Researchers at Germany's Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS have designed NSEB, a service-engineering platform to help accelerate the development of information technology services.

"So far there have been no reasonable procedure models and development platforms, in particular for designing information services that are based on new communication technologies," says Fraunhofer's Alexander Pflaum.

The NSEB platform will guide people through the development process, including business administration and technology. "We provide the methodology, tools, and contents, [and] our partners supply the specific information that we need for a successful development process," Pflaum notes.

The platform consists of four activity steps, including a two-day workshop on feasibility and profit potential, a two- to four-week assessment of costs and benefits of the project, and sessions for engaging scientists on design questions and writing down the specifications.
