Darmstadt, 02. April 2020: The auditing and consulting firm PwC Deutschland has acquired a 12.5 percent stake in ADAMOS GmbH. With this acquisition, ADAMOS now has an eighth shareholder in addition to DMG MORI, Dürr, Software AG, ZEISS, ASM PT, ENGEL Austria and the KARL MAYER Group. In total, ADAMOS comprises of more than 30 partners pursuing a common goal: to establish an ecosystem in which integrated solutions for the mechanical and plant engineering sector and its clients can be designed, developed, sold and deployed.
The ADAMOS Hackathon 4.5 took place at ENGEL in Schwerberg, Austria, from 26-29 January 2020:
The 5th Hackathon started with an E-Kart teambuilding event on Sunday afternoon in Linz with over 60 participants in Austria. After a few fast laps on the kart track the participants got to know the 6 different challenges. In first talks they could already think about ideas for prototypes.
After the welcome by Dr. Engleder and Dr. Busse on Monday morning, the participants were pitching their ideas in front of the audience and were courting team members. After the teams had been found, 7 groups started directly with the elaboration of the idea, the identification of the persona, the conception and the allocation of responsibilities.
In addition to developers, also product managers, business development managers, marketing managers and sales managers play an important role in the hackathon. They help to identify the use case properly, elaborate the persona, develop the business model and also prepare the pitch presentation. On the other hand the backend/frontend developers and designers are coding the app and building the user interface.
The next hackathon will take place in summer 2020. Stay tuned!
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".
