“The whole is more than the sum of its parts.” – Aristoteles

Even Aristotle, the first great systematist among philosophers, understood that a system not only consists of individual subsystems, but also of the respective network – and thus generates complexity.

The procedures of systems engineering serve the time- and cost-oriented as well as market-oriented development of complex technical systems including the necessary roles and disciplines. Thus, the approach is interdisciplinary and covers a broad spectrum of sub-areas.

Today more than ever, companies are forced to deliver their products better, faster and more cost-effectively. In addition, products are becoming increasingly complex due to the increase in interdisciplinary challenges.

High-quality development processes can help organizations meet today’s challenges and compete in the marketplace. The methods of CoE Systems Engineering are aimed at improving the processes of an organization.

Requirements Management (RM or REQM) as the first step of system development is decisive for the success or failure of a project.

Requirements management covers all aspects of working with requirements. It includes requirements engineering (RE) as well as measures for the control, monitoring and administration of requirements. The requirements collection is a step-by-step process. In this process, the individual process steps – collecting & analysing, structuring & refining, harmonising, checking and evaluating requirements – can also be repeated in several iteration stages.

Quality creates trust. This is particularly true if the quality of products is maintained at a constant level or even continuously improved over a longer period of time. This is because this is the only way for customers to make predictions about the quality of products to be purchased in the future. Through a continuous level of quality, companies convey reliability and thus create trusting business relationships.

Holistic variant management starts with customer management and offers considerable savings potential in development and production.

A defined product range considerably simplifies the selection of products for purchasing and secures competitive advantages. Through equal parts policy and equal development artefacts, there is considerable potential for savings.

In order to fully exploit all savings potentials, variant management must be strategically implemented in organizations.

INVENSITY empowers organizations through individual consulting concepts to real variant control.

“Project Management – Plan your work, work your plan.” – Unknown author

Projects bring together different resources, technology and competencies once for a limited period of time in order to create one or more products that are recorded and validated in the business case on the basis of corporate strategies and ideas. The success of projects is therefore decisive for the added value of a company.

Various factors are necessary for project success. In addition to clear processes, structures and methods, an effective use of IT-supported tools from a certain project size makes sense. The ultimate success, however, depends largely on the people and organizations involved in the project. This can also extend beyond the company’s own borders, e.g. to suppliers.

The INVENSITY Center of Excellence Project Management offers its customers a comprehensive range of processes, methods and tools, which can be adapted according to requirements, situation and industry. In order to meet the high requirements of its customers, the consultants of CoE PM certify themselves according to the international project management standard PRINCE2:2009. Furthermore, procedures according to PMI and GPM are also common and find their application.

A structured and professional project management is indispensable nowadays. The complexity and thus the planning and controlling effort is continuously increasing.

For years agile development methods have been gaining increasing acceptance in software development. There, the advantages of more agile than traditional development methods are known for their flexibility in the project and the provision of high-quality products.

However, a simple transfer of this success story to the larger overall development context with a hardware/mechanics context and integration of production is not possible 1:1.

Resource planning should be carried out quickly, uniformly and comprehensibly. Development departments responsible for multiple products often face the challenge of organizing efficient resource management. Responsibility for many products results in a large number of parallel projects. In such organizations, matrix structures consisting of lines and project responsibilities are usually to be found, in which a dynamic resource adjustment represents a challenge due to the distributed responsibilities and competencies. Especially in growing business areas, there is a lack of a transparent database for evaluating resource utilization and planning.

Supplier relationships have developed into partnership relationships as a result of the intensified competition from Top Down.

New approaches to supplier management can be traced back to two developments within the companies: On the one hand, the complexity of systems and projects to be developed has increased in recent years. On the other hand, the trend among companies to concentrate on their core competencies is encouraging them to outsource production steps. Supplier management is therefore playing an increasingly important role.

“Don’t look for mistakes, look for solutions.” – Henry Ford

Can you imagine driving a car without knowing that the brakes are designed to the highest safety standards? How can a medical device manufacturer ensure that its products do not harm patients at any time? How can new systems be safely integrated into an aircraft without negatively affecting the old systems?

