For their research project “AssistSim”, SimPlan AG and its cooperation partners were one of the winners of the 5th Hessian Cooperation Award of the TechnologyTransferNetwork Hessen, which was presented last week by Minister of State Dieter Posch during the Hessian Transfer Forum.
The award honors projects that have been created through exemplary and successful cooperation between business and science. The AssistSim project was developed in about 18 months of work and research by consortium leader SimPlan together with Incontrol Enterprise Dynamics GmbH, UST Umweltsensortechnik GmbH, the VDA working group Process Simulation as well as the University of Kassel (Department of Production Organization and Factory Planning) and the Goethe University Frankfurt am Main (Chair of Business Informatics and Simulation).
Economics Minister Posch emphasized the innovative strength of the award-winning initiatives and the crucial importance of the close cooperation of for the long-term competitiveness of Hesse. “The first and second prize winners come from the optical industry and IT – both future technologies and key industries for Hessen,” Posch said.
The objective of the AssistSim project was to develop methods and software components to systematically support the simulation of logistical processes in the automotive sector. The components to be developed are intended to provide assistance for the planning and execution of simulation experiments. “Usable is AssistSim for all companies that use simulation: from large enterprises to small and medium-sized companies. This assessment is confirmed by the evaluation within the project – especially also by the members of the VDA”, explained SimPlan board member Dr. Sven Spieckermann.
The result of the very productive and good cooperation between the cooperation partners is also an AssistSim follow-up project: through EDASim, a further increase in efficiency and quality is to be achieved in the execution of simulations.
