Michael Lütjen studied Industrial Engineering at the Wilhelmshaven University of Applied Sciences with a focus on “Simulation and Optimization in Production”. He subsequently completed the degree program “Production Engineering” with a focus on “Industrial Engineering” at the University of Bremen. Since 2005, Mr. Lütjen has been working as a research associate at the Bremen Institute for Production and Logistics (BIBA) at the University of Bremen in the research area Intelligent Production and Logistics Systems (IPS). From 2006 to 2009, Mr. Lütjen was also employed part-time as a production planner at CTC GmbH in Stade with a focus on integrated product and process development. In 2014, Mr. Lütjen completed his doctorate at the University of Bremen on the topic of “Modeling concept for integrated planning and simulation of production scenarios developed by the example of CFRP series production”. Currently, Mr. Lütjen heads the department “Data Analytics and Process Optimization” and is especially dedicated to the innovation support of small and medium-sized enterprises.
Michael Lütjen’s research focuses on the identification of AI potentials for production and logistics as well as the application and further development of corresponding AI-based processes with regard to quality assurance, augmented reality, process optimization, and production and logistics control. In addition, he conducts basic research in the area of intelligent model creation, transformation, verification and evaluation with regard to production and logistics systems.
