On November 13, 2019, the ISPE KIT Student Chapter was invited to Rockwell Automation in Karlsruhe-Durlach to participate in a technical lecture and workshop for one afternoon.
Harald Hermann (Strategic Account Manager) opened the program with his colleague Michael Warstat (Delivery & Operations) in a round of company introductions.
Rockwell Automation is a provider of automation and information solutions for industrial production with 23,000 employees worldwide.
In the course of digitalization, Rockwell Automation has specialized, among other things, in providing software for process mapping and control, but also for cybersecurity for pharmaceutical companies. In addition to Roche and Lonza, Pfizer is also one of Rockwell Automation’s largest customers at the Karlsruhe site.
In the further course of the presentation, the various work areas represented in Karlsruhe (Sales, Pre-Sales, Delivery, …) were examined in more detail. The Expert Speech was more of an open discussion between the speaker and us participants, in which all questions from the audience were answered and discussed. The answers were always described with illustrative examples from industry.
