FOSS Platform Architecture Development


Companies / Organizations


North Zealand

FOSS is a global leading player within food analysis. The products offered by FOSS is primarily highly advanced analytical instruments and related services.

FOSS has over the last years seen a record growth in both turnover and profit. At the same time the R&D department has doubled in size the last 3 years and will continue to grow even larger

Covering 7 different food segments from grain to milk over meat the product portfolio has increased dramatically to currently ~50 product offerings.

Hereby the complexity has risen to a level where it is hard for the designers to keep track of different possibilities lying in the solutions already designed and in the solutions that are currently in development.

This leads to high component cost, high complexity, high inventory cost and longer development time.

There is therefore a need to start a study within Platform Architecture Development.

In the long run, FOSS wants to achieve a larger product portfolio with fewer components, lower cost and shorter development time by utilizing the benefits of modularization and platform architecture.
