Industrie 4.0
and the Future of Automation


About the Course

Taught in collaboration between RACE and Technical University Munich (TUM), this 2-day masterclass targets technical managers, engineers, technologists, and scientists interested in learning more about Industrie 4.0 from an eminent expert in the field. On Day 2, RACE will journey into possible areas of application.

Learning Objectives

Day 1 : Industrie 4.0 using SysML

Day 1 is delivered by Prof. Birgit Vogel-Heuser. Engineering concepts of Industrie 4.0, human machine interaction systems and intervention of smart data approaches will be discussed. These subjects will equip participants with the skills to judge and evaluate what an Industrie 4.0 system is, its components, capabilities and the necessity of the underlying models and technologies like agents and data analytics. After the module, participants will be able to identify beneficial use cases for their companies and the necessary prerequisites. Participants will also learn to model the knowledge of an Industrie 4.0 system as a prerequisite for increased reliability and overall equipment effectiveness.

Day 2 : Hands-on Implementation of the Industry 4.0 Vision by RACE

Day 2 will be delivered by the RACE team and it emphasizes the implementation of large elements of the Industry 4.0 vision. Participants will gain the experience in controlling a system of robots through a interoperable web interface and using data analysis to inject intelligence into the manufacturing process.

Understand industry 4.0 by going through our virtual tour where we go through different components of the fourth industrial revolution

What is Industry 4.0

We are currently in Industry 3.0 where robotics and motion control are employed in automating tasks in manufacturing. The fourth industrial revolution, or Industry 4.0, takes it a step further by introducing technologies such as  cyber-physical systems, internet of things, cloud computing, data analytics and big data to create a revolutionary approach to manufacturing.

Our Esteemed Trainer

Prof. Birgit Vogel-Heuser

Chair of Automation and
Information Systems at Technical
University Munich (TUM)

Professor Vogel-Heuser (b. 1961) conducts research on the development and system evolution of distributed intelligent embedded systems in mechatronic products and production systems, with the aim of improving product quality, the efficiency and consistency of engineering activities and operational availability. She develops methods, descriptive aids and tools for integrating the various perspectives of mechatronic systems, phases in the life cycle and their interactions. Key requirements are real-time behaviour, modularity, availability and usability.

 After graduating in electrical engineering at RWTH Aachen, she earned her doctorate degree there (1990) in the area of robot programming in mechanical engineering. She acquired industrial experience over ten years, including a position as Engineering Director for the Siempelkamp Group. After various professorships (Hagen 1996; Wuppertal 2000; Kassel 2006), she accepted the Chair of Automation and Information Systems (form. Information Technology) at TUM (2009). She is speaker of the DFG Collaborative Research Centre 768 “Managing cycles in innovation processes” and member of the coordination board of the DFG Priority Program 1593 “Design for Future” and member of the National Academy of Science and Engineering (acatech).
