About the OMILAB Node

At the heart of Winterthur, BOC Group Switzerland presents the OMiLAB Node - a creative forge specialized in critically examining existing business processes, corporate architectures, and business models. The goal is to provide a breeding ground for innovation and digital transformation through the application of innovative methods such as Design Thinking, Storyboarding, and conceptual modeling. In the OMiLAB at BOC Switzerland, digital twins are created, enabling the development and refinement of resilient process flows as well as new product and service offerings.

The use of creative methods is central to our efforts not only to create innovative business models but also to rethink existing structures. Through critical examination of the current state, new potentials are unlocked and forward-looking concepts are developed. The provided infrastructure allows for the creation and experimental use of digital twins and the design of future scenarios.

The OMiLAB at BOC Switzerland is an open platform aimed at supporting companies from any industry in actively shaping change and setting the course for an innovative future.
