoon formed the framework for getting to know each other and discussing in a relaxed atmosphere how to solve tasks relating to data visualization, compatibility between machines and innovative business models together. In the days that followed, the task was to develop functional and testable prototypes. The participants were provided with: the factory, lots of sample data, interfaces and machine simulations from the partner companies. In addition, the respective experts as well as trainers for design thinking and creativity techniques. To compensate, of course, what the Allgäu has to offer was used: Mountains, nature, sport, evenings to remember and a good measure in between.
