As in previous years, students of the faculty of business informatics were again given the task of developing a concept together with the company Soloplan this year.
On 5 November 2018, Mr Christian Heidl (CDO at Soloplan) introduced the topic of this year’s project to the third semester business informatics students:
The task was to develop a concept for an app that allows the user to control the flow of goods within a cross dock (transshipment warehouse).
However, the focus was to be not only on the flow of goods itself, but also on how modern gesture control can simplify daily work.
That is why one of the main objectives was to integrate functions, such as voice control, a scan engine or a classic camera, into the app.
The students had time until 17 December 2018 to develop and elaborate various concepts in groups and to demonstrate them during a presentation of results.
The four groups formed based on the sectors “automotive”, “full load”, “food” and “tank”, had to convince the jury, which consisted of some of Soloplan’s heads of department as well as of Mr Prof. Dr. Stefan Wind, of their concepts.
After the jury had made its decision, the winning team was announced and rewarded in the Soloplan Chillout café, where coffee and pastries were served.
From the jury’s point of view, the “automotive” team developed the best concept this year. The winners may now look forward to attending an event in the BixBox Allgäu, which they can follow from the Soloplan box. Congratulations!
