Ann Arbor, MI, September 13, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces that noted PLM expert, Dr.-Ing. Martin Eigner will make a keynote presentation at PLM Road Map EMEA 2018. This one-day event will be held in collaboration with PDT Europe. The events will take place on 24 & 25 October at Le Meridien Hotel, Stuttgart, Germany. The theme for PLM Road Map is “Digitalizing Reality—PLM's role in enabling the digital revolution.”
In a mid-range vehicle, there are over 100 vertical mechatronic and cybertronic systems. Each system consists of up to 30 subsystems. Today, these vertical systems are each assigned to a specific system supplier who has mechatronic development competence. In his presentation, Dr. Eigner will consider what benefits could be derived if the systems were horizontally networked. For example, a much higher consumer benefit would arise if the Adaptive Cruise Control were networked with the Navigation and Steering System. The presentation will show that in order to implement this interconnectivity, automotive OEMs need to take on the Mechatronic Architecture competency and design and network horizontal systems at an upper level of the system architecture.
Professor Eigner is a leading expert in Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and Model-Based Systems Engineering. After graduating from the University of Karlsruhe (Germany) in 1980, Professor Eigner was head of Technical Data Processing in a division of Robert Bosch GmbH. In 1985 he founded EIGNER + PARTNER INC., which was later sold to ORACLE. In 2003 he founded EIGNER Engineering Consult, a consulting company for the optimization of engineering processes with a focus on PLM.
From 1984 Professor Eigner has been lecturing at universities and has authored or co-authored 13 books and several papers on CAD/PDM/PLM, IT in Engineering, and Model-Based Systems Engineering. Until recently, Professor Eigner was the chair of Virtual Product Development at the University of Kaiserslautern in Germany.
PLM Road Map EMEA, in collaboration with PDT Europe, is the must-attend event for PLM industry leaders and PLM practitioners globally—providing independent education and a collaborative networking environment where ideas, trends, experiences, and relationships critical to the industry germinate and take root.
