Abstract: In our software department, we develop operating and monitoring systems that offer a large portfolio from machine-level visualization to data monitoring and control. However, our intelligent response to increasingly complex processes and systems also entails a number of challenges. However, these cannot always be overcome with ease. In this presentation you will learn how significant improvements can be achieved using simple self-assessments with team interviews.

Speaker: I have studied computer science at the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg (1990) and my main focus was programming languages and their compilers. After graduating, I worked for SIEMENS first as a software developer and then as a manager in various roles (system architect, subproject manager, project manager, department head, R&D lead) at different locations (Erlangen, Karlsruhe, Nuremberg, Fürth, Johnson City / USA and Vienna) for various software development departments of the automation technology sector. Within automation technology, I have been responsible for the software development environment of factory automation as well for process control automation. In addition, I was involved in continuous process and quality improvement projects of the organization.
