Title: Trends Towards Engineering and Manufacturing Excellence

Abstract:

Many buzzwords and abbreviations are on everyone's lips these days: AI, ASE, CPS, AMP - Artificial Intelligence, Data Analytics, Advanced Systems Engineering, Digital Twins, Additive Manufacturing and many more. These topics are all important and interesting. But what effects do these topics have on manufacturing and industrial engineering, and where do they stand today? In this keynote we would like to highlight the state of the art in research and industrial applications. And not to forget: Humans are at the centre of all these efforts and the effects on the global economy should also be taken into account.

Biography:

 Prof. Oliver Riedel has been investigating the fundamentals and the practical application of virtual protection methods in product development and production for more than 25 years. He studied engineering cybernetics at the University of Stuttgart, where he also did his doctoral studies in the Faculty of Design and Production Technology. He subsequently headed numerous projects to introduce virtual methods in major international automotive companies and in the energy sector. After working at Fraunhofer IAO, he took on management positions at CENIT AG Systemhaus and Silicon Graphics Inc. in the area of professional services for virtual product development. He subsequently joined AUDI AG, where he was responsible for process integration and for information management in the product process before moving on to the Volkswagen Group in 2010 as director of information technology and product process integration. In 2012, he assumed responsibility for managing the planning processes and coordinating production-related IT at AUDI AG. Prof. Riedel has been Head of the Institute for Control Engineering of Machine Tools and Manufacturing Units (ISW) at the University of Stuttgart and holder of the IT for Production chair since November 2016. At the same time, he returned to Fraunhofer IAO as a member of the steering committee. He has now been appointed to the institute’s management team.
