Block Week on Project Management at KU Leuven 2017

September 18, 2017 - September 22, 2017

During this Block Week students from FH Dortmund and KU Leuven worked together on the topic of digitalization in the aircraft industry.
On the first day, the topic was presented to the students at the Siemens facilities and the following tasks were given to be solved during the week:

  1. What is the impact of the digital transformation on the cost structure of an airplane?
  2. How will the digital transformation change the value structure of an airplane?
  3. How will the development process of airplanes be changed by digital transformation?
  4. What impact does the software development have on the entire development process?

The students attended lectures in which teamwork and team dynamics, processes in software development and software cost analysis, as well as general business models and business models focused on Software Industry were discussed. Within this context, the students worked in four groups on the four topics given. During the week, they received feedback from representatives of Siemens, which was taken into account for the further work. On the last day, the final results were officially presented to Siemens. The event received a positive feedback from students as well as professors. Siemens offered the possibility for students to do an internship at their company.
