The "VIPER" research project aims to enable manufacturing companies to independently evaluate and design the adaptability of their IT systems for order processing and production. The focus is on improving IT systems in manufacturing companies, as these systems are an essential part of industrial value creation.

The project includes the identification of change drivers and enablers as well as their influences on the socio-technical information system. The results of the project should improve the quality of decision-making when selecting a new IT system, increase the longevity of IT systems and reduce the effort and risk involved in adapting IT systems and change projects.
