Four application-oriented departments (units) with the common base of mathematics, computer science and many years of practical experience.

Based on a unique combination of skills in mathematics, computer science and practical experience, both in industrial processes as well as in engineering sciences, the interdisciplinary teams of the RISC Software GmbH develop (individual) software solutions for business and industry. The special feature of RISC Software GmbH is the combination of scientific know-how in mathematics and computer science, as well as the ability acquired over the years to translate complex and challenging industrial problems into useful and sustainable software. Whether individually adapted to existing systems or implemented consistently, the customer gets solutions that he/she actually needs for his/her operations in the company. The result is individual software solutions which, beyond standard software, give the customer a competitive advantage over its competitors. Consequently, the business divisions (= units) of the RISC Software GmbH are divided in an application-oriented manner. These units cover different disciplines and create a wide variety of solutions for engineering, logistics, information technology and medicine.

Units RISC

Logistics Informatics

The Unit Logistics Informatics (RISC-LI) designs and develops software for the planning, optimization, simulation and control of processes, e.g., the mathematical optimization of production processes, the planning and simulation of supply networks, intra-logistics or internal material flows. It provides the combined expertise in the areas of smart transport logistics, information systems for logistics networks, as well as material flow and production planning. Industry knowledge is as thereby important as technical know-how and application-oriented research in this area.

Industrial Software Applications

The Unit Industrial Software Applications (RISC-ISA) specializes in industrial applications for simulation, analysis and optimization in engineering disciplines. It is highly specialized in the needs and requirements of modern industry and creates custom software to meet the stringent and complex challenges of industries such as aerospace or machine tool manufacturing.

Medical Informatics

The Unit Medical Informatics (RISC-MI) conducts applied research in modern medicine. Here, highly specialized and internationally used software is developed in the areas of medical image processing, biomechanical simulation and patient virtualization.

Advanced Computing Technologies

In the Unit Advanced Computing Technologies (RISC-ACT) everything revolves around performance software solutions for highly complex distributed systems, and high performance computing. Here, applications in cloud, grid and high performance computing are created to assist customers in making the best use of different hardware architectures. These, at first glance, four completely different areas connect the symbiotic combination of mathematics and software engineering together with industry know-how to create software solutions for business.

This is not about a separation, but rather a bundling of different strengths in specialized disciplines. A mutual exchange is an important principle and part of the corporate culture. Accordingly, many projects are handled on an inter-unit level.
