EMO review 2017
More than 130,000 visitors attended the much anticipated EMO Hannover 2017 fair to discover the current design trends in the metalworking sector. One big topic which was buzzing around the fair was ‘Industry 4.0’. It was certainly an opportunity to measure just how far the metal working industry has come in the digitalization of the metal machine processes. We at Schindler were there to find out, as well as exploring the latest design and technology trends.
Understanding the challenges of Industry 4.0
Most companies talk about I 4.0 , but very few know what it really means.
The challenges of transitioning towards Industry 4.0 are extensive, yet quite simple. The needs and demands of 4.0 include: innovative strategies, processes, products, services and customer relationships. The factories themselves face the challenge of becoming smart factories which will deal with massive amounts of digital info being processed, IoT, self-optimization, and self-configuration with machines working with both machines and humans. 4.0 will also have new implications for staff, stakeholders and users. While Industry 4.0 offers an exciting prospect for manufacturing techniques.
Innovation Day 2016
Creatives at work—and why sometimes things blow up…
At Schindler we get together every day, which only makes sense since together we work on solutions that make the world smarter for our partners and their clients. But once a year, we take the time to fine-tune our own ability to innovate. As a team, as the Schindler family, as thought leaders, and as a creative team.
Why this is our main interest for us at Schindler…
“WHY?” sounds like a trivial question to you? Not quite. At Schindler, this is the first question we think about when we begin new projects with our partners. Why is this so? Because it can be essential for their business’s success.
10 years of “Design. Innovation. Together.”
Schindler–past, present and future
10 years is a long time, but for us, it passed by in a breeze. Today, we specialize in innovation strategies for sophisticated products and complex systems. Wow. That sounds big, sounds like responsibility, and sounds like a lot of work. That is all true. But do you know something? It also sounds like a whole lot of fun, passion and blood.
Designing for a complex environment
Interaction design at the foundation of intuitive creation
Manufacturing is undergoing an immense transition. The requirements are increasingly complex and user expectations are rising. This is an important topic for us specialists in the area of innovation strategies and design for sophisticated products. An interview with Florian, our design lead team H.
About the design of invisible services, about services.
Service design as the beginning of every product development? At Schindler, that’s how we work.
What do users really want? What feels good to them and what their real, actual needs? Where do they want to go in the future? It is time to shine a new light on services. Service design as an instrument for focusing on people? For service designer at Schindler, it is more than that. For their partners, they create services that are visible (though sometimes invisible to the user) and tangible. That’s why they like to think of themselves as conductors and consider service design far more than just a design discipline.
