a) Autonomous Driving
c) Big Data
d) Cyber Security
Cultural and Ethical aspects of electrified and autonomous driving were shown as future main considerations in governmental activities as well as for the development of software algorithms.
The sensoric concepts of autonomous vehicles are currently very much different between the existing prototype applications all over the world and it seems appropriate to consider a maximal diversified approach in order to mimick human sensoric.
Each industrial equipment nowadays provides a huge amount of data during installation and operation. Therefore strategies and tools to use these big data amounts are required and methods for analytics were presented. Nevertheless the more data are generated and apt to communication and distribution the more vulnerabilities arise in the IT and in the general manufacturing arena.
Risk and threat analysis were discussed in workshops and panel discussion were held to consider Cyber Security aspects. Not only IT-based Security risks in Cloud Applications and Digital Manufacturing Systems are of concern, but in the scope of an obviously required – but not yet established – Security Culture in OEMs and Suppliers a Security Lifecycle needs to consider also Physical Security, Product Security and Process Security. Dr. Joachim Leder presented an overview of Cyber Security in Manufacturing with all relevant topics and the necessary activities among affected parties.

In the course of the conference with about 140 participants there were 5 workshops executed dealing mainly with Agile basic concepts and 14 presentations were shown.
As well OEMs as suppliers/consultants were able to show details of latest applications of Agile Concepts to development processes. Suppliers/consultants focused on availabe tools and capabilities.
Main considerations focused on
a) challenges in the starting phase,
b) management of risks and roadblocks during execution and finally
c) achievements and lessons learned.
Among challenges the foremost mentioned were “top management as main initiator”, “drive team with direct top management access” and “early consideration of all relevant areas of the company”
Risks and roadblocks arouse from the necessity to adopt the generic agile principles to reality. Different approaches depending on the size of the affected development teams and the availale resources were openly discussed.
Some tremendous achievements could be shown which ranged from the application of moderately modified principles in smaller or midsize organizations up to the full-scale application of principles to a complete vehicle development area.
