Dr.-Ing. habil. Bernd Prüger,
born in 1948, is the founder and owner of DR. BERND PRÜEGER EQUIPMENT
ENGINEERING located in Langewiesen, Thuringia. This company, founded in 1991, specializes
in offering products and services within the field known as DIALOG-PRODUCTION.
This field involves equipment development which renounces exact documentation
and instead uses a constructive dialog with the customer from the first
instance. This saves a lot of design effort and technical preparation while
resulting in optimization during the product development process. Additionally,
the company deals with the production and distribution of weapons for sport and
hunting. Special products in this area include optoelectronic simulators for
shooting which allow for the substitution of real sharp shooting by using a
simulator. In this way the safety-engineering and the ecological conditions
during the training of shooters will be improved.
Prüger studied at the Ilmenau Technical University and graduated as a Diploma
Engineer in the field of production engineering and production control. In 1975
he received a PHD (German Dr.-Ing.) for work in the field of applying
mathematical-statistical methods in controlling production.
1982 to 1990 Dr. Prüger worked in Industry as a scientist. During this time he
developed various technical products and equipment and obtained numerous
patents in the field of technical equipment production.
1989 Dr. Prüger received a post-Doctorate degree in technical sciences by
presenting a dissertation on the concept and design of an optoelectronic
simulator for shooting by using discrete sensors as an alternative to the sharp
from hunting, Dr. Prüger is particular interested in problems relating to the
protection of the environment and nature. He is a beekeeper out of passion and
conviction and offers the extraordinary course "Management with Bees".
Prüger has also written books, authored numerous papers and has given many
lectures on the problems associated with this subject.
