AI FOR GERMAN SMES
The market is changing:
Industrial value creation is becoming a service model
In the German industry, there is a fundamental change in how value is created; from products to services. There is a demand for innovative business models which require German SMEs to use and market their internal company-specific “service knowledge”…
To market “service knowledge” for industrial plants
The “service knowledge” required for industrial plants exceeds the knowledge of individual service technicians and also of companies. This, combined with the shortage of skilled workers, means that German small and medium-sized companies will face the enormous challenge of securing their leading edge in the Service sector in the coming years.
AN AI-BASED & CROSS-COMPANY SERVICE PLATFORMS FOR SMES
Service-Meister is to develop an AI-based, cross-plant, cross-department, and cross-company service platform for German SMEs.
TO SUPPORT STAFF
Less-qualified staff are to be enabled to offer complex services with the help of digital guides, such as AI-based ServiceBots and Smart Services.
TO ENABLE CROSS-COMPANY “SERVICE”
Digital service knowledge will enable cross-company scalability of service on a single platform.
TO STAY COMPETITIVE
IN SPITE OF THE SHORTAGE OF SKILLED WORKERS
A service ecosystem will evolve from the cross-company scaling which will combat the skills shortage in Germany and will keep German SMEs competitive in the long-term.
