I am an aerospace engineer with a passion for software engineering. I use my software engineering skills primarily to create solutions for other engineering domains such as the aerospace engineering domain. My focus lies mainly on software solutions to support collaborative engineering. This discipline is sometimes called Concurrent Design. I have been involved for the last ten years in designing space missions, satellites and software to support the design of these systems for organizations such as the European Space Agency (ESA), the German Aerospace Agency (DLR) as well as commercial companies such as Airbus DS and Thales.
Currently I am employed by RHEA as the Business Unit Manager of the System Engineering Methods and Tools business unit. I spend my time promoting System Engineering as well as developing applications with my team such as the Concurrent Design Platform (http://www.rheagroup.com/products/cdp/) as well as life cycle management tools for the Space Industry. I am also an active owner of the Concurrent Design group on linked-in https://www.linkedin.com/groups/3420542 where you can find some interesting posts and articles on Concurrent Design.
