Head of Development Robotic Kinematics, Festo SE & Co. KG
After studying mechatronics at the technical university of Ilmenau I started my working career in the customer specific development at Festo.
Through gaining experience and within the transformation of Festo from component to solution supplier I developed myself towards systems engineering for international key-account projects.
My actual home is the robotics development where I have the disciplinary responsibility for the kinematics team and act as Product Owner for the mechatronics agile team.
So far I don’t know any other topic next to robotics which combines that much competencies and disciplines. The work with a lot of very different people at a common target is inspiring, exhausting, motivating and for sure a lot of fun. The efficient combination from ALM including requirements engineering to PDM throughout the fast iterations in an agile world are a key-must to me for shaping and sharpening the target.
All in all following the motto: “Success makes fun – fun generates success”
