Session: Product Realization for the Aerospace and Defense Industry michael walker.jpgMichael Walker

This session will focus on the benefits of digitalization in manufacturing for the aerospace and defense industry. Primary focus will be on product realization, key characteristics (PMI), trace-ability, and service engineering. Future factory and Industry 4.0 topics will also be discussed. 


Learning Objectives:

  • Strategize to meet current industry trends using Siemens solutions

  • Identify solutions to meet business challenges

  • Innovative strategy to digitalize business

Presenter: Michael Walker, Portfolio Development Executive, Siemens Digital Industries 

Date: Monday, June 10, 1:30 PM – 2:15 PM, Location: Room 336


Session:  Integrated Manufacturing for the Automotive Industry-BengtssonT(2).jpgTodd Bengtsson

This session will focus on the benefits of digitalization in manufacturing in support of integrated manufacturing for more predictable program launches in the automotive industry. To facilitate the new manufacturing strategies required in today’s automotive market, leading automakers must implement a collaborative approach that integrates engineering and manufacturing in the development of the launch process. This approach allows for early access to product engineering data so that manufacturing operations work in parallel and processes can be planned, optimized and validated concurrently with design. In this session you will learn how Siemens manufacturing solutions can help to implement such an integrated approach to increase the efficiency of deploying a modular platform that allows for a more predictable launch operation, and that provides management with clear visibility into program performance.  


Learning Objectives:

  • Strategize to meet current industry trends using Siemens solutions

  • Increase productivity and proficiency with current/future software

  • Innovative strategy to digitalize business  

Presenter: Todd Bengtsson, Director, Siemens Digital Industries

Date: Monday, June 10, 2:45PM – 3:30PM, Location:  Room 336


Session: Collaborative Manufacturing Heavy Equipment Makers

The current trends of global production and product complexity are having a major impact on heavy equipment manufacturers. In this session, we will discuss how Siemens Digital Manufacturing Solutions can help companies navigate these trends by enabling collaboration between different disciplines across the organization. We will show how Siemens’ open approach and fully integrated Digital Manufacturing portfolio can be leveraged to improve manufacturing efficiency and to take advantage of opportunities in the marketplace.

Learning Objectives:

  • Address current business challenges using Siemens solutions.

  • Analyze current industry trends that will impact the future.

  • Identify ways to digitalize the Heavy Equipment business.

Session: Train & Educate with Plant Simulation – Oakland UniversityRobert Van Til PhD.jpgRobert Van Til PhD

Oakland University’s Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE) Department has been an academic partner of Siemens PLM since 2011. Since that time, several Tecnomatix tools (Plant Simulation, Jack, Process Simulate Robotics) and Teamcenter have been integrated into courses in its undergraduate and graduate Industrial and Systems Engineering, Engineering Management, and Systems Engineering degree programs. This presentation will demonstrate how the ISE Dept. uses Plant Simulation to provide Industry 4.0 education not only to its students, but also to working engineers engaged in lifelong learning through both graduate degree and non-degree programs. Plant Simulation has been integrated into several courses to enhance the students’ educational experience by providing industry relevant assignments that demonstrate course concepts. After an assessment of the use of Plant Simulation in its courses, the ISE Dept. found that many students desired to take a deeper-dive into the use of Plant Simulation. This led to the creation of a new course titled PLM Applications – Throughput Simulation. This course provides a combination of both training and education by teaching details on how to operate Plan Simulation as well as by using Plant Simulation to complete various hands-on throughput simulation assignments.
