Customers & Industries
Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental Software Engineering IESE
The goal of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft is to introduce research results into industrial usage in a sustainable manner. The six business areas of Fraunhofer IESE build the bridge from scientific research to industry and application domains. For specific information concerning the business areas please address the relating contact person.
Automation and Plant Engineering
If machines, plants, and automation technology are to continue to fulfill the requirements of the quality seal “made in Germany“, the traditionally high quality standards must also be applied to the ever increasing amount of software found in this domain. Fraunhofer IESE supports its customers in developing software in a modern and engineering-style manner. This starts with the design of development processes and solid requirements management, includes well-founded safety concepts and analyses, and extends all the way to the automatic testing of software.
Automotive and Transportation Systems
Fraunhofer IESE supports its customers from the domains vehicle technology, rail, and aerospace in a comprehensive way with respect to their software development activities. This encompasses solutions and services for example in the following areas:
- Safe and reliable system architectures
- Variant Management
- Safety Engineering Methods
- Model based Testing
- Process Compliance and ImprovementReferenzkunden

Fraunhofer IESE assists partners from all levels of government and public institutions on their way to becoming a high-performance service provider for business and citizens, in short, to become a ‘Smart Government’.
Smart governments relentlessly focus on providing sustainable public value. This especially applies to different processes, timeframes, and people in the respective IT organizations. The challenges IT faces today are many:
- Is the chosen IT strategy future-proof? Does it support the right blend of standardization and choice, taking into account changes in technologies, vendors, user attitudes, and demographics?
- Are IT organizations maintaining the right portfolio of applications, planning to discontinue those for which they are unable to prove any future value?
- Are IT organizations using enterprise architecture to control what they have or to overcome the boundaries between silos, and implement innovative and sustainable solutions?

There is hardly any other area in our daily lives where computer technology is so close to humans; which is why mistakes can have very serious effects. Absolute reliability and safety of the systems and the (embedded) software are required.
To help you supply your customers with the best possible products, we support you by offering, for example:
- Requirements elicitation
- Risk management
- Software safety analyses
- Adapted quality management approaches
Our health care system is currently undergoing dramatic changes. The demographic development, the scarcity of public funding concomitant with the increasing demand for health services, a rapidly developing information and communication technology, and last but not least, regulatory requirements stipulated by law create challenges for the system on various levels.
The use of information technology in the health care sector aims at digitally linking all stakeholders and processes in health care. This includes both software-based applications and the process workflows supported by them. Modern information systems effectively support automated data elicitation and communication processes and thus make a major contribution to improving quality and increasing efficiency in health care. We offer you leading-edge research and development services in the area of information systems for
- User-oriented software systems
- Controllable complexity and variants
- Provable safety and quality requirements
