Efficient processes in production and logistics

MotionMiners GmbH is a spin-off of the Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics IML. With our Motion-Mining® technology, our start-up has developed a sensor and deep learning based method for the automatic analysis of manual working processes for Industry 4.0. The method reduces the required analysis effort, enlarges the data base, and uncovers optimization potential.
On the bottom line companies gain essential insights and approaches to optimizing their processes and working conditions (keyword: ergonomics). The anonymity of the employee is always assured.

The Motion-Mining® technology is based on sensors, beacons, and a deep learning algorithm developed in-house, which is able to generate process indicators (KPIs) regarding efficiency and ergonomics based on the raw data from the sensors and beacons. The Motion-Mining® technology is marketed in the form of various products and services. Consulting projects are currently offered in which the technology is used to answer concrete questions over a limited period of time. The portfolio is also being expanded at this time with a scalable product called Manual Process Intelligence (MPI). MPI is a hardware and software license combo that makes it possible for anyone to conduct process analyses with Motion-Mining® for the first time. It also enables customers to conduct process analyses independently at one or more locations as needed.

  • Customers for consulting projects
  • Customers for the MPI beta phase
  • Full-time software developers to expand our team
  • Research assistants in software development, marketing, and design
  • The first provider for automated process analysis
  • Full anonymization of employee data
  • No integration into company IT required
  • Simultaneous analysis of efficiency and ergonomics

Load carrier management

We are a software company founded in 2021 that offers a cloud-based solution for load carrier management. In doing so, we are rethinking this, extending classic account management with automatic account reconciliation and combining this with unique identification and tracking of load carriers as well as IoT sensors.

Our software is live and can therefore be used immediately. As a rule, we start with a live demo tailored to the customer. This is followed by a free trial month, at the end of which we conclude a contract with our customers on the conditions of use. Depending on requirements, we also provide support with interfaces and the selection of suitable hardware, in particular scanners and labels. 

Like any young company, we are looking for customers and partners with whom we can grow together. Our most important customer groups are industrial companies with their own load carriers, logistics service providers and load carrier manufacturers.

We are the first company ever to offer a holistic approach to load carrier management. Our customers can assemble their solution as they wish from our modules and thus use the latest technologies such as cloud computing, IoT, artificial intelligence and apps without any development effort on their part. Ease of use is a top priority for us, and within an hour anyone can learn how to use the software. Moreover, thanks to cloud computing, our customers do not need their own infrastructure.
