The development of a standard library for production systems, presented by Carsten Meyer and Tobias Lechler.
Standardization and integrating standardized software tools into the workflow of experts can be a challenging task. While defining a tool as a standard is an important step, ensuring its effective utilization requires a thoughtful approach. In this article, we will explore the journey of Robert Bosch GmbH in developing a standard library for production systems. By emphasizing the importance of standards development, data consistency and training, Bosch aims to engage both new users and existing experts, fostering widespread adoption of their standard library.
Standardization plays a crucial role in successful production simulation. It establishes a common framework and set of guidelines, ensuring consistency and compatibility across different simulation projects. This enables the integration of models, data and workflows, facilitating collaboration and knowledge sharing. Secondly, standardization enhances efficiency by streamlining processes and reducing errors. It enables rapid model development, simplifies model maintenance and allows for easy comparison and benchmarking. Furthermore, standardized simulation practices enable better decision-making, as they provide reliable and consistent results for evaluating different scenarios and optimizing production systems. Ultimately, standardization promotes reliability, scalability and repeatability, leading to more effective and successful production simulations.
Carsten Meyer and Tobias Lechler, esteemed professionals at Robert Bosch, will be sharing their expertise at the upcoming 2023 Plant Simulation User Conference in Munich, Germany.
Carsten Meyer brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table. With a background in industrial engineering from HTW Aalen and EAH Jena, Carsten started his journey by developing video analysis software for the Bosch plant in Eisenach back in 2017. Since 2018, he has served as a material flow simulation specialist in Bosch’s corporate department for manufacturing services. Carsten has been actively involved in supporting the “Digital Production” working group within the Powertrain Solutions division since 2019. His focus lies in developing training courses and standardization and he boasts an impressive track record of successfully completing Plant Simulation software projects for 16 plants across 7 divisions.
Tobias Lechler is a leading expert in the field of production system simulation and standardization. After pursuing mechanical engineering studies at DHBW Stuttgart and FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg, Tobias dedicated his research efforts to production system simulation at the Institute for Factory Automation and Production Systems (FAU) at Friedrich Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg from 2018 to 2021. Since 2022, he has taken on the pivotal role of leading the central Industry 4.0 working group “Digital Production” at Robert Bosch GmbH, Powertrain Solutions division. Tobias focuses on the further development, standardization and implementation of simulation solutions for production systems.
