Employee Certification

The know-how and skills of its employees are the most important assets of F + S GmbH. Therefore, the company attaches great importance to the continuous education of its employees. They are regularly instructed in internal trainings, for example on security in information technology.

External trainings are also on the agenda almost every month. For example, several employees were recently instructed to become a Professional Scrum Master or Product Owner. Other employees have received their safety expertise certified by the SGS-TÜV Saar and are now entitled to the title "AFSP - Automotive Functional Safety Professional". One employee has taken the next hurdle to the "AFSE - Automotive Functional Safety Expert".

Developers of the F + S GmbH attended courses with and without certification to the topics Requirements Engineering, Software Architecture, Software Test, but also to Artificial Intelligence. Our consultants were represented at various congresses, in particular on the topics IT Security, Automotive SPICE and Functional Safety, sometimes with their own lectures.

We are happy to consolidate and expand the know-how of F + S GmbH.

On tracks of the dutch royal house

As always, F + S GmbH invited employees, retirees and shareholders with their partners and children to this year's summer party.

In good weather the guests set out on foot along the Lahn to the castle Oranienstein in Diez. Already on the way you could switch off from work on views of the beautiful river Lahn. 

At the castle, the guests were awaited by an expert staff member of the castle administration, who opened the rooms of the magnificent baroque palace complex and guided them through the blue and gold hall, marshal's room, garden cabinet and castle chapel. At the Museum Nassau-Oranien, guests also learned all sorts of details and anecdotes from the life of the princes of Nassau-Diez, the ancestors of the Dutch royal family.

After the tour, it was a short walk down to the banks of the river Lahn, where the guests in the restaurant "Das neue Mühlchen" with drinks and a good buffet could recover and relax from the exertion. In casual conversations away from the workday, the attendees let the beautiful summer evening come to an end.

Girls'Day at F+S

girls day wir machen mitOn March 28th 2019 the Girls'Day took place all over Germany. Each year, companies and organizations participate in around 10,000 events to support career orientation for girls, especially in so-called "men's jobs". F+S GmbH has also prepared for this year's Girls'Day to show 3 girls that SW development in the automotive sector is not just a male domain.

The girls between the ages of 13 and 15 came from secondary and high schools around Limburg, were very interested in technical subjects and had already considered a technical career path.

After a warm welcome, a guided tour of the company and a F+S presentation by the management, the girls were introduced to various practical topics of work at F+S by several employees: they were introduced to the work environment in embedded software development for the automotive industry, they got some first basic knowledge of Python and MATLAB programming and were able to experience a cluster instrument in a live demo. A practical experiment was also prepared and carried out: with the help of Raspberry Pi sensors, the girls took a series of measurements with and without preheated espresso cups, processed the data with a Python script and created a diagram. We did not expect the result either.

This brought an exciting day to an end, which also gave our F+S employees a lot of fun. We hope to have strengthened the girls in their interest in a technical profession and look forward to the Girls'Day 2020.

Embedded World 2019

EmbeddedWorld2019 Stand

Once again this year, F + S GmbH exhibited at the embedded world trade fair in Nuremberg. With more than 1.100 exhibitors, embedded world is the most important meeting place for the international embedded community.

F + S GmbH once again presented a floating cube as an eye catcher, this time even further optimized: printed with our portfolio, the cube floated freely in the room above the F + S booth and turned continuously. An LED running light underlined the floating effect. The cube attracted a lot of attention and led to interesting discussions.

As every year, we met many of our customers and numerous new interested parties and discussed with them current trends around software development in the automotive industry. The interest in CyberSecurity has been stable all the time, but also our offer for Functional Safety according to ISO 26262, SPICE 3.1 and Embedded SW development were in demand again.
