Michael Affenzeller at the SISOM Workshop in Rome

The SISOM Workshop was held in Main Auditorium of INAIL (Piazzale Pastore, Rome, Italy) on March 20, 2017.

Michael Affenzeller was invited to hold a session about "Integrated Modeling and Optimization in Industry 4.0" - a part of the Industry 4.0 at International Level workshop.

Industry 4.0 is the current Paradigm of Automation and Data Exchange in manufacturing leading to Smart Manufacturing; the idea is to combine concepts such as Cyber-Physical Systems, the Internet of Things, Cloud Computing, Modeling and Simulation, Augment & Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence and Intelligent Agents to create a common intuitive framework to control the Industrial Processes

Modeling and Simulation use the computers to recreate real systems on computers and to experiment them within such virtual environment; this allow to conduct experiments and tests even before a new industrial system is realized and to conduct Virtual Prototyping as well as to develop Training Equipment and decision Support Systems (DSS)
