Institute: Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Engineering IAO
Mission statement: Fraunhofer IAO has set up a DMS lab in which companies can try out and compare different document management systems. Researchers from the institute are on hand to explain the functions of the installed systems and provide advice where necessary. The lab allows potential users to obtain a first-hand picture of the way these systems work, and to compare their performance on the basis of standardized scenarios. Various usability approaches can also be applied to evaluate the systems at an early stage in the selection process.
