I was born in Austria in 1955 and after finishing may basic school education I studied mechanical engineering in an engineering high school which I finished with an engineers degree in 1975. Then I joined the Technical university in the city of Graz, Austria to study process engineering which I finished with a MSC degree in 1982. My professional career started with company Andritz also in Graz, Austria where I am still employeed. During my work at Andritz I have covered many positions as manager and head of R&D, sales, quality and service for machinery and plants for filtration and drying of various products in different applications from municipal- to chemical-, mining- up to biomass- and food industry. In may last roll within this now so called "Separation" Division my responsibility was the development of Smart Services in order to support many internal service processes. When this became a global initiative last year may appointment was changed and I became Manager of the Smart Service programm. Therefore I joined from there on the Andritz IT department in order to follow up this program on a global basis. First task was to develop a spare part catalog where we eventually have chosen Autodesk as partner for creating this catalog in a joint agile approach. Actually this task was performed in a record time meaning it took us 4 month until the MVP was ready and another 5 months to roll-out the spare part catalog for internal user testing and go-live for the day to day spare part business.
Product lifecycle management (PLM) projects involve many people with different competencies and goals for the project. Gathering relevant data about business processes can be one of the most difficult tasks for the consultant who's helping you build the system. You will learn what information is and is not important when preparing for a successful Fusion Lifecycle project. You will be provided with tips on how to see the end goal and understand the implementation process. You will receive the knowledge needed to be prepared before, during, and after the implementation from an implementer's stance, and from an end user through a customer case study. You will become knowledgeable about which data is valuable to prepare and provide to your consultant before and during implementation, and you'll then see these items related back to the functionality in PLM. In the end, you will know what you should seek to provide so that your consultant can deliver a Fusion Lifecycle solution that fits your business needs.
Albert Einstein said, "Any fool can know. The point is to understand." The intent of this class is to guide participants through the reporting capabilities of Fusion Lifecycle software. This class will not only demonstrate the capabilities of reporting in Fusion Lifecycle, it will also aid you in interpreting such reports and help you understand the decisions that can be made from such reports. The message to take away from this class is how to use Fusion Lifecycle as a catalyst to drive business decisions and ultimately business transformation. The class will be interactive with exercises.
The Bill of Materials (BoM) of your products are at the heart of everything you do in a PLM system, but a BoM is so much more than a simple list of components and subassemblies. Autodesk Fusion Lifecycle provides significant features and capabilities that improve the power and flexibility of what you can achieve with your BOMs. This class outlines those capabilities and shows you the value they can bring to your organization.
In this hands-on lab, we will walk you through our cloud data management solution, teach you how to automatically upload and update your data from the familiar work space on your desktop, and allow you to explore the wide range of functionality provided to you by the Autodesk cloud services. Come to this course to grab the wheel and take a spin through our cloud data management experience.
Your company uses Fusion Lifecycle software to collect and manage data, but there are so many hidden features, shortcuts, and ways to get things done. This class will provide you with more than 60 tips that you must know if you want to get the most out with Fusion Lifecycle. Get shortcuts for faster execution, automation, reporting, and more.
This class will introduce attendees to the Fusion Connect development platform. You will learn how to model a digital twin of your machine assets, and (using a little business logic, along with our point-and-click tools) you will learn how to build an Internet of Things application that turns your data into actionable events-visual status and graphs that you can capitalize on to collect operational feedback instantaneously from your customers and improve design, or build unique value business offerings based on your products. This session will feature Fusion Connect.
A hybrid cloud is a cloud-computing environment that uses a mix of applications on different infrastructures relying on orchestrated integration between the platforms. The infrastructures can be on-premise services; private cloud services; and third-party, public cloud services. This a legitimate option even if all the components are not pure cloud. Our Fusion Lifecycle implementations are typically hybrid cloud; we use Vault data management software (deployed as either on premise or private cloud) and Fusion Lifecycle software (pure cloud). These environments come with their own challenges. In this class, we'll discuss these challenges and provide recommendations on how to optimize these heterogeneous environments.
The class will aim to share relevant and transferable stories about cost-saving Fusion LifeCycle use cases as they relate to product management and internal operations.The class will focus on three areas: (1)Recognizing the overlooked losses in an organization - time; (2)How to transition from analog to digital management systems - the short term adversities and the long term payoff; and, (3)Using Fusion LifeCycle to promote positive culture change within your organization.
Get a better understanding of the power of Fusion Lifecycle software by taking a closer look at its genetic makeup. In this class, we'll take a deeper look into its various parts, including the skeletal system (workspaces); the nervous system (notifications); the muscular system (workflow); the digestive system (import/export); the dermal system (presentation layer); and the autonomic system (scripting).
Is your company ready for a connected products solution? Where are you on your connected product journey? Do you have some definition around what the Internet of Things can do for you and your business? Regardless of where you are in your journey, this class is designed to provide you with some real-world examples of what a successful connected-product business looks like, and how you can start to develop a business case for your own implementation. From identifying design improvements, postsales support, and spares management business, through to advanced system-monitoring services and products as a service, we will look to identify your potential return on investment and phased approaches to your ultimate goal. This session will feature the Fusion Connect development platform.
Fusion Lifecycle software produces lots and lots of very valuable data. This data is arguably more valuable when you use it to integrate with external systems (like reporting databases) and drive external applications. In this class, we'll explore techniques for inserting Fusion Lifecycle data into an on-premise SQL database, and for driving a C# application using Fusion Lifecycle data. If you want to create a real-time reporting solution, then this class is for you.
Fusion Lifecycle implementations can be performed in a number of different ways with varying degrees of success. Due to Fusion Lifecycle software's advantage of being highly configurable, companies can implement Fusion Lifecycle by going one process at a time ("land and expand"), or by taking the whole business process at once ("world domination"). During this class, learn how Advanced Solutions and BOA Technology utilized the "land and expand" method to make Fusion Lifecycle an integral part of the BOA business process. We'll walk through how BOA started with using Fusion Lifecycle to manage the firm's change management process ("land"), and how that quickly evolved into using Fusion Lifecycle to manage assets, problem reports, color samples, and issue tracking ("expand").
