Milan: Computer-Aided Innovation

| On 31, Oct 2008

Ellen Domb

Thanks to Gaetano Cascini and Noel Leon for getting us this abbreviated report on the  2nd IFIP Topical Session on Computer-Aided Innovation, presented in conjunction with the 20th IFIP World Computer Congress (September 7-10, 2008, Milan, IT – http://www.wcc2008.org ), and dedicated to the Integration of CAI systems in the Product Development cycle. IFIP, the International Federation for Information Processing, is a multinational apolitical organization in Information & Communications Technologies and Sciences, recognized by the United Nations; it represents IT Societies from more than 50 countries, covering all 5 continents. Working Group 5.4 deals with Computer-Aided Innovation, http://computeraidedinnovation.net.   Frequent TRIZ Journal readers will see that several of our frequent authors were participants and award winners for outstanding papers. 

35 papers were evaluated in a double-blind process.   Final program was as follows: 


-          A. ALBERS, N. LEON ROVIRA, H. AGUAYO, AND T. MAIER


Optimization with Genetic Algorithms and Splines as a way for Computer Aided Innovation: follow up of an example with crankshafts

The program was enriched by the Keynote speech by Prof. Noel Leon Rovira on “The future of Computer Aided Innovation” and by a roundtable on “The role of computers in Innovation-related activities” (moderator: Gaetano Cascini):


– establishing the differences between innovation, invention and optimization (Roland De Guio);


– identifying the requirements for CAI systems (Rosario Vidal);


– how to integrate CAI systems in the Product Cycle (Noel Leon Rovira);


– how to link CAI tools with existing PLM systems (Marco Taisch);


– how to identify and create collaboration opportunities with other IFIP WGs (Open debate).

The BEST Paper Awards went to
