With the first international Smart Engineering conference at the FHM Bielefeld campus, which dealt with data evaluation in manufacturing companies and an intelligent design of the product life cycle, the Fachhochschule des Mittelstands (FHM) and its international partners officially concluded the project "Knowledge Alliance for Upskilling Europe's SMEs to Meet the Challenges of Smart Engineering". Altogether about 80 participants from eight countries took part in the conference.

Industry 4.0, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data Analysis & Co. - these and many more were the topics of the first international Smart Engineering Conference for SMEs last Tuesday at the FHM Bielefeld campus. The conference, during which various regional and European actors spoke and discussed about the status quo and the expected developments in the field of smart product development, also marked the conclusion of the EU-funded project "Knowledge Alliance for Upskilling Europe's SMEs to Meet the Challenges of Smart Engineering" (short: SmeART) led by Professor Dr. Manfred Leisenberg.

The event was led by Professor Dr. Christoph Brake, who is very familiar with the topic and is himself active in numerous FHM projects. Currently he is in charge of the scientific part of the project "Smart City Advanced Learning" (short: SCALe).

An other important part of the were the products developed in the project:

  • the study on required competencies in the field of smart product development
  • the compass with the most important points of contact for companies wishing to expand their activities in the field of Smart Engineering
  • the online tool for self-assessment of the level achieved by a company on its way to becoming a smart organisation
  • the handbook for organizational development
  • this learning and exchange platform for actors in the field of "Smart Engineering"
