The meeting planned on April 2 was cancelled due to the Covid-19 outbreak and we have now arranged an “online” meeting as a substitute until we can arrange meetings as usual. We hope that time will come soon.

And, our sincere apologies for the short notice term for this meeting, it was a result of availability of presenters and time zone alignment between Switzerland and Singapore.


10.00-10.45 “Vibration-based fault detection in CNC machines” presented by Dr. Farzam Farbiz

10.45-11.30 “Digital services in the mobility market: how to optimize value with co-creation” presented by Ruben Lorenzo

For registration, please send a message to or to and we will send you the MS TEAMS link to join the meeting.

Dr. Farzam Farbiz is currently a senior scientist with the Department of Computing & Intelligence, Institute of High Performance Computing (IHPC), Agency for Science, Technology, and Research (A*STAR), Singapore ( His current research interest is on using physics-based AI to improve the performance of data-driven based machine learning models, and how these new models can be applied for and be benefited by manufacturing applications.

Ruben André Lorenzo is Head of Sales at Siemens Mobility Services. He has been with Siemens since 2009 and is responsible for developing innovative services with a focus on the digital service business.

These two presentations touch base on both “Analytics” and “Business case” areas of Smart Maintenance, hence this will be a very interesting meeting!
