Dr.-Ing. Thies Beinke

Research Scientist of the IPS department Robotics and Automation

Curriculum vitae

Dr.-Ing. Thies Beinke studied industrial engineering (Dipl.-Wirt.-Ing.) at the universities of Rostock and Bremen, where he focused on logistics and production, product development and production development. He also studied Business Process and Supply Chain Management (M.Sc.) at Växjö University (Sweden) and completed his studies in 2010. In 2010, he began to work as a research assistant at the Bremen Institute for Production and Logistics (BIBA). During this time, he worked and led numerous R&D projects (application-oriented research and industrial contract research) in the fields of logistics, production and automation technology in the sector of aerospace, steel industry, plant construction in general and with a specific focus on the wind energy sector. In December 2018, Dr. Beinke defended his dissertation entitled: Cooperative Construction of Offshore Wind Energy - Conceptual Development of a Supply Chain and Cross-Project Collaborative Logistics Design. Since 2018 Dr. Beinke has been head of the robotics and automation department. In addition to his work at BIBA, Beinke is a lecturer in the area of engineering design in adult education.

Research interest

  • Technical Logistics Systems and Industrial Artificial Intelligence
  • Industry 4.0, cyber-physical production and logistics systems
  • Logistics, Supply Chain Management, Resource Sharing