Today, we are surrounded by complex technologies in almost every area of our lives and human lives often depend on them.

Many of the modern technologies have been developed to make our lives easier and more enjoyable, often even to secure or save our lives. With increasing demands on such systems, the complexity also increases with each further development step, which makes higher expenditures in ensuring functionality unavoidable. This can be remedied by education, training and the use of efficient and standardised safety management methods.

COE Safety Management has gained extensive experience in various areas of safety management and is continuously expanding this experience.

Our Functional Safety Management experts support their customers in the introduction and implementation of functional safety projects. This includes above all the general design and establishment of safety management projects with regard to the methods and processes to be applied as well as the planning and preparation of assessments and audits.

Inadequate market research can slow down innovation if technology-driven innovations are assigned to the wrong customers or application areas.

The Market Research & Development working group monitors the safety market and identifies new trends, methods and standards at an early stage. A systematic exploration of the market reveals innovations worthy of development. These new developments are assigned to the appropriate standards, industries and customers as well as application areas, taking into account synergies and premises.

While quality management improves and optimizes the quality of a product, reliability management (RM) is responsible for maintaining this quality over as long a period as possible. It ensures that components, devices and systems function without failure over the entire life cycle, taking into account the specified maintenance intervals. The life cycle ranges from conception to disposal. The Reliability Management & Engineering (RM&E) working group supports projects with the help of experience-based methods and tools to identify potential errors or hazards at an early stage of the lifecycle.

Innovations drive growth

The unique potential of innovations is undisputed. Innovations should not only serve to improve the range of services on offer – they must also increase yields in the long term, i.e. be profitable. Thus, innovation management must also aim at exploitable results. To achieve this, INVENSITY has developed a specialized approach that enables systematic and efficient action in the field of innovation.

Every innovation can only be as good as the idea on which it is based. Therefore it is more important to create high-quality ideas than just a lot of ideas. Targeted and systematic idea generation techniques in particular offer great potential here. They limit the huge field of possibilities to such an extent that the limited resources are directed to the promising directions. Typical blockades of thinking and well-trodden paths are thus avoided. The positive side effect: Much fewer resources are needed for idea generation and evaluation, since the time-consuming filtering of really good ideas from a mountain of waste ideas is no longer necessary.

RIMINO – Minimum Risk Innovation Management is a method developed by INVENSITY to systematically reduce innovation risks.

While systematic risk management has long been standard in other areas, there has been no such thing as innovation to date. This is all the more astonishing since about 2/3 of all innovation projects fail. Considering that on average about 50% of the R&D budget is invested in innovations, almost 1/3 of all R&D expenditure is lost. If the success rate of innovations is only slightly increased, this results in a large financial potential.

INVENSITY offers a variety of innovation services along the entire innovation process.

Nowadays, innovations and functional innovations in the technical field are often achieved by pure software solutions.

CoE Software Engineering provides methods and tools for the successful implementation of software development projects. With methodological competence, a well-trained handling of architectural and design patterns, corresponding tools and expertise in various programming languages, it is also possible to ensure the success of a project for complex tasks.

INVENSITY can adapt the software development process to the project circumstances thanks to a wide range of expertise. Thus, developments according to standards such as V-Modell XT or AUTOSAR, but also agile methods such as Extreme Programming or SCRUM are feasible.

The expertise of the employees in the planning, implementation, testing and maintenance of software flows into the CoE and is constantly expanded through training and internal objectives.

All relevant development steps of software engineering are considered thematically:

  • requirements
  • design
  • architecture
  • testing
  • maintenance

In addition, support processes such as configuration management are also considered. But also software quality and metrics are important topics of software engineering.

AUTOSAR is a layer model that essentially divides the software into application software, runtime environment and basic software. A virtual function bus system (VFB) is located between the ECU-specific basic software and the ECU-independent application software. This connects all software components, including those that are in different ECUs. This allows them to be moved between different ECUs without having to make changes to the software components themselves. This can be useful for optimizing computing power, memory requirements or communication load.


