Thesis project at Scania is an excellent way of making contacts for your future working life. Many of our current employees started their career with a thesis project.

Background:

We’d like to welcome a new bee in IT industry and to be able to help us with a chatbot for our support section at Scania’s Contracted Service & Warranty department.

A simple example of the use case we have in mind is: If an user wants to change the status of a contract. My BOT should behave like this.

  • [User 1]:         Hello
  • [BOT:]            Hello User1. How can I help you?
  • [User 1]:         I want to change the status of a contract.
  • [BOT:]            Here you go. Refer to Ramas user admin manual under the heading status.
  • [User 1]:         Thanks.

The above can be improvised based on our approach and success factor.

Target:

The purpose of the thesis project is to investigate how chatbots can be used in the support area and find a suitable way of developing chatbots to help users with frequently asked questions.

Assignment:

What should be investigated in the thesis project:

To start with we can have an interactive chat bot that can be developed using any programming languages like C# / Phyton that could be hosted on a hosting server like AWS and make it available to our users to get answers for any support to user related questions.

Any additional ideas and suggestions are welcomed.
