The workshop ?Engineering Design? presented and discussed current research results in mechatronic product development, use of model-based system description languages, model reduction methods, and methods for testing model consistency.
Prof. W. Ernst Eder of the Royal Military College of Canada held the plenary lecture on ?Engineering Design vs. Artistic Design: an extended discussion? for an audience of about 40. Eder is one of the most renowned experts in engineering design and design science. He has published several much-cited books, e.g., Introduction to Design Engineering (2010). During his four-day stay at ACCM, he made numerous contacts with professors, assistants and students and shared valuable stimuli from his many years of experience and also enjoyed interesting insights into selected research areas at ACCM.
Prof. Eder visited ACCM on invitation of o.Univ.-Prof. Dr. Klaus Zeman, coordinator of the area Computational and Experimental Process Modeling and Simulation at ACCM and head of the Institute for Computer-Aided Methods in Mechanical Engineering at JKU.