INV_Productpager_CoE SW_AUTOSAR DE.pdf (107,9 KiB)

Software systems in the automotive industry are becoming ever more complex and at the same time system life cycles are becoming ever shorter. Due to the increasing pressure on the automotive market, OEMs as well as suppliers are forced to introduce products to the market faster. A trend is derived from this, which points away from the classic V-model towards agile software development.


INV_Productpager_CoE SW_Involution DE.pdf (147,3 KiB)

The long-standing practice of software development means that source codes often have “grown historically”. In addition to structural weaknesses, this is particularly evident in the lack of complete documentation of architecture and design. Such code is also called legacy code.

Migration to new technologies (e.g. AUTOSAR) or requirements from standards (such as ISO 26262) lead to architecture documents being required for this legacy code.

CoE Software Engineering has recognized this need and derived the method “Architecture from Legacy Code” (ArLeCo) from it.

The Continuous Integration (CI) approach is used to develop complex software in project teams of various sizes in a timely and cost-effective manner. In addition, the Continuous Integration process provides fast and automated feedback on the correctness of an application for each change to software.

INVENSITY uses the Staged Continuous Integration (StaCI) model to evaluate the maturity level of a Continuous Integration (CI) implementation in companies and to plan the introduction and improvement of CI. StaCI covers both tooling and automation aspects as well as adaptations of the organization and culture in teams.

The result is lower release risk, higher efficiency and reliability, and ultimately improved quality of delivered software and systems.

The development of systems is becoming increasingly complex. In order to cope with complexity, more and more engineering processes and tools are being used, which are quickly expanding into a heterogeneous landscape. This results in a confusing amount of tools, processes and interfaces through which data is exchanged. The engineering tools and the associated IT will increasingly merge in the future to be able to develop more efficiently.

The INVENSITY Center of Excellence (CoE) Data Systems offers standard solutions to enable data exchange from one tool to another. The CoE gathers all necessary competences to develop tools and applications in different technologies (mobile apps, office macros, SharePoints, web applications and desktop applications) and programming languages.

Development of web-based applications for process support and active knowledge management. Among other things, we provide a complete tool suite for knowledge management in order to distribute the knowledge of your company to all employees.

Many companies are turning to SharePoint more and more. INVENSITY is able to bring the worlds of IT and engineering together and creates SharePoint applications for you or designs your SharePoint according to your wishes.

Due to the large number of successfully completed projects in different industries, INVENSITY has developed a broad expertise in the field of engineering tools, which enables INVENSITY to optimally advise its customers. The aim of the consulting is to design and implement an ideal toolsetup from the heterogeneous landscape.

One basis of the consulting approach is the “Tool Competencies Map”. This allows standard solutions to be recorded and disseminated effectively and simply. This enables INVENSITY to quickly show its customers a way out of the heterogeneous tool landscape.

The INVENSITY Center of Excellence Cybersecurity and Data Privacy is the expert for all questions concerning IT security of embedded systems. Sustainability and traceability are at the centre of our activities. For us, the systematic analysis of existing systems and the design of security concepts are the starting point for a secure system. The systematic identification and assessment of risks serves as a basis for defining suitable measures. When implementing secure systems, we rely on the methods of software and systems engineering, as well as the methods of cybersecurity, such as secure coding or threat modeling.

Using these methods, we pursue the generally accepted goals of Cybersecurity: Authentication, Authorization, Availability, Confidentiality and Integrity. In addition, we include the “Privacy” objective. Most cyber-physical systems available on the market today collect or process personal data in one way or another. From our point of view it is therefore essential to include a strategy for their use and protection already during the concept phase of a product as well as during its development.

Embedded systems are exposed to the same cyber security threats as other IT systems. This simple truth has long been underestimated. In the meantime, many industries have realized that the use of known and widespread technologies facilitates attacks. Defining and implementing individual obvious measures leads to a perceived improvement, but this is deceptive. Only a systematic approach can lead to sufficient security of the systems.

The INVENSITY Cybersecurity Development Process provides a standardized and requirements-based solution to systematically identify risks and define appropriate measures. Based on the identification of the assets to be protected, the relevant threats and vulnerabilities are investigated. On this basis, incident scenarios are described and evaluated with regard to their probability and their effects. The resulting risks form the basis for defining measures to reduce the calculated risk value. Comprehensive documentation and the safeguarding of determined knowledge for reuse are essential characteristics of the software-supported implementation of this process.

