16 juni Webinar - SE challenges in the high tech equipment industry

The presentation will be given by Wouter Leibbrandt of ESI.

Over the past decades, the digitalization of high tech systems has had strong impact on the complexity of these systems, leading among others to model based engineering as indispensable to cope with the complexity of systems. Initially this was aimed at optimally designing products with a focus on performance engineering. Over time life-time costs, reliability, configurability and integration into context in order create complete solutions has broadened the scope to a broad range of system aspects, and a move from focus on design to engineering over the total lifecycle. As a result, Systems Engineering is key for the success of the high tech equipment industry, and therefore for a large part of the Dutch economy. In this talk we will address the challenges of the high tech equipment industry and what systems engineering means here in practice, giving several concrete industry examples.

Wouter Leibbrandt is Science and Operations Director of ESI, an industry and academia sponsored research center hosted by TNO. ESI focusses on the development of novel methodologies, often model-based, for design and engineering of increasingly complex high-tech (embedded) systems. It does so in strong partnership and close collaboration with leading high-tech equipment companies such as ASML, Philips, Thales, NXP, Canon PP, Thermo-Fisher and Nexperia as well as with leading academic groups in the Netherlands and across Europe and the USA. Themes are: digital twin, big data in high-tech systems, impact of AI and systems of systems.
Before joining ESI in 2016 Wouter was with NXP Semiconductors for 10 years, where he managed the Advanced Applications Lab, investigating new application concepts around future advanced silicon products, driving secure connections for a smarter world.
Before joining NXP, he was with Philips Research labs for 14 years, managing a variety of projects and departments. From 2004 to 2006 he lived and worked in China, at the Philips Research labs in Shanghai.
He serves in advisory roles to several academic departments and curricula and is on the steering board of the European ARTEMIS Industry Association.
Wouter holds a PhD in physics from Utrecht University.
