Executive Corporate CAS in Lean Innovation

The "Executive Corporate CAS in Lean Innovation" study programme was developed in a joint cooperation between the iimt, INNOArchitects and the Swiss Post, and is, in its current form, the only such programme on offer in Switzerland. The core of the practice-oriented CAS is the acquisition of practical experience through active collaboration in one or multiple Swiss Post projects, combined with attending university courses and workshops. Participants are profiting from a unique, shortened education focused on practical elements.

roll-e – Der Einkaufswagen der Zukunft

Christina Schlegel, aktuelle Teilnehmerin des ideas@iimt Programmes, hat die Vision das Einkaufen durch den roll-e einfacher zu gestalten. roll-e unterstützt den Einkäufer beim Lebensmittelkauf auf eine neue Art und Weise. Christina Schlegel trat im März 2018 dem ideas@iimt Programm bei mit dem Ziel, umfassende Kundeninformationen mittels eines Customer Insights Workshop zu generieren. Nachdem sie viele wertvolle Informationen über die Kundenbedürfnisse sammeln konnte, hat sich ideas@iimt dazu entschieden, für eine zukünftige Kooperation mit der Hochschule für Technik und Architektur in Freiburg in Kontakt zu treten. Das Resultat: zwanzig Ingenieure arbeiteten an der technischen Umsetzung von Christina’s roll-e.

Die technischen Spezifikationen von roll-e wurden in einem 3D-Modell erstellt welches zeigt, dass roll-e ein elektrisch angetriebener Einkaufswagen ist. Durch die speziellen Aufbewahrungsboxen ist der einfache und sichere Transport von Lebensmitteln jederzeit gewährleistet. Dieses 3D-Modell ist nun die Grundlage für die Realisierung eines Prototyps.

Sollten Sie an den ideas@iimt Ideen interessiert sein, oder selbst eine Geschäftsidee haben, zögern Sie nicht uns online zu besuchen unter ideasatiimt.ch oder mit uns in Kontakt zu treten.