The INVENSITY Security Assessment Tool (ISAT) is the result of extensive experience in performing security assessments. It supports the workflow of the INVENSITY Cybersecurity Development Process and thus facilitates compliance with the process. Simple reuse, clean documentation and a systematic approach that conforms to standards were the core requirements for the development of this software. ISAT serves both us and our customers for the implementation of product-related security assessments. Individual adaptability and expandability are further strengths of the software.


INV_Productpager_CoE CS_ISAT_DE.pdf (314,5 KiB)

Hackers are trying to identify every possible attack vector. There are no limits to what they can do. Even systems that use a cryptographically secure method are not necessarily free of side channel attacks. In addition to vulnerable hardware, security holes due to careless implementations are very common. Programs that are apparently uninteresting to an attacker can also offer a way to infiltrate a system if they have elevated privileges and a network interface, for example. Therefore, it is important to include the aspect of security in the programming, to adhere to certain rules and to check the program for errors like buffer overflows.

A threat model is a structured representation of all information of a system that is related to security. Through the process of Threat Modelling, this information is identified, organized and analyzed. The goal is to uncover all threats and vulnerabilities of a system. In addition, lists of prioritized improvements in security, requirements, design and/or implementation are created. Countermeasures are planned and implemented according to the effects of a threat. The threat model should accompany a product through its entire lifecycle and be improved and specified in the individual phases of the cycle.

A penetration test serves to identify all possible threats to a system. First of all, all important resources that could become the target of an attack and possible side effects of an attack are recorded. Once the defence objectives have been established, it will be determined how an attacker can gain access to the resources to be protected and/or control over the system and how an attacker can cause unwanted behaviour of the system. For this purpose, the system is analyzed and possible threats are assessed and categorized. Tests are carried out on the basis of the threats found. In these tests, it is important to look at different attack models in order not only to find out what an attacker can do, but also to determine how likely an attack is. In the course of these tests, new threats that were not previously considered can also be identified. Once this data has been evaluated, protective measures can be planned and implemented.

Automotive systems are increasingly being networked with each other and with the environment. This makes it necessary to deal systematically with the entire issue of security, because the security of software has two dimensions. Functional Safety is about protecting the environment from the vehicle. Cybersecurity, on the other hand, focuses on protecting the vehicle from the environment. In the development of modern vehicles and their software, the consideration of functional safety has long been an important part of development. At the latest since the entry into force of ISO 26262 (“Road vehicles – Functional safety”) in 2011, the topic has received increased attention. The topic of cyber security, on the other hand, has so far been neglected in the automotive industry, and a uniform approach, such as that described by SAE’s J3061, is only just beginning to emerge. Based on our many years of experience in implementing ISO 26262 and our sound cyber security know-how, we supported our customers in introducing and implementing this new standard.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which is mandatory from May 25, 2018 for anyone collecting or processing personal data within the European Union (EU), tightens data protection requirements and imposes heavy penalties in the event of non-compliance. The topic of data protection for cyber-physical systems and the resulting requirements for development and operation are by no means new. Numerous regional laws and regulations, which pursue the same goals, had already long before introduction of the GDPR validity.

Based on our extensive and cross-industry experience, we have developed a clearly structured approach, based on established and proven process models, to help our customers integrate the issue of data protection into their development processes and products and thus ensure compliance with applicable data protection regulations. This approach starts with a clear definition of the scope of the collection and processing of personal data and the relevant functions and interfaces. Based on this, risks related to the loss or compromise of personal data will be analysed and a strategy developed to prevent data breaches and to satisfy documentation requirements. Concrete technical and procedural solutions are then derived from this strategy and verification and validation criteria are defined for these.

The entire process of gaining scientific knowledge is covered by the Center of Excellence Analytics & Sensorics. It is divided into four subject areas namely: Measurement & Sensor Technology, Predictive Maintenance, Modeling & Simulation and Statistics & Data Analysis. It can therefore be placed chronologically between basic research and prototype development.

