„Today, digitalization and sustainability are considered the most important drivers of change for manufacturing companies. With Advanced Systems Engineering, we develop interdisciplinary solutions to master the challenges that arise in the best possible way.”

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Roman Dumitrescu,
Head of the specialist group "Advanced Systems Engineering" at Heinz Nixdorf Institute, Paderborn University from Paderborn

Advanced Systems Engineering

Advanced systems engineering describes a new school of developing the intelligent technical systems of tomorrow.

Digitalisation is regarded as the outstanding driver of change today. It is creating fascinating potential benefits for industry, but digitalisation is also changing the market services of tomorrow and the way in which they are developed. More than ever, the overarching interplay of specialised disciplines such as electronics, IT and mechanical engineering is crucial. At the same time, the four main tasks of product development - strategic product planning, product development, service development and production system development - need to be closely coordinated and driven forward on a cross-disciplinary basis. Traditional development methods quickly reach their limits when developing the systems of tomorrow. More...
