SimPlan AG and its cooperation partners were among the prize winners for their research project “AssistSim” at the 5th Hessian Cooperation Prize of the TechnologieTransferNetzwerk Hessen, which was handed over by State Minister Dieter Posch during the Hessian Transfer Forum last week. The award honors projects created by an exemplary and successful collaboration between industry and science.
The project AssistSim was co-organized by Incontrol Enterprise Dynamics GmbH, UST Umweltsensortechnik GmbH, VDA Task Force Simulation, and the University of Kassel (Department of Production Organizations and Factory Planning) and Goethe University Frankfurt am Main (Professorship Business informatics and simulation).
Mr. Posch, minister of economy, emphasized the innovative power of the excellent initiatives and the crucial importance of the close co-operation of Hesse’s long-term competitiveness. “The first and second prize winners come from the optical industry and IT – both of them future technologies and key industries for Hesse,” says Posch. The goal of the project AssistSim was the development of methods and software components for the systematic support of the simulation of logistical processes in the automotive sector. The to be developed components are intended to provide assistance for the planning and execution of simulation experiments. “AssistSim can be used for all companies that use simulation: from large companies to small and medium-sized enterprises. This assessment is confirmed by the evaluation within the framework of the project – in particular also by the members of the VDA,” explained SimPlan Member of the Board of Dr. Sven Spieckermann.
The result of the very productive and good cooperation of the partners is also an AssistSim follow-up project: by implementing EDASimsoll a further increase in efficiency and quality can be achieved.
AssistSim was funded by the state of Hesse and the European Union.
