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)

K-Project HOPL in "Der Standard"

Some time ago the K-Project HOPL was mentioned in an article in the Austrian newspaper "Der Standard" - Michael Affenzeller was interviewed by the newspaper to explain the aim and goal of the K-project.

Mini-Symposium at EUROGEN - Applications of Optimization in Engineering Design Automation (AppODA)

Mini-Symposium at EUROGEN, Sep 13-15, 2017, Madrid, Spain

Based on a history of automating design calculations, simulation support, and applying artificial intelligence and optimization in engineering domains, design automation (DA) provides methods and tools for exploring solution spaces and generating designs at different levels of detail.

Optimization problems are often an inherent part of DA approaches and solutions since the complexity of products often yields optimization tasks which exceed the human capacity to solve them manually. In order to support the striving to fully explore the design envelope before making decisions with a high impact on committed costs, a wide range of industries has thus adopted optimization problems within engineering DA. Exemplary application areas include the validation and improvement of structural aspects and the appropriate selection, dimensioning and assembling of components to fulfil customer-specific needs. Beyond, also optimization methods to guide solution finding related to tasks with large and unstructured solution spaces have received increased attention.

This symposium aims at bringing together practitioners and scientists from academia, research institutes and industry to discuss about practical and scientific problems and solution strategies in the context of engineering design automation and optimization.
