The group contributes to the following application oriented research topics of WIAS:

Simulation, optimization and optimal control of production processes

In the area of procuction, there is a huge demand for planning and optimization tools that allow for an accelerated re-planning and reconfiguration of complex production facilities. In this context, the key words are "digital factory" or "Industry 4.0", which represents the transition to a connected, widely self-organized industrial production. This interconnectivity allows not only for the optimization of individual production steps, but also of the entire value chain. [>> more]