Our in-depth knowledge of measurement technology and data analysis enables us to provide efficient and precise solutions to challenges in the fields of statistics, sensor technology and physical modeling. Our multidisciplinary approach allows us to think outside the box and generate real added value.

The working group deals with the mathematical-physical simulation of models. The focus is on the scientific aspect, i.e. the investigation of mathematical models which include among others: partial differential equations and ordinary differential equations.

In cooperation with the customer we model physical systems and support our customers in better understanding them. Modeling a system can also help to reduce prototype costs, identify design potentials and support troubleshooting.

The Metrology and Sensor Technology Team deals with the conception of sensor systems and measuring methods. Physical knowledge serves as a way to solve the challenges of our customers to the physical properties and to convert them into relevant digital data.

The group develops innovative solutions for manufacturing optimization (industry 4.0), smart technologies such as smart keys or smart cities, and data connectivity to achieve a networked future. We support our customers in digitizing their sensor systems and identifying possible sources of error in the measurement system.

The aim of the Working Group Statistics and Data Analysis is to acquire knowledge and expertise on the topics of statistics, algorithms and data analysis. Furthermore, best practices for data visualization are to be developed.

Internally, we work as a think tank for statistics and data analysis. We enable our clients to better understand themselves by analyzing their data and extracting hidden information. In-depth parameter analysis enables us to identify relationships that were previously unknown to the client.

The Working Group Predictive Maintenance works on condition monitoring of machines in production and thereon based predicting possible failures ahead of time. The aim is to increase reliability, improve maintenance planning and save costs. In addition, production can be better controlled by transparent condition monitoring.

The main tasks include data collection and pre-processing, statistics, machine learning and modelling in order to find and validate application cases. However, the implementation of the found use cases into a productive system is also a related and possible task.

As one of the leading and independent technology consultancies, INVENSITY advises both buyers and sellers on domestic and cross-border Mergers & Acquisitions activities of technology-oriented companies.

The successful INVENSITY approach here is that consulting for the commercial and technical issues of a transaction can only lead to added value if the business model and the processes as well as the influence of future changes in the industry are fully understood by the consultants.

INVENSITY has the following expertise in M&A:

  • Excellent market knowledge in technology-driven industries (automotive, mechanical and plant engineering, energy, medical technology, …)
  • Strong network in these industries to gain industry insider knowledge
  • The influence of megatrends (digitalisation, autonomous driving, …) on current business models is continuously monitored.
  • Expert knowledge in the field of development and production technologies allow us to benchmark with other technology companies.
  • Independent advice without conflicts of interest

On this basis and our broad network of experts, INVENSITY can offer a wide range of advisory services along a transaction process. The offer starts for the buyer and seller side in the preparation of the transaction, continues with the commercial / technical due diligence and leads to the implementation of the strategy after the transaction.

INVENSITY Consulting offer for the acquisition of companies (buyer side):

  • Search and identification of suitable target companies
  • Commercial Quick Check
  • Commercial / Technical Due Diligence
  • Creation of a 100-day plan
  • Strategy after Transaction / Post-Merger Integration (PMI)

INVENSITY consulting offer for the sale of a company (seller side)

  • Setting up the contents of a data room and creating company presentations
    Create business plans including growth options to optimize the purchase price

Support of the due diligence process on the seller side through preparation and quality assurance during the handover of requested documents to the buyer side.

The acquisition and sale of a company is a very complex process. It must be planned and prepared very precisely by competent partners who fully understand the business model, technology and market trends. Both the buyer and seller sides benefit from such careful preparation of the transaction process. INVENSITY offers this support as a competent partner for technology-oriented corporate transactions.

For the buyer, INVENSITY can quickly identify deal breakers and significant risks before granting exclusivity. Our particular expertise lies in technology and innovation risks.

INVENSITY can also assist in identifying target companies when considering M&A as a complement to the company’s growth strategy. INVENSITY sifts through the market in search of suitable targets that can expand the product portfolio or technical capabilities. First contacts to the high-priority target companies can be established through the proven INVENSITY network in the technology sector.

