The overall objective is the specification of a specific information service. In practice, such a specification provides the foundation for a tendering. The course is based on the NSEB process model with its individual steps, questions and methods. Related knowledge from other courses, especially Internet of Things at Supply Chain Managemen I and II, is part of the specification.

Central topics are among others:
