TNO, Obeo and Altran manage the complexity of high-tech systems

Bridging the innovation gap
Bringing advanced development methodologies for software engineering to the market

During the ESI symposium on 9 April, TNO, Obeo and Altran signed a memorandum of understanding to work together on solutions for this complexity. The theme of the ESI symposium is "Intelligence, the next challenge in system engineering"? More than 450 system engineers from the broad high-tech industry and academic network of ESI attended the symposium.

The high-tech industry supplies products of ever-increasing complexity. This complexity is such that insight, perspective and, at the same time, keeping a grip on the details have become a great challenge and not a foregone conclusion. No matter how good system engineers are, the human brain can no longer simply grasp this complexity. ESI, part of TNO, has been working for years in open innovation with partners from the high-tech industry and academia on the development of methodologies to manage this complexity. It is partly thanks to these methods that the Dutch high-tech industry remains globally competitive. Implementing these advanced development methodologies have already led to engineering efficiency improvements ranged between 20% to 80%.

Are you a complexitect?

Intense competition, an ongoing battle for talent, new technologies, shifting business models; the high-tech industry faces many extrinsic challenges. A major challenge however, comes from the inside: how to manage (and make good use of) the ever-increasing complexity? High-tech companies need to develop professionals that are able to look and think beyond the borders of a discipline, department or even the company itself.
