Alexandra Mazak

Projektass. Dipl.-Ing. Mag.rer.soc.oec. Dr.techn.

Alexandra Mazak studied Data Engineering & Statistics, Business Engineering and Computer Science as well as Computer Management at the Vienna University of Technology. Her doctoral thesis, focusing on the research fields of Ontology Engineering and Ontology Alignment, was funded by the FFG program FEMtech based on her work in the projects FINCA (Female Intrapreneurship Career Academy) and FAMOS (Female Academy for Mentoring, Opportunities and Self-Development). Prior to her scientific career, she gained 16 years of experience as an entrepreneur in the field of IT development and database marketing. Before starting to work as a postdoctoral researcher at BIG, she headed the first Junior Studio CoE of the Research Studios Austria Forschungsgesellschaft mbH (RSA FG) concentrating on the interdisciplinary research area of Cognitive Engineering. At BIG, she has participated in several national and international research projects: REAlist (a multitenant ERP system in the cloud based on the core concepts of the REA Ontology), ARTIST (Advanced software-based seRvice provisioning and migraTIon of legacy SofTware), MetaMoV (Metainformation im modellbasierten Variantenmanagement). Currently, she is leading the exploratory project InteGra 4.0 focusing on a horizontal and vertical information integration based on industry standards in the context of Industry 4.0.

Mandantenfähiges ERP System in der Cloud: Ein modellgetriebener Ansatz auf Basis der Resource-Event-Agent Ontologie

Topic Cloud Computing führte in den letzten fünf Jahren zu einem Paradigmenwechsel in der IT-Branche. Über die Cloud werden Rechenkapazität, Datenspeicher, Netzwerkkapazitäten oder auch fertige Software zur Verfügung gestellt. In diesem Projekt adressieren wir die letztere Variante von cloud-basierten Lösungen, welche auch als Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) bekannt ist.

Metainformation im modellbasierten Variantenmanagement

Topic Das Forschungsvorhaben umfasst eine Konzeptentwicklung, sowie die Leistung von Vorabeiten für ein prototypisches Entwicklungsvorhaben, mit dem Ziel technologische und ökonomische Aspekte im modellbasierten Variantenmanagement aufzuzeigen. Dabei sollen neben dem modellbasierten Variantenmanagement auch die Validierung von Varianten und die Annotation von Metainformationen (Gewicht, Stromverbrauch, Kosten) in Modellvarianten untersucht, sowie erste Ideen für eine technologische Umsetzung des erkannten Potenzials skizziert werden.
