MOSCOW, November 7. /TASS/. A thesis by a Skoltech Space Center Ph.D. student Dominik Knoll and his supervisor Professor Alessandro Golkar has been chosen as one of the Top 10 papers at the SECESA 2016 conference of the European Space Agency and has been selected for publishing in a special issue of the SAGE Concurrent Engineering Journal devoted to parallel engineering, Skoltech’s press service reported.
Dominik Knoll: "My research is focused on the concurrent engineering techniques which is a very effective way to develop complex systems. For example, when you build a spacecraft you first should be sure that it is a feasible concept before you decide to shell out billions of dollars on it. Concurrent engineering helps to put all disciplines together and in a clever way debate whether it is feasible or not."
"In my paper, I explore how to organize this work. Nobody has addressed this issue in such detail so far. Additionally, I have presented a self-developed software for facilitating concurrent design. Currently, we use it only internally in our laboratory, but it has potential to become a commercial product," the young researcher stressed.
SECESA: The Systems Engineering and Concurrent Engineering for Space Applications conference was first organized in 2008. The Conference is designed to foster the exchange of ideas, experiences, and future trends in the area of Systems and Concurrent Engineering (SE&CE) for agencies, companies, universities, and institutes involved in space and related activities. It is held on a biannual basis, organized by the European Space Agency and hosted by different European Universities.
