Develop ethical IT systems

Value-based engineering with ISO/IEC/IEEE 24748-7000

Design and develop ethical IT systems

Value-Based Engineering (VBE) is a methodology based on the international standard ISO/IEC/IEEE 24748-7000 for integrating ethical and social values into the development and implementation of IT systems. The methodology is already in use and has been practically tested in numerous case studies. VBE is therefore a relevant method for the comprehensive consideration of ethical aspects in a system as early as in the development phase, thereby helping to avoid the need for expensive changes in later project phases. In addition, VBE strengthens the dialog with stakeholders and enables the sustainable building of trust. 


We support and advise you in the implementation of your critical IT projects to ensure that they are not only technically excellent, but also ethical and sustainable. We offer individual advice to ensure that your IT systems meet the highest ethical standards and strengthen user trust. Get involved with us for a responsible and value-based design of your IT projects.

The advantages of VBE andISO/IEEE 24748-7000

Be ready for the upcoming EU AI Act.

With VBE, you can identify the risks of AI systems right from the system design stage.

Take ethical aspects into account when designing your IT system.

This will help you avoid late changes.

Involve stakeholders at an early stage.

New technology raises concerns that are better addressed proactively by engaging in dialog.

Use a method developed by practitioners that integrates seamlessly into your existing processes.

What we offer you 
  • As a VBE Pioneer and IEEE SA Training Partner, we advise you on the best way to realize your upcoming IT project.

  • We provide you and your team with the necessary knowledge about VBE and ISO/IEC/IEEE 24748-7000 in customized training formats.

  • We advise you on how to make VBE and ISO/IEC/IEEE 24748-7000 an integral part of your development projects.

  • Be ready for the EU AI Act and help advance AI ethics and responsible innovation.

Operationalize Ethics

The Three Phases of Value-Based Engineering

If you use value-based engineering and ISO/IEC/IEEE 24748-7000, you are well prepared for the challenges of developing AI systems. Organizations that focus on ethical compliance and responsible innovation have an advantage. Legislation and a critical public make transparent, value-oriented development unavoidable.


Use VBE as a structured, documented and standardized approach to make ethics tangible and operationalizable.



SOI and context exploration

  • Analyze your System-of-Interest and the context it is used in.

  • Scrutinize 3rd party dependencies (system-of-systems)

  • Create comprehensive documentation.



  • Engage with stakeholders directly or indirectly impacted by your planned system.

  • List values affected by involving well defined ethical theories.

  • Aggregate and prioritize core-values impacted.


aligned design

  • Derive Ethical Value Requirements (EVRs) for your technology and your organization

  • Analyse Risks based on EVRs and define measures to control them

  • Consider Certification with respect to your process or your IT system, e.g. with IEEE CertifAIEd.
