CV for Gaby Neumann and Jochen Bernhard



Juniorprofessor Dr. Gaby Neumann


Gaby Neumann received a Diploma in Materials Handling Technology from the Otto-von-Guericke-University of Technology in Magdeburg and a PhD in Logistics from the University of Magdeburg. Between 1994 and 2002 she was Assistant Lecturer at the Institute of Materials Handling and Construction Machinery Technology, Steel Construction, Logistics of the University of Magdeburg. Since 2003 she has been Junior Professor in Logistics Knowledge Management. Since 1991 she has been also working as part-time consultant in logistics simulation. She is author/co-author of two books, one educational multimedia module on warehousing and a series of e-learning modules in logistics as well as of 26 journal publications and 61 papers and presentations at national and international conferences. Her current activities and research interests are mainly linked to fields like problem solving and knowledge management in logistics, logistics simulation and planning, and especially technology-based logistics learning, didactics of teaching logistics as well as logistics competence profiling and assessment. She organises or co-organises workshops and conferences in these fields, is involved in international programme committees of conferences in the field of simulation, co-ordinates the European logistics educators network for providing new technologies for logistics education inside the European Logistics Association (ELA-LogNet) and has been or is being involved in a couple of respective projects.


JOCHEN BERNHARD was born in 1970 and studied mechanical engineering at the University of Kassel. After his graduation he worked at the Volkswagen AG and became an employee at the Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics in 2001. Since May 2004 he has led the team Simulation Concepts and Tools. His main activities include the development and realization of concepts as well as the practical application of systems in simulation, planning and training. Emphases of his work are elaborating concepts for the coupling of simulation systems, the use of information visualization methods in simulation, collaborative engineering and internet-based learning. In addition to the development and management of national research and industry projects, he is an active member of the ASIM (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Simulation) group Simulation in Production and Logistics and the technical committee for Simulation and Visualization, a section of Committee A5 Modelling and Simulation of the Association of Engineers Society for Materials Handling, Materials Flow and Logistics Engineering (VDI-FML).
