Ghaidaa Shaabany studied machine technology at the Technical University of Dortmund. She attained in September 2014 her Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering. Her master's thesis deals with analysis and comparison of form-locking shaft connections as basis for the construction of an innovative coupling with front teeth in form of circular arc.

Ms. Shaabany joined in June 2015 her position as a research assistant and doctoral candidate at the Department of Computer Integrated Design (DiK) at the Technical University of Darmstadt.

In winter semester 2015/16, Ms. Shaabany provided assistance in organizing the course “A new security culture for Industrie 4.0”. She will supervise this course in winter semester 2016/17.

Topics: IT-Security, Safety, know-how protection.

IUNO – Nationales Referenzprojekt IT-Sicherheit in Industrie 4.0

The fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0) is distinguished by a growing networking and intelligence of machines, products and services. This results in new business models and value networks, but also various risks, e.g. by hacker attacks, data theft or manipulation. The use of effective security methods is to protect the industry 4.0 and its associated values. Therefore the project IUNO was requested, approved and funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). Within this project: Nationales Referenzprojekt IT-Sicherheit in Industrie 4.0, 14 industrial enterprises and seven research institutions develop and research extensive new security methods and tools.

The aim of the IUNO project is identifying and developing new, appropriate security practices for industry 4.0. Within the overall project, the subject group DiK explores the specific frame conditions and requirements of the industry 4.0 and develops models and specifications for an integrated and comprehensive security by design, secure devices and identities as well as methods for the effective protection against manipulation, knowledge theft and piracy models. It is the goal of the DiK to support the industrial partners by scientific method, so that proved viable security concepts in two demonstrators, “Technology Data Marketplace” and “Remote Maintenance”, can be implemented, which actually and sustainably accomplish the security requirements of the industry.

Mittelstand 4.0 – Kompetenzzentrum Darmstadt

Since Oktober 2018 Mrs. Shaabany works on the MiT4.0 – Competence Center Darmstadt for Small and Medium Enterprises. MiT4.0 with its learning factories at the TU Darmstadt provides small and medium sized enterprises a central platform for knowledge transfer and training modules. During the workshops, company representatives are directly informed about the potentials and challenges for the digitalization of their business processes. In addition, there are eight implementation projects offered for selected individual companies and numerous Industrie 4.0 research projects.

Under the umbrella of the MiT4.0, small and medium sized enterprises are offered following support:

  • Initial information about digital transformation, e.g. by demonstrators or by showing existing solutions
  • Training courses in the fields of action: “Efficient value-added process”, “Work & Labor 4.0”, “New business models”, “Energy management”, and “IT security”.
  • IHK certificate course “Train the Trainer 4.0” for business consultants, trainers in commerce chambers and associations
  • E-learning programs, workgroups, and conferences

Through diverse events and further training formats more than 3.000 people from company representatives, consultants, as well as labor union members should be reached during the project term.

Topics: Industry 4.0, IoT, Digitalization, Platfomisation, CAx-Processchain, Businessmodels

Mittelstand 4.0 – Kompetenzzentrum Darmstadt is part of the funding initiative “Mittelstand 4.0 – Digital Production and Work Processes”, which is funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) within the scope of the funding focus “Mittelstand Digital – Strategies for the Digital Transformation of Enterprise Processes”.
