Research and Innovation

Standing still is going backward, as they say. We at INOSIM believe that solid research is an important prerequisite for disruptive innovation that provides those key benefits to our customers that they don’t get anywhere else. Research has been part of the core identity of INOSIM for many years. As an innovative SME, we always have an eye on how we can get the most promising results transferred into industrial practice.

Skills, Software, and Promising Research Efforts

INOSIM is involved in collaborative research projects across a variety of technology areas where our simulation software can provide key benefits, ranging from optimal production scheduling and modular logistics over (early-stage) design of resource-efficient processes and bioprocess modeling to practical applications of artificial intelligence in the process industry. We are well-connected within the academic and industrial research and innovation landscape and are cooperating with leading academic institutions, innovative SMEs, and global industrial players, even if they sometimes lie a bit outside our typical comfort zone.

We are always interested in new opportunities to contribute our skills, software, and experience to promising research efforts. Our teams are eager to learn and expand their horizon from new research endeavors and interesting collaborators. If you are looking for an innovative SME as a partner for your research project, please contact us.

LEGOLAS: Flexible Configuration Of Modular Production And Logistics (2017-2020)

In LEGOLAS, INOSIM and its partners have developed a simulation-driven planning assistance system that allows the user to quickly design modular production and logistics systems and to assess them quantitatively using INOSIM digital twins. The packaged-goods library for INOSIM that we have developed in LEGOLAS is now applied widely within other projects with logistical elements, as it enables seamless integration of production and logistics modules within a single simulation tool.
