Application-oriented research company in the field of software

Partner for industry and science

As one of the largest independent research centers in Austria in the field of software, Software Competence Center Hagenberg (SCCH) plays a harbinger role for software-related technological research and development trends.

Software Competence Center Hagenberg was founded by five departments of Johannes Kepler University Linz (Prof. Buchberger (RISC), Prof. Pomberger (Institute for Business Informatics), Prof. Klement (Institute for Knowledge-Based Mathematical Systems; Fuzzy Logic Laboratory Linz-Hagenberg), Prof. Wagner (FAW Institute for Application-Oriented Knowledge Processing) and Prof. Engl (Institute for Industrial Mathematics)) in July 1999 in the realm of the K plus competence program

Hagenberg Business Process Modelling Method

New book

This book presents a proposal for designing business process management (BPM) systems  that comprise much more than just process modelling. Based on a purified Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) variant, the authors present proposals for several important issues in BPM that have not been adequately considered in the BPMN 2.0 standard. It focusses on modality as well as actor and user interaction modelling and offers an enhanced communication concept.

Awarded with the E-Award

Software for Disaster Management

Host, Mr. Dirk Lukaschik, CEO of T-Systems, presented the winners of the E-Award 2016. The submitted projects impressively  showed the importance of digitization and how it affects all economic and living areas. This circumstance effects many companies, but also the entire society", says Lukaschik. "In order to line up for the digital transformation, IT organizations need completely new skills,  technologies and management approaches.

World stage for networked industry

Meet the SCCH at the HANNOVER Messe 2016

The HANNOVER MESSE 2016 ( is the global hotspot for industry 4.0. In April all the drivers of industrial digitization come together in Hannover. Under the motto " Integrated Industry - Discover Solutions " technologies for digitization of factories and energy systems will be shown.



A research result of the K-Project imPACTS, the innovative ChemSaaS - approach was submitted for this year's HERMES AWARD. The HERMES AWARD is an international technology prize awarded at the Hannover Messe 2016. It promotes a rapid implementation of new ideas into marketable products.  Awarded will be an outstanding innovation that will be presented for the first time at the Hannover Messe 2016.

As driver for the smart factory

Systems Engineering

The wide-ranging discussion on Industry 4.0 (the smart factory) has made it ever clearer that the digitization and so the modeling of products along with their manufacture will be core components of future production. This requires the use of models for more and more aspects of product development and production. 30 participants followed the invitation of the SCCH to this experts workshop at the beginning of March.

Evaluate the Suitability of a Formal Method

For your Industrial Project

The quality of software and its development processes can be considerably enhanced by using formal engineering methods. Formal methods can be introduced gradually, in customisable ways, with less effort for a start than many will assume. There exist many different methods, each of which suitable for certain project types, settings, and quality goals. But how do you choose the right method for your company or project?
