Digital Connection of Drinking Water Transfer Points

We are a family-owned down-to-earth company based in Attendorn, Germany, offering solutions for the supply of drinking water. We deal with the mobile supply of drinking water and connection to the house.

Start-ups

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
