Working Committee Simulation Methods
Numerous participants of different branches, from car manufacturing up to software development, appeared to the first working meeting. At the beginning Prof. Mitschang (IPVS), Prof. Leymann (IAAS), Prof. Ertl (VIS) and Prof. M. Resch (HLRS), Principal Investigators in the Cluster of Excellence SimTech, gave introductury talks to their fields and answered questions with direct content relation. Then Dr. Dr. Wechsler introduced into the results of the survey which has preceded the meeting. The primary interests derived from it were used as an introduction to the following inspiring discussion.
Finally, Dr.-Ing. Volker from the Robert Bosch GmbH posted the question "Quo vadis SimTech?". Together with Prof. Dr. Munz he illustrated his ideas for cooperation models and projects in SimTech which were focussed in the subsequent discussion intensively. The participants came to an agreement to develop a common roadmap.
