President and CEO of Lexer, Japan

Topic: The role of simulation in industry 4.0 transition

Prof. Dr. Timo Hartmann

UT Berlin, Germany

To tackle the social and natural challenges around our built and natural environment we need to significantly change how we design and engineer projects. Considering pressing needs to adapt to demographic changes, population growth, and global warming, engineers will need to design much faster to a much higher quality. Digital methods and technologies can help, but to leverage their full potential two mind shifts are required: we need to change how we work with data and we need to restructure our design/engineering processes from providing solutions to exploring the generic structure of the design problem at hand. During the talk, I will discuss the required mind-shifts using examples from our ongoing research work. The presentation will close with my suggestion for a university curriculum for educating the built and natural environment engineers of the future that we implemented at the TU Berlin.

Topic: Application of Simulation to Teach Lean Automation Concept



1. Laptop with Internet Explorer version 7 – 11 and Install Microsoft Silverlight

2. Internet access




For those who are interested in joining the workshop are requested to register in order to send participants user name and password to access GD.findi.



The objective of this workshop is to introduce the concept of designing lean Automation using the production simulation on Cloud, GD.findi, by Lexer Research Inc. We will build simple automation model and work on the simulation result to interactively navigate detailed simulation record data using production cockpit and output visualizer, Material Flow Chart. Participants will learn how to design the initial work in process and machine cycle time that could improve the efficiency of the production line. Moreover, participants could get hand on with the teaching material that they could also adopt for teaching an introduction simulation class for a semester long. At the end of the workshop, the advance concept on optimization and scheduling on cloud utilizing the API to interface with GD.findi Massively Parallel Simulation Computing (PVDO) will also introduced.
