You can build everything, just need a plan step by step. Never run.
Make it simple and understandable by everyone. Everything else is an unuseful brain trouble.
Everything is a system. Understand the system, everything else will follow.
TeilWERK provides “socio-technological” integrated solutions both for Companies and Shared Workspaces as FabLabs, Coworking Spaces in order to support their growth within the framework of Sharing Economy.
What is a “socio-technological” solution?
Sharing Economy is based on some ideas and basic assumptions
which need BOTH technological and sociological approach.
For instance, sharing an equipment requires both a new way to manage the equipment by itself (how to book it, how to enable or disable it depending on the operator, and so on),
but also a different way to think to job organization, workflows, and other “social”, or “socio-economic” aspects.
IT’S NOT ENOUGH to have solutions to issues which come just from one side.
TeilWERK puts together both aspects.
TeilWERK helps to automatise collaborations inside communities.
We believe in:
Decentral Concepts (but all the hubs should be connected)
Multifactory as well as OwnCloud or other concepts, they all do not follow a central (Single Provider/Hosting) philiosophy. The future is P2P. People want to keep control, companies, too. So enable them to do so. Still there is space for central help, support and it is cloudy, too. (but more a collection of tiny clouds)
and we can still open a window (an API) to “old” cloud services (i.e. Cobot/Fabman…)
Free Access to Knowledge
Niedrigschwellig (low-treshold but growable)
Raspi as well as Cura, offer easy entry (Use and pricing) but can be used for very advance things too (Admin Easy (and advanced) or Usable out of the box or DIY or ProDIY). And even with the Biz Model (free at the beginning, or if you cant afford it since your too small). The real potential is the connection between different worlds i.e. Artis & engineers. Maker & Biz. Each one has a completely different mindsed so likes different management tools, so there is no ONE solution, used by everybody, it never will be. But everything is connected, so lets help others, and ourself, to manage that interaction barrier free (or low). It is a cool tool, but real innovation potential (and issues) are/is in social and organization. So think about motivation before you start implement a software or a tool. Keep an eye on social relations, personal behaviors first and if it does not help keep the IT away.
Following this Rule: Don´t think what you can get, think what can be your contribution* (all the rest will come, think about what you can give, and later you will get something in exchange. We can see it in our BizModel, too. At first we help the Maker scene with solutions/Consultancy. Then we hope to get it back by several ideas and models.
We are based in Saxony, you can meet us in Dresden and Chemnitz. But we also travel a lot for empirical research about innovative solutions for our customers.