For the seller, the good preparation of the sales activities leads to a higher company sales price. First, the vendor can focus on negotiating and is not under pressure to create sensitive documents during the “hot” acquisition phase. Secondly, a good chain of arguments can be built up as to how future cash flow planning and sales pipeline can be filled with realistic growth options.

In addition, INVENSITY creates and examines the documents for the data room together with the seller. The focus is on the consistency of the various data sources and a logical and well thought-out strategic outlook. In addition, INVENSITY searches the market for opportunities to expand the product portfolio. This also automatically identifies the technological capabilities required for the products of the future.

Avoid the ‘blind spot’ of classic due diligence through technical and innovation-oriented due diligence services.

Classical due diligence has a blind spot: it refers almost exclusively to business figures and also only to the past to the present. It ignores the true capabilities of a company and future potential. It can therefore be doubted whether the actual objective of a due diligence – to determine a realistic purchase price – is achieved with a backward-looking and static approach.

INVENSITY helps to see a company with two eyes open. As technology and innovation consultants, we work in the development departments of the world’s leading technology companies. We understand the technology behind the products. We develop them with you. This is why we also know how products are successfully developed and what skills are required to do so. We also have a good insight into the technological markets and future products. In a nutshell: INVENSITY has a deep understanding of how companies work and develop successfully.

We transfer this knowledge to due diligence to provide a unique service to both investors and sellers.

Investors receive a realistic and holistic picture of a company. We can easily see whether company figures have been “optimized” for sales. But in reality, the company is a shell of products based on outdated technology. The investments saved are reflected in the figures. But the ability to develop new products has been lost. Based on the real capabilities, we analyze for investors whether there is innovation and expansion potential in a company. This helps to create a realistic growth forecast, which is often part of the purchase price negotiations.

From this information we create a ‘bankable’ report. From our experience, banks appreciate this detailed picture of a company as it helps them to calculate their own risks. This is reflected in good conditions for leveraged purchases.

Sellers benefit from our services by helping to present information as well as future opportunities attractively in order to achieve a good selling price. INVENSITY supports the technological strengths and capabilities to market. We support you in drawing up a realistic and credible growth plan. This may also include new products and innovation opportunities based on future trends. In addition, we can make your company fit – as preparation for a sale.

The implementation of the results of the due diligence is a prerequisite for a transaction to pay off. This includes measures to minimise risk from the Red Flag Report as well as the implementation of positive potentials in a roadmap or a 100-day plan.

INVENSITY begins the activities after the transaction with a future-oriented mission statement and strategy. A roadmap for sales and technology is derived from this. In the next step, the various activities will be combined on the basis of our industry expertise to form a growth strategy for the company.

INVENSITY is also able to set up a small and flexible Integration Management Office (IMO). A joint program management team consisting of consultants from INVENSITY and employees from the acquired or merged companies works in this team. They support the planning and implementation of the defined activities.

The business ideals of INVENSITY form the framework for business relations with our clients, which are characterized by trust and respect. We also live by our convictions within the company, which serves to produce a holistic corporate culture.

We define strategies and aims in accordance with our vision and mission; our actions are based on corporate values

– The mission and vision reflect the aim of our actions. Our strategies and, ultimately, our aims, are derived from them. The overriding aims are broken down further and represent the objectives of each individual member of staff during half-yearly appraisals. In this way, each INVENSITY employee has the opportunity to make his or her own contribution to the overall company objective.

– The values ultimately form the basis of our actions. They shape how we treat each other and shape our conduct towards clients, suppliers and the general public.

Sincerity means always saying what you mean, and meaning what you say, all the while practicing the culture of feedback, listening to others in an open way without preconceptions.

Respect means showing everyone by my actions that I appreciate their worth, regardless of their career status, their experience or performance and ensuring that my actions are always informed by the principles of care, being interested and wanting to be involved.

Trust means that I express my confidence in INVENSITY employees and colleagues when dealing with customers and that I gain credibility through my own actions which are based on integrity and honest intentions. For us, trust is the basis of all cooperation. It grows with time and with shared experience.

Fairness means treating INVENSITY employees and clients in a fair, decent and honest manner while taking into consideration their individual abilities and situation, as well as observing the rules that have been put in place.

