Under the chair of the President of CIRP, Professor Tönshoff, Members of CIRP and experts discussed the relevance of natural sciences to production engineering. Natural sciences are traditionally the fundamentals of production engineering research and education. Physics, chemistry, mathematics and, in some cases, even biology have found basic regularities which help to model and understand basic processes or production and lead to a revolutionary development of this industrial century. Production engineering on the other hand is experimental and practice-oriented with its common understanding to reproduce technical processes under the specific conditions of practice. Production engineering and technical discoveries even stimulate the natural sciences. But there seems to be a gap between the research in natural sciences and in production engineering, which has to be closed for the future development and for finding solutions of the problems of future manufacturing.
