Depending on the membership type chosen, members will benefit from the following service modules:
As the Chair of Production Engineering, Prof. Schuh is a driving force behind tomorrow’s production technology at the Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering (WZL) of RWTH Aachen University. One particular strength of the Chair is the close interlinking of academic engineering and business management research, which is conveyed and deepened in various projects in support of manufacturing companies. The topics of the Chair include production and innovation management, business development, factory planning and vehicle production.
Prof. van der Aalst is a recipient of the Alexander von Humboldt professorship and Director of the Process and Data Science Group (PADS) within the occupational group Information Technology at RWTH Aachen. The areas of interest of the group include all activities, in which discrete processes are analyzed, revised and/or supported with data-controlled means. The focus on the process is combined with a large number of data science techniques. The result is then associated with neighboring disciplines like business research, algorithms, discrete behavior simulation, business process management and workflow automation.