Responsibility means standing by the consequences of your own actions at INVENSITY and standing by clients, and actively doing all you can to ensure that tasks that fall under your area of responsibility are fulfilled completely.

Commitment means taking on tasks and responsibilities with energy and enthusiasm as well as being actively involved in achieving both your own objectives and those of INVENSITY.

Our mission is geared towards our external stakeholders with an emphasis on added value, and is also aimed at internal stakeholders, referring here to freedom for growth.

External mission:

– We are valued by our clients as a top-class consultancy and are held in the highest regard.

Internal mission:

– As an employer extraordinaire, we offer our excellent employees a diverse range of opportunities to contribute to achieving excellent results in high-performing teams.

“One never notices what has been done; one can only see what remains to be done.” – Marie Curie

INVENSITY shares its wealth of expertise in high-end technology gained over many years with its customers in a solution-orientated and flexible way. INVENSITY’s employees deliberately make use of the bundled knowledge of a sector or a technology and also check  applicability of this knowledge in other industries. Thus added value can be created beyond the core industries of INVENSITY.


The automobile industry is one of INVENSITY’s core industries – here INVENSITY works closely with OEMs and their suppliers. The commercial vehicle industry is also part of this client segment. 
The requirements of these three client segments can differ significantly.

Nonetheless, thanks to its experience in all three client segments, INVENSITY is able to offer its clients a wide range of solutions, both with regard to development management and project management. These include, for instance, taking over development tasks in the mechatronics field, project management/partial project management in the development and the optimization of R&D processes in accordance with the current standards in the automobile industry (e.g. IEC 61508 and SPICE).

Rail Industry

With annual growth of 3% the rail industry is a core area within the manufacturing industry in the high-tech sector, and sees itself confronted by changing framework conditions and increasing competitive pressures based on an internationalization of production, the expansion of the EU and a liberalization of markets. As the transport sector with the fastest-growing transport performance and the best environmental balance, the rail industry is an industry with a promising future and an excellent growth prospect and is therefore an area INVENSITY is paying particular attention to.

With far-reaching experience, INVENSITY offers assistance in the 3 core areas
1.    locomotives and rail vehicles
2.    infrastructure
3.    signaling equipment and telecommunications

and in large-scale projects of operating companies, making best use of our expertise in project management/partial project management, safety management in accordance with the required standards and in the optimization of research and development processes.

The aerospace industry has become one of the catalysts of innovation in Germany. With continuous growth and industry turnover of around €20 billion, the industry has become an important economic factor.

The high level of innovation in the sector makes it an attractive client segment for INVENSITY. The structure of INVENSITY corresponds to the high client requirements that rely on technical know-how, experience and communication skills. The cross-sector approach, which is based on transferring best practice from other industries, proves to be rather interesting here as well.

INVENSITY’s experience enables it to offer customized solutions, both in development and project management. These include, for instance, taking over development tasks, investigations into material properties, project management/partial project management in development and the optimization of maintenance processes.

The defense field is characterized by increasing innovation pressures and internationalization. In particular mobility and the development of mechatronic systems are at the very fore of investment.

The technical challenges are similar to those faced by the other industries within the INVENSITY client circle, with maintenance and the need for safety naturally being of greater significance in the defense industry. With INVENSITY’s experience in this industry it can  provide highly bespoke solutions for this industry in particular.

INVENSITY managed to attract much attention due to its ability to develop in accordance with the V-Model XT conforming to IEC 61508 and AQAP 2210 while taking into account MIL-STD 882. As a result, companies in the field of defense regularly make use of our process consulting and book training courses, and entrust us with challenging operational implementation projects.


Overall, the global markets for energy technology have good prospects for growth. In view of the rising crude oil prices, especially the demand for renewable energy is increasing significantly and, according to estimates, will reach approx. 30 percent p.a. for solar energy plants and around 15 percent p.a. for wind power plants.

German companies are proving to be particularly innovative in the field of fuel cells, where the number of registered patents is showing a double digit growth rate. Thanks to its cross-sector experience, INVENSITY offers customized solutions in this industry in the areas of development, optimization of processes and project management.

