Daniel Rippel

Research Scientist in the IPS department Data Analytics and Process Optimization

Curriculum vitae

Mr. Rippel studied computer sciences at the University of Bremen. He focused on the areas of artificial intelligence, cognitive systems as well as soft computing. During his diploma thesis at the Collaborative Research Center: Cognitive Systems (TR/8) he dealt with an analysis of measures of uncertainty for the Dempster-Shafer evidence theory.

Mr. Rippel is a research scientist at the BIBA - Bremer Institut für Produktion und Logistik GmbH since January 2009.

Research interest

  • Modelling and simulation of (autonomous) logistic processes
  • Model based process configuration
  • Methods to learn process models
  • Modeltransformation
  • Interoperability in non hierarchical supply networks


During his time at BIBA, Mr. Rippel participated in several research projects which focused on the development of methods for the design and configuration of processes in different areas.

The Subproject B2 „Adaptive Business Processes“, which was part of the Collaborative Research Center 637, funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), developed a method for the modeling and simulation of autonomous logistic processes. The Project CONVERGE, funded by the 7. Program of the European Commission, developed methods to support the interoperability of non-hierarchical supply networks, focusing on the product design process.

At the moment, Mr. Rippel works in the subproject C4 "Simultaneous Engineering", which is part of the Collaborative Research Center 747 “Micro Cold Forming”, funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). The project aims to develop methods for the design and configuration of manufacturing process chains in micro manufacturing, whereby it combines classical approaches for process modelling with machine learning techniques to provide a consistent method for both tasks.
