Award for Event Discrete Simulation presented at 19th ASIM Symposium 2021
The Arbeitsgemeinschaft Simulation (ASIM) again awarded outstanding theses (diploma, master or bachelor) in the field of simulation in production and logistics on the occasion of the ASIM symposium “Simulation in Production and Logistics” from September 15-17, 2021.
As in 2019, the Discrete Event Simulation Award was sponsored by SimPlan and Incontrol and is endowed with €1,000. This year, the prize went to Christina Gschwendtner from TU Munich. We congratulate her very much on this success!
The conference was hosted and co-designed by the Chair of FAPS at FAU and the Business School at THI and this time took place purely virtually. As the largest European simulation conference for production and logistics, the ASIM symposium presents forward-looking trends and current developments, scientific papers and interesting applications in industry every two years. Discussions range from questions of resource efficiency and digitalization to virtual commissioning of the many aspects that arise when using simulation for the planning, commissioning and operation of factory and logistics systems.
The 71 selected papers, which were printed in the conference proceedings, were divided into 28 different thematic sessions, ranging from the topic of “discrete-event simulation” to optimization, use of ML and AI, and energy considerations of digital models and plants.
The prize for the best industrial contribution went to employees of Robert Bosch GmbH. The researchers of the chair FAPS around Tobias Lechler received an award for their paper titled “Use of discrete-event material flow simulation in methods from continuous improvement in the manufacturing environment: success and impact of Speedweek 4.0”. The prize for the best scientific paper was awarded to Leonard Overbeck from KIT for the paper “Continuous validation and updating for high realism of digital twins of production systems”.
