ICT

The activities of Slot Consulting in Information & Communication Technologies started with smaller related jobs in aeronautics projects and this area slowly grew to a self-standing domain in the portfolio of the company. The related tasks are still mainly in the field of aviation but the ICT expertise behind is generic so it is applicable to other industries also. The utilisation of this knowledge in other areas of life has started: the development of a maritime navigation application and a proposal development for automotive ICT company are examples for this.

Skills in this field cover the normal ICT related steps:
1. Setting up the requirements and specifications
2. Architectural and system design
3. Programming
4. Testing

Furthermore, by combined with our other relevant skills, e.g. aviation operations, validations and general assessment knowledge, our service in ICT can be a real added value for customers and users.
