Fraunhofer IESE, Kaiserslautern
The Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental Software Engineering IESE enjoys a worldwide reputation for methods and processes for industrial software and systems development based on empirical evidence. Regardless of whether software is embedded in cars, planes, or medical devices, whether it is part of a larger system, or whether it is applied autonomously: Our cross-domain project work is always based on state-of-the-art scientific knowledge and corresponding advanced technologies and tools. This is how the institute safeguards the quality of highly integrated systems solutions in which software increasingly becomes the part that adds value to a product. Fraunhofer IESE treats software not just as a module, but always as a product within the product that must be developed in an engineering-style manner.
