From Industrial Engineering towards Industrial Data Science
Speaker: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jochen Deuse, Head of the Institute of Production Systems (IPS), TU Dortmund University
The challenges and requirements an industrial engineer has to face in his daily busi- ness have significantly changed in the context of Industry 4.0. While the core tasks of the Industrial Engineer are rooted domain specifically in work and motion studies and work system design, his methodological spectrum is increasingly changing from using basic descriptive statistics towards digital manufacturing, factory physics, and machine learning.
Prof. Dr.-Ing, Jochen Deuse
Head of the Institute of Production Systems (IPS), TU Dortmund University
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jochen Deuse, born in 1967, studied Mechanical Engineering at Dortmund University, Germany, and Manufacturing Technology at the University of Limerick, Ireland. Afterwards he gained his doctorate in engineering (Dr.-Ing.) at the Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering (WZL) at RWTH Aachen University, Germany. Throughout his career, he held senior management positions in the Bosch Group in Germany and Australia, before joining the Technical University of Dortmund, Germany, to become head of the chair of Industrial Engi- neering in 2005. In 2012 the chair of Industrial Engineering and the chair of Industri- al Robotics and Production Automation merged to form the Institute of Production Systems (IPS) under the direction of Prof. Deuse. Prof. Deuse is also a member of several scientific networks and research associations and a member of the board at the industry network NIRO e.V.
