Interested to join?
Please register using the form below.
The ITEA innovation project IDEaliSM is organizing a project symposium and innovation market to show recent advances in engineering services and multi-disciplinary design optimization. It is the perfect event to learn all about the state-of-the-art in engineering services, automation of simulation workflows and optimization within multidisciplinary design teams.
The service-oriented process methodology developed in IDEaliSM consists of tools and methods enabling the integration of companies’ legacy processes throughout complete value chain; from original equipment manufacturers to tier 1 and 2 suppliers. The presented engineering capabilities thereby enable companies in high-tech engineering to capitalize their corporate design knowledge and allow for significant cost or time-to-market reductions in the design of product families.
Presentations will focus on next generation of engineering workflows for CAD/CAE and PLM and standards interoperability using IT standards like UML/XML and ISO 10303 (STEP). The practical use cases guiding the event represent actual industrial challenges ranging from the design of aerospace vehicles to automotive cockpit design.
(chief) technology officers, vice-presidents and directors of engineering, managers (IT, PLM, ILS, CAD, ERP, MRP), system integrators, supervisors and others with an interest in the deploying the next generation of engineering capabilities.
To develop an understanding on promising novel concepts for integrating and effectively re-using knowledge within engineering intense organizations in the high-tech industry.

Stefan van der Elst, KE-Works
Mr. Stefan van der Elst, is managing director at KE-works BV and has a MSc degree in Aerospace Engineering. He has a passion for operational excellence and high-performance software solutions in the design and manufacturing industry. In 2008 he co-founded KE-works and has over 10 years of experience in the development and implementation of engineering applications in aerospace, automotive and construction and infra industries. Within the IDEALISM project Stefan is responsible for the overall coordination of the project.
Cloudification of simulation workflows in MDO
Mr. Roberto d’Ippolito, is the Research and Innovation manager for Noesis Solutions N.V. . He acquired his M.Sc. degree in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Naples (Italy) and holds a solid background knowledge on a number of topics, ranging from material science (production processes, manufacturability, material modeling etc.) to ICT (Cloud, Web technologies, collaboration approaches etc.) and mechanical engineering (CAE, CAD, decision support systems and optimization) as well as experience with marketing, dissemination, planning of post-project trajectories, resource and risk management. He’s currently managing new research and innovation programs and projects in international, industrial, multi-disciplinary and multi-site partnerships. Key research topics involve product design and optimization in automotive and aerospace, modeling and simulation, information and communication technology for engineering and manufacturing, with particular focus on both product and product development process (PDP) improvements (design optimization and robust design optimization).
Standards for data exchange, sharing & archiving
Mr. Kjell A. Bengtsson, is a Vice President in Jotne, has a Mechanical Engineering background and a diploma in Marketing. He started out at Volvo Car and General Electric doing CAD/DB applications and later management positions, and is now VP at Jotne EPM Technology, a world leader in PLCS/STEP/Express applications. Kjell has been exposed to the STEP, PLCS and other related (ISO TC84/SC4) standards for the last 25 years and is actively involved in neutral database implementation projects in the most complex defense and aerospace sector projects. Kjell is a Member of the Board of the PDES, Inc organization and supports other industry organizations like NIFRO, FSI, ASD and more.

Dr. Martin Motzer, DRÄXLMAIER Group
Dr. Martin Motzer is a consultant for product development at the DRÄXLMAIER Group, an automotive supplier for the premium segment. Martin obtained a German diploma and a PhD, both in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Stuttgart. During his doctoral studies Martin conducted research on the automation of aircraft cabin architecture design through design languages. He is interested in design process automation, object oriented modeling and programming, systems engineering as well as data integration. At DRÄXLMAIER, Martin is focusing on IT-systems and IT-processes in the automotive wire harness domain and the application of automation design techniques in the development of electrical harness systems. As a Certified Project Management Associate (IPMA) Martin is leading projects with internal and external partners.
Design Languages to create engineering services
Dr. Stephan Rudolph graduated in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Stuttgart during which he has been abroad at the Ecole Nationale Superieure de Constructions Aeronautiques (ENSICA) in Toulouse, France, and at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, USA. After receiving his PhD from Stuttgart University on design evaluation, he was a Post Doc in the Systems and Design Group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Habilitated in the area of Engineering Design Methodology at Stuttgart University, Stephan is currently teaching courses on algorithms and data structures, design languages and digital engineering.
Stephan’s research interests include the search for a unified theory for design and practical design methods, applications of similarity theory to design as well as development of graph-based design languages for the computer-assisted exploration of complex and multi-disciplinary engineering systems such as satellites, cars and aircraft. Stephan’s publication list consists of more than 110 entries and a book.
State-of-the-art and future opportunities
Dr. Gianfranco La Rocca, holds a Master of Science degree in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Pisa, Italy and a PhD from Delft University of Technology in Delft, the Netherlands. He is Assistant Professor at the TU Delft Faculty of Aerospace Engineering, where he teaches courses on aircraft design and advanced design methods.
