Visiting the Oberhausen inter-company training centre

As part of the “Pilot project for a research and education center for construction processes and construction machinery in the Rhine Revier”, IP and ifas employees visited the Oberhausen intercompany training centre of the Bauindustrieverband NRW at the beginning of December. The aim of the project meeting was to get a look at the most modern construction machinery simulators that are operated there for training purposes. Also a teaching concept for digital construction processes was discussed, which is to be implemented and evaluated in 2021 at the reference construction site Campus West in test courses with students from ABZ Kerpen. The students were already involved in finding suitable teaching content through an online survey.

Pilot project for a research and education center for construction processes and construction machinery in the Rhine Revier

From left to right: Univ.-Prof. Dr.-techn. Brell-Cokcan (IP), Prof. Beate Wiemann (Bauindustrieverband NRW), Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Katharina Schmitz (ifas)

Joint research project succesfully started. Since the beginning of August 2020, the Chair of Individualized Production (IP) and the Institute for Fluid Power Drives and Systems (ifas) have been working together on the planning and installation of construction machine demonstrators and test areas for machine operation on the reference construction site Campus West. This creates a basis for the real testing of developments for a digitalized construction site of the future. In cooperation with the Bauindustrieverband NRW, a further education center will also be set up on the reference construction site, where courses on digital construction processes will be rolled out for construction companies in the region. The project is funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) as part of the federal model project “Unternehmen Revier”.
