Technical-XII Meeting (OPT – Bucharest, Romania)

From 21st – 23rd January 2014 the 12th Technical Meeting took place in Bucharest, Romania. It was hosted by Opto Electronica.

The meeting included the demonstration of the latest version of the DfA-tool including continuous improvements.

Another topic of the meeting was the discussion of the AMISA Methodology Guideline which gives a detailed overview about the AMISA project and the AMISA Design-for-Adaptability methodology including the DfA-Tool.

 

 

 

 

TUM also presented the AMISA objective evaluation results. The following summarizes this presentation:
