The increasing digitalization and the introduction of smart services pose new challenges for many companies. Their products are becoming increasingly complex, with software playing a larger part both in development and production in the context of shorter product life cycles. At the same time, coordinating between experts from different disciplines is becoming more important than ever. To ensure that companies can develop and manufacture products efficiently and smoothly, they need to integrate all systems involved in a comprehensive manner. Model-based approaches such as Model-based Systems Engineering, or MBSE for short, extend classic systems engineering approaches and support multidisciplinary development projects. MBSE helps to architect, simulate, validate, verify and certify complex products at an early stage employing cross-domain systems modeling and analysis techniques for efficient development as well as improved product quality.
The workshop will feature presentations by industry leaders and researchers, opportunities for Q&A's and panel discussions to foster active participation in between. We recommend this English language format to industry leaders and systems engineers as well as researchers and engineering educators. As an independent non-university research institution we at Fraunhofer IPK are excited to bring together international participants across all industries and academia.
