Japanese representative manufacturers such as automotive, commercial electric/electronic, and die industries are facing future challenges for further reduction of product development time and better control of quality/time/cost of product development at world distributed factories. It is understood that higher level use of IT systems is indispensable for solving these issues. But, it is well recognized that continuous improvement of currently available digital engineering systems may not sufficiently contribute to the resolution of these issues. Therefore, new innovative approaches must be taken, but we do not have clear visions for the future digital engineering systems.
RCAST sponsors a symposium so as to provide opportunity for engineers and researchers from companies and from universities to share the problems and to think about the future digital engineering systems. Seminars will be given by invited speakers representing automobile industries and research communities in Europe and Japan. Based on these seminars, discussions will be made for the vision of the future digital engineering. It is also aimed at to promote collaborative research and development between companies and universities.
Date & Time:
March 20th, 2006. From 13:00 to 17:30
