Dr. Andreas Vlahinos to Keynote at CIMdata's Product & Manufacturing Innovation Workshop

CIMdata, Inc. announced that Dr. Andreas Vlahinos, Principal at Advanced Engineering Solutions, will make a keynote presentation at the upcoming Product & Manufacturing Innovation Driven by Digital Design & Simulation Workshop. The workshop will take place at the UI LABS Innovation Center, home to DMDII, in Chicago, Illinois, on June 6 and 7.

In his presentation, Computer-Aided Innovation Tools, Dr. Vlahinos will describe and demonstrate a practical set of computer-aided innovation tools that assist engineers and manufacturers in increasing their innovation skills.

These include:

  • Tools that use the "Theory of Inventive Problem Solving" (TRIZ) to generate innovative ideas for the most difficult engineering and manufacturing challenges.
  • A Mechanism Synthesis tool, that generates, in seconds, several concept mechanisms that follow a given path while its supports remain within a given domain.
  • Interactive Multi-Physics Topology Optimization tools that generate the optimum topology/shape of a component for a given structural, thermal, or fluid requirement.
  • Tools that generate Programmable Materials (meta-materials with predefined properties).


CIMdata's Product & Manufacturing Innovation Driven by Digital Design & Simulation workshop, is the must-attend event for industrial organizations and product development solution providers interested in learning about model-driven engineering strategies and solutions that will enable on-going product and manufacturing innovation to create competitive advantage, minimize total lifecycle costs, and drive top line revenue growth. It will provide attendees with independent experiences from industrial companies and a collaborative networking environment where ideas, trends, experiences, and critical relationships germinate and take root.

CIMdata's thought-leadership team of Don Tolle, Dr. Keith Meintjes, Dr. Ken Versprille, Dr. Suna Polat, and Frank Popielas, will be on hand to facilitate the workshop and associated discussions.

Dr. Vlahinos has been instrumental in rapid product development through the implementation of CAE and DFSS for several Government agencies and industry partners. He received his Ph.D. from Georgia Institute of Technology. He has been Professor at the University of Colorado and has received the Professor of the Year and R&D 100 awards. He is regularly invited as to make keynote presentations at international conferences on a variety of subjects including innovation, rapid new product development, DFSS, and IoT.
