Welcome to the Institute for Information Management in Engineering

 

The innovative art of thinking for efficient solutions in Engineering

The effective and efficient management of information throughout engineering processes is of essential importance for the economical sucess. The Institute for Information Management in Engineering supports enterprises by providing innovative and practical IT-solutions and methodologies. Thus ensuring  successful and sustainable competitive advantage in research and industry.

Our research fields Process Management (PM), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Smart Immersive Environments (SIE) and Digital Twin (DT) complement one another towards a holistic approach for intergrating process- and system information in an unified product knowledge model.

The novel Center for Artificial Intelligence Talents (CAIT) offers a platform for  interdisciplinary research at KIT and a framework for technology transfer into industry. Our field of expertise is enhanced by our research group for Process and Datamanagement in Engineering (PDE) at the Research Center for Information Technologies (FZI).

 

CAD training with tradition

For more than 10 years, CAD courses have been offered at the IMI (until 2003 RPK) as part of the engineering training at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. Between the lecture-times, two of the latest CAD systems are currently being offered with CATIA V6 and Siemens NX11 courses, which are becoming increasingly popular. In addition, SolidWorks 2016 is used in several lectures.

In two pool rooms with state-of-the-art workstations, the students have the opportunity to gain knowledge about these programs, which they can access in their later professional life.

Award certificate for RegioMORE handed over

The presentation of the RegioWIN award certificates took place at TechnologieRegion Karlsruhe GmbH on 07.10.2021. Dr. Arndt Oschmann, Head of the Department "Control ERDF - European Regional Development Fund" in the Ministry of Economics, Labour and Tourism Baden-Württemberg, came to Karlsruhe in person.

With the award-winning and funded project "RegioMORE", a real novelty is being created in Bühl: a "Digital Ecosystem" in which the regional strengths in the areas of digitalisation, (e-)mobility and resource efficiency as well as skilled labour development, citizen participation, and securing the location and the future will flourish sustainably. "Digitalisation should be lived," emphasised Prof. Jivka Ovtcharova, co-initiator of the project.
