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

Bernhard Moser and Christian Motz won the Best Paper Award of the OAGM/AARP 2016 (Austrian Association for Pattern Recognition).

New book

Hagenberg Business Process Modelling Method

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.

Software for Disaster Management

Awarded with the E-Award

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.

Meet the SCCH at the HANNOVER Messe 2016

World stage for networked industry

The HANNOVER MESSE 2016 (www.hannovermesse.de) 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.

Systems Engineering

As driver for the smart factory

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.

For your Industrial Project

Evaluate the Suitability of a Formal Method

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?

A Graphical User Interface For A Cosy Home

Successful Cooperation with Windhager Zentralheizung

Together with central heating manufacturer Windhager from Seekirchen near Salzburg, a SAE team led by Mario Winterer implemented the graphical user interface for Windhager's new generation of solid fuel heating systems. This application allows both residents and service technicians comfortable access to heating and hot water functions.

The GUI framework Qt, where the SAE team has extensive professional expertise,  has been chosen as base technology for the application.

After months of intense development work, the team was able to release the first modules into an intensive field testing phase.

No nanoparticle shall evade us!

New process developed for measuring nanoparticles

In the realm of the project “Nanoparticle Tracking”, funded by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency, researchers at Software Competence Center Hagenberg (SCCH) have succeeded in significantly improving the analysis of nanoparticle samples.

Tackling the Software Crisis

Research Success in Advanced Computing

Following on from the highly successful EU ParaPhrase project, the University of St Andrews has obtained substantial further funding from the Europeon Union under the Horizon 2020 programme to study advanced computing. The 3.5M Euro RePhrase project is coordinated by Professor Kevin Hammond of the University of St Andrews, and brings together 8 leading academic and industry partners from the UK, Austria, Italy, Spain, Hungary and Israel.  It aims to tackle one of the most pressing problems in computer science: how to produce effective software for emerging "parallel" computer platforms, that promise significantly increased performance at significantly reduced cost and energy usage.

IMAGINE 2015

Conference for IT-Innovation

IMAGINE is a conference series on Information and Communication Technology (ICT). It takes place annually. IMAGINE brings together the world of ICT in Austria and shows the excellence in research, development and applications with a look into the future. So the IMAGINE also serves always as a radar for the ICT of the future research funding program of bmvit. As part of the Imagine Dr. Josef Pichler will present the project interface designer within the framework of Industry 4.0.
