id-x platform





Always one step ahead of the competition with value management

In the global environment, this method is indispensable for product development when it comes to competitiveness.

Value management describes a simple and efficient approach and ideally allows to increase the value of the product while reducing costs. The value analysis also includes an initial functional analysis, a cost analysis and a detailed analysis. However, this is always followed by a workshop to develop ideas in a cross-functional team. The tool for the value management process:

valueTracker support


For a certain time, Excel lists and presentations work well. Even when data is collected, paper and pencil always work. But as soon as people start searching for information or ideas, things start to get a bit complicated. At best, all files are stored in a structured and secure way on the company’s own servers. But without knowing where the data has been stored, finding information is often very time-consuming and practically impossible for colleagues. This is where a database makes sense and also simplifies data entry and analysis. But the step from Excel and paper to a database does not only bring opportunities but also risks. It all depends on the appropriate structuring of your data and processes. For this it is necessary to apply a combination of business knowledge and database knowledge. The system must be tailored to your business to increase effectiveness and provide a short term ROI. We want to share our many years of experience in this area with you and help you to successfully manage the digital transformation.

id-x platform product logo






Data on measurements, ratings or photos of products are available on the market for every company. Every company can acquire the same data and use it for itself.

But data alone does not deliver added value. Valuable knowledge is only created by enriching the data with the know-how and experience of the company’s own employees. In addition, internal knowledge is often not or only insufficiently made available to other employees. Valuable knowledge is thus lost or simply inaccessible.




Modern companies are making it their goal to drive forward the digitization of processes and workflows. In doing so, procured data is enriched with proprietary knowledge and solutions are made available centrally and to all relevant departments.

The innovative and highly networkable id-x|platform helps you to realize these goals. Through interfaces, comfortable features and automatisms, simple data becomes valuable knowledge, which you can make available individually in the whole company.

Plan, Do, Check, Act, the PDCA circle for continuous improvement with the id-x|platform:
PLAN / create, plan and manage projects

DO / collect information, ideas, improvement potentials with mobile devices of the employees
CHECK / check and enrich information with in-house know-how
ACT / Build a knowledge database and share knowledge within the company

id-x transformation


For the digitization of processes it is not enough to just store information digitally on servers. Digitization with the id-x|platform has the goal of

  • the easy searching and finding of information
  • the continuous availability of knowledge and solutions throughout the company
  • the possibility of global collaboration and the standardization of terminologies and processes

In addition, information, whether external or internal, can be enriched with the company’s own know-how, evaluated, classified and processed into solutions.


A major cost factor in companies today, despite advancing digitization, is the administrative effort involved in data management. Collecting, preparing and sharing data takes a lot of time. With the helpful features of the id-x|platform this effort is reduced enormously to use resources more efficiently. Make your success measurable for a tangible ROI.

id-x cost savings
id-x optimization


Due to the pressure of competition, companies are continuously challenged to make their products better and better and their processes more and more efficient and to use the advantages of digitalization.
Digitization helps to make knowledge transparent within the company. Solutions for improving products do not have to be developed several times, but are available to the development departments. New ideas and innovations are promoted and can be processed until they are implemented.

For high flexibility and various application

The ValueTracker is based on a structure of networked data objects (iTEMs) which, thanks to their flexibility and simplicity, can be used to map many use cases from product development. The iTEMS can be used to define any number of data objects of any size. This means that your use case can be mapped very precisely. In addition, users can create iTEMs themselves or modify existing ones.
iTEMs can be connected with each other as desired in order to map real use cases. For example, products can be linked to ideas and additionally to technologies, which in turn are linked to technology clusters or to assemblies / components.
iTEMs and clusters are the essential component of the ValueTracker. They make the ValueTracker the tool that integrates seamlessly into your development processes and immediately generates added value.

id-x platform: interface design

Design the user interface

Id-x start pages allow you to structure your data individually tailored to your organization. Define the external appearance yourself and represent your department, for example.
Start pages can be defined individually for different product areas or user groups. Thus, everyone has the access to data that is permitted and desired. Layout and content can be adjusted by authorized users at any time.
Determine what can be seen on your page, iTem lists, news, favorites, FAQs, movies, URLs, etc.

Control the access to your data

Create as many users as necessary and assign them a user group. Through this you can define exactly which products, projects, technologies, components or ideas are available.
Thus you have full control over your data and can determine exactly who should have no, read, write, edit, delete and administrator rights.

The tool to find solutions and solve problems

Instead of focusing on the problems, companies today concentrate on the solutions. Issues lists or LOPs (list of open points) help in project management to keep product development organised and structured and to always keep an eye on the problems. The goal is to find solutions to the problems in order to be able to check off the point. These solutions are often not documented or described. So other project groups have to look for the same solutions. The philosophy of guidelines, lessons learned or best practice are well known, but have never been so easy to implement as with the ValueTracker.
Carry out product audits with mobile devices, intelligently and automatically categorise the recorded data, simultaneously search for solutions, always keep an eye on the project status and distribute, receive and process tasks and map entire workflows.

digital workshops


Efficiency through digitisation of workshops

The objective of a VA/VE workshop can be to reduce the costs of a product, to improve the quality or the scope of functions. For this purpose, entire products or only components are usually disassembled down to their individual parts and analysed by different experts. Each participant sketches ideas for this, which are collected afterwards and evaluated by the team. Without the help of digital solutions, an enormous amount of time is needed to process the information.

Collected ideas always in view and in real time

Get linked with product

With ValueTracker, participants connect to the product via a QR code when they enter the workshop room. Once connected, they can take photos of the individual parts on which they sketch their ideas and enrich them with information. The collected ideas can be analysed and evaluated by the team immediately after the idea collection without any additional effort. Ideas with potential can be monitored and tracked in ValueTracker until they are implemented. Digital from the start.


User-centred development – with user feedback

It often makes sense to ask colleagues or smaller focus groups about a topic in order not to develop without the user in mind. In the field of user experience and perceived quality, this method is regularly used to steer the project in the right direction.

With ValueTracker, focus groups can connect to the product questionnaire on site via QR code or they are invited to an online survey via a link. Here, the questionnaires can be created individually and always anew. However, the data remains bundled in one place and can be accessed, analysed and compared with other feedback at any time.
