Welcome to Fraunhofer ITWM!

We are one of the world's largest mathematical research institutes and our goal is to further develop mathematics as a key technology, give innovative impetus and implement it in practice together with industry partners. Methodologically, our research areas are based on modeling, simulation and optimization. Integral parts of our projects are consulting and implementation, support in the application of high-performance computer technology and providing tailor-made software solutions. We not only use simulation software, but also develop it ourselves, often in cooperation with leading software companies.
Nowadays, companies of all sizes use simulations on regular bases which gives them benefit in terms of product innovation and quality assurance. Our customers are mainly in the automotive, mechanical engineering, textile, computer industry and finance sectors.

ITWM Group Researches on Virtual Machine Vision

Online inspection systems have proven themselves in many production environments. But what happens when the components get more complicated? How can your testing be automated despite the increasing individualization of industrially produced products? Answers are provided by virtual image processing, which completely simulates and optimizes the inspection process.

Collaboration with SAP

»After almost 4 years of collaboration, we are convinced that partnering with the ITWM was the best thing SAP could do to streamline the development process of SAP S/4HANA for advanced variant configuration.«. We are very pleased with these words from the SAP blog.

Since 2015, we have been developing a new, state-of-the-art configuration engine for the SAP database S/4HANA together with experts from SAP. Our part in the project consisted primarily of developing algorithms for processing a wide variety of variant configurations.
