The two managing directors of the IconPro GmbH are Dr.-Ing. Edgar Dietrich, former founder and managing director of Q-DAS GmbH & Co. KG, and Markus Ohlenforst, former head of the Large Scale Metrology Group at the Chair of Production Metrology and Quality Management.

The start-up focuses on the development and application of process mining software for the analysis and correlation of production process and quality data through machine learning. Customers benefit from increased quality and productivity by identifying and utilizing potential for optimization and avoiding bottlenecks in their production and inspection processes. Production process data is extracted from ERP, MES or SPC systems and analyzed and correlated using machine learning algorithms. The entire process can be fully automated and visualized in the form of dashboards. In addition, IconPro GmbH also offers individual consulting projects and workshops on the topics of "Production Process Mining" and "Artificial Intelligence in Quality Management".

"Our goal is to help our industrial customers concentrate on the essentials: The development and sale of their product! We look forward on being able to accompany numerous companies on this journey in the future"

Markus Ohlenforst, Managing Director of IconPro GmbH
