Market potential analysis of digital quality control for geotextiles

Key Info

Basic Information

Lehrstuhl für Innovation, Strategie und Organisation


Geotextiles are an important tool in a wide range of industries. For example, the use of early harvest nonwovens ensures that fields do not freeze and that food grows on fields even under climatically unfavorable conditions. In road construction, they are used for drainage and erosion control, among other things.
Your task:
Your task is to analyze the geotextile industry with regard to the efforts in the quality area. You are to identify which products are particularly expensive to control. In addition, you will analyze deficits in quality control (lack of skilled workers, no uniform testing standards, "sense of proportion", ...) and how these can be eliminated by digital technologies (machine vision, machine learning, ...). Finally, you evaluate the market potential of these solutions.
