Integrated business applications connect and correlate data from different areas with each other and thus enable real-time transparency of all supply chain processes. They accelerate decision-making processes and ensure the agility necessary for competitiveness and growth by fulfilling a critical prerequisite for smooth operations and order processing. Within complex, networked IT systems, integrated business applications provide optimum support for current and future business processes, enable efficient control of the entire supply chain and thus increase the value added of manufacturing companies.

As part of the Smart Logistics Cluster on the RWTH Aachen campus, we consider integrated business applications in the context of all application-related success dimensions for the networked company of the future.
The interdisciplinary exchange with software and technology providers, users and scientists also enables us to work closely with the pulse of the times and to transfer the latest findings securely into practice. We use the unique experimental environment of the Smart Logistics Cluster with Smart Application Innovation Labs and the Industrie-4. Reference Factory for the development and testing of prototypes – also for individual requirements. In this way we put future integrated business applications on a foundation that is viable in practice and accelerate the innovation process in companies.
As a Trusted Industry Advisor, the center uses the ImplAiX® implementation methodology and tools developed in the Smart Logistics Cluster for integrated business applications along the entire supply chain. Besides, we design, build and operate our own reference implementation, which is implemented in cooperation with our members, both in the Innovation Labs and in the Industrie-4. Reference Factory.
