Dear prostep ivip members,
With COVID-19 we are not only facing
a systemic crisis of our global state of health, but also a stress
test for our global economic system and related people and supply
chains. Due to these circumstances the prostep ivip board of
management decided to cancel the unique prostep ivip Symposium in
May. Ensuring the health and the focus on professional issues of
our international referees, members and guests is important to
us and for the symposium and should not be jeopardized.
At the same time, we believe it is important, that this unique
expert community can come together in a year like this, as the
new forms of digitization and their related models, data, forms
of work, and tools for the technical systems of today and tomorrow
do not allow an adjournment. Therefore, we are planning to reschedule
the Symposium 2020 for September this year!
The new solutions
of Advanced Systems Engineering with the three pillars Advanced
Systems, Systems Engineering and Advanced Engineering now require
clear and comprehensible steps forward for each industry and each
company. It is necessary to move beyond the period of fundamental
reflection, going through the following stages with determination
and serious commitment:
All this requires both, a clear head and expert know-how, but also new
courage and spirited commitment of those responsible with quite unusual means.
This brings us full circle to the Corona crises, which requires: no hesitating,
but resolute action with competence and vision. The prostep ivip association
has the right people and skills for this endeavor. Let us act!
- Status Quo and Need for Action
Where do we currently stand, where do we need to go and why? What novel
contribution do I need to make for the development of sustainable technical systems?
- The new Priority/Objective
we need to position ourselves anew or differently? What changes are necessary
for our current digital development model? What new abilities do we want to
achieve for a successful Advanced Systems Engineering in the immediate and far future?
- Gradual Development and Realization of new Development Possibilities
At what point can we use digital solutions that are already available
differently? And where do we bid farewell to the old ways? What systemic
connections are to be described and recorded additionally or differently
from now on, and what modellings and AI-support should be used? What new
simulations should I combine with what data analytics? What new solution
elements should I arrange for (e.g. clarifying the role of digital twins)?