Plant Construction

A typical feature of industrial plant construction is, that the plants are specific to the individual client. In general, they are individual constructions or small batch types, which are associated with very high investment costs. Plants of this kind can be found in process engineering, power engineering, supply engineering, production engineering, machine construction and electrotechnology.

The many competitors against whom companies must compete with their core competences are not the only challenge this industry is facing. The tremendously high pressure of keeping to budgets and deadlines, also requires matured management processes.

Our extensive expertise in project management means INVENSITY can assist plant manufacturers and plant operators in all project processes, from defining the requirements to initial start-up and process optimization for the plant.

Germany is one of the world’s leaders for medical technology, with two out of the ten largest companies globally being German companies. Medical technology is characterized by an increasing interconnectedness of a wide range of systems and by great diversity. German companies are in addition increasingly putting their efforts in developing technologically challenging components and are investing substantially in R&D.

Based on INVENSITY’s experience across all sectors, we are ideally positioned to offer tailored solutions in this industry, especially in the areas of embedded software, supplier management and software development/testing.

Light is a tool with unparalleled properties. Precision, speed, and high energy and information densities make the control of light a key technology.

Optical technologies as a technological area, is a sector of indispensible importance for an innovation consulting company. It comprises nine areas, which are found in everyday and high-tech applications in the photonics industry, and which also form key technologies in other industries:

* Optical equipment and components
* Energy management 
* Medical technology and life sciences
* Flat-panel displays
* Lighting engineering 
* Image processing, measuring equipment and analytics
* Information technology, office automation and consumer electronics
* Communications technology
* Industrial production 

Telecommunications is an important industry in Germany. On one hand the sector has great economic significance, as its innovations lead to a productivity increase in industry, and on the other hand because it represents a catalyst for innovation due to its short development cycles.

Challenges are in particular caused on the back of an ever-increasing interlinking of different technologies and as a result of constant changes in technology. Thanks to its cross-sector experience, INVENSITY offers bespoke solutions in this industry, particularly in the areas of IT development, change management and in the optimization of processes.

“Always act in such a way that further possibilities arise.” – Heinz von Förster

INVENSITY supports a variety of social responsibility projects.

Amongst others we organize every year our “Kindergarten Contest”. Kindergarten and nursery schools around our office locations (Hamburg, Düsseldorf, Wiesbaden, Stuttgart, München, Detroit) have the opportunity to win a prize money to realize their kids dreams.

With our own Children-Engineering-Academy we show children in a playful way the backgrounds of all-day technology.

Furthermore we are active with several local an regional social events.

Due to our engagement in social activities we were decorated with the “Golden Lily” in 2013 and 2015.

Do you have an special need or idea for a social project? Please contact us!

INVENSITYs goal with the Children Engineering Academy is to show even the small ones how all day technology is all about.

In a playful way the children learn, how the daily things work. Especially these kinds of technology, that are in use every day without thinking about it:

How das a GPS work? In which way is it connected with the magnetic field of our earth?

Why does the sound come out of an MP3 player? How does my ear hear the music?

The INVENSITY Kindergarten Contest 2019 has started! We would like to invite you to participate again this year.

The contest is aimed at kindergartens, day care centres and nurseries in and around our offices in Hamburg, Düsseldorf, Wiesbaden, Stuttgart and Munich. INVENSITY is a technology and innovation consultancy and sustainable social commitment is part of our self-image. We launched the contest nine years ago with the aim of promoting the commitment and innovative ideas of children’s institutions. With our growth, the scope of the contest has also grown. For example, we are currently awarding a prize money of 10,000 euros for all locations in total.

Do you have an idea for your institution that will help the children to develop or that you simply enjoy more? Then we look forward to receiving your application:

Please send us your concept by 21.06.2019 to the contact below. The documents should briefly describe on about one or two pages what makes up your kindergarten, what the idea is, how you imagine the implementation and how you plan to use the prize money if you win. There are no limits to your imagination! We evaluate all project proposals submitted on time according to the criteria of innovativeness & creativity, feasibility and sustainable benefit for all children in your institution. The institutions with the most exciting projects will then have the opportunity to present their ideas in more detail.

You are welcome to find out more about last year’s winners below.
