Global company focuses on industry user experience
Known for its paper machines, Voith is a 150-year-old family business that digitizes its processes at a rapid pace. The traditional manufacturer of paper machines, hydroelectric power plants and belt conveyors has implemented a Digital Solutions -unit, responsible for the renewal of the industrial product-related software. The heart of the global technology company remains in the city of Heidenheim, Germany.
Personalized views facilitate the use of data
Gofore has developed a platform for Voith, allowing users in different roles different views of data.
The factory management has different needs for information than the production shift manager or operator. Now, a user friendly interface filters and compiles data for each specific user group,
says Heikki Malmlund, Senior Service Architect at Gofore.

An agile project guarantees results
The extensive project is characterized by learning through co-developing and experimenting. The project involves Voith’s own designers and experts. Gofore service designers and developers have conducted user research and conceptualization. The jointly executed UX-design and software development will continue. The platform is gradually used in pilot mode and various applications will be added over time. The currently developed platform will eventually be applied also for other industrial products.
