Since March 2019, Manuel Wimmer is Full Professor and Head of the Department of Business Informatics – Software Engineering at JKU Linz, Austria.
Manuel Wimmer was assistant professor at the Business Informatics Group (BIG), TU Wien, Austria. He received his Ms and PhD degrees in business informatics from the TU Wien in 2005 and 2008, respectively. He is one of the prize winners of the Award of Excellence 2008 assigned by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science and Research for his PhD thesis. In 2014, he received his Habilitation (venia docendi) in Informatics from the Vienna University of Technology.
In 2016 he was an August-Wilhelm Scheer Visiting Professor in the Institute of Automation and Information Systems (AIS) at Technische Universität München, Germany. In 2015 he was guest professor in the Software Engineering Research Group at the Philipps-University Marburg, Germany. In 2011/2012 he was on leave as research associate at the University of Málaga (working with Prof. Antonio Vallecillo). He was funded by an Erwin Schrödinger scholarship granted by the Austrian FWF (Fonds zur Förderung der Wissenschaftlichen Forschung).
He is/was involved in several national and international projects dealing with the foundations and application of model engineering techniques for domains such as tool interoperability, legacy modeling tool modernization, model versioning and evolution, software reverse engineering and migration, Web engineering including social Web and semantic Web, and Cloud computing. More information on these projects can be found here.
Currently, he is leading the Christian Doppler Laboratoy on Model-Integrated Smart Production (CDL-MINT) which is running from 2017 to 2023. In this context, he is developing modeling approaches for smart production facilities, as well as techniques for the continuous evolution of such models based on production information gathered at runtime. He is also a founding member of the EU COST Action Multi-Paradigm Modeling for Cyber-Physical Systems (MPM4CPS) and the representative of TU Wien within the AutomationML society. Furthermore, he is participating in the NFR4MDD project, a multi-national empirical study on the integration status of Non-Functional Requirements (NFR) in Model-Driven Development (MDD) practices.
He is coauthor of the book Model-driven Software Engineering in Practice (Morgan & Claypool, 2012).
Das Ziel des Projektes ist es, ein Konzept zur partiellen Aktualisierung von QML (Qt Modeling Language) Programmen zur Laufzeit auszuarbeiten, welches es ermöglicht, QML Programminstanzen während der Laufzeit entsprechend der Programmänderungen zu aktualisieren.
Model transformations play an important role in software engineering in general and in the area of model-driven engineering in particular, representing the key mechanisms for model translations (e.g., translating an ER model into a UML class model), model augmentations (e.
Model transformations are crucial for the success of Model-Driven Engineering (MDE), comparable in role and importance to compilers for programming languages, allowing to transform models between languages and abstraction levels, e.
Social networks on the Web have seen enormous growth over the past few years reaching now truly widespread adoption. Since every social network is focused on serving specific human needs, social networkers are present in a number of different networks, leading to scattered social content.
In model-driven development models are considered as the key artifacts and, as a result, the success of the whole development process relies on these models and their quality. Consequently, there is an urgent need for adequate methods to ensure high quality of models.
Truly complex, designed systems, known as Cyber Physical Systems (CPS), are emerging that integrate physical, software, and network aspects. To date, no unifying theory nor systematic design methods, techniques and tools exist for such systems.
With the rise of model-driven software development, more and more development tasks are being performed on models. A rich variety of modeling tools is available supporting different tasks, such as model creation, model simulation, model checking, and code generation.
Model-Based Adaptation Engineering (MAE) in Automation Systems Engineering (ASE) (MAE4ASE) is a module of the Christian Doppler Laboratory on Software Engineering Integration for Flexible Automation Systems. It addresses the upcoming need of ASE to raise the level of flexibility of automation systems even further in order to better react to changing environments.

InteGra 4.0 focuses on the horizontal integration throughout value chains as well as on the vertical integration of networked production systems as identified by the German working committee for Industrie 4.
The Doctoral College „Cyber-Physical Production Systems“ aims at further positioning TU Wien with TUWin4.0 as the leading research institute in Austria in this domain and to help to position the university as one of the highest ranked European research institutes in this highly relevant area.
Qualifizierungsziel ist es, die Unternehmen in ihrer Gesamtheit in das Zeitalter von Industrie 4.0 zu führen. Dazu haben sich die Lehrenden fakultätsübergreifend vernetzt, um im Sinne einer Integration von Fachabteilung, Business-IT und Produktions-IT und zur Vernetzung sämtlicher Informationsströme entlang der Wertschöpfungskette unterrichten zu können.
The goal of the project COSIMO is to build up a portfolio configurator platform for leveraging tool integration for railway automation systems and, in general, for production systems at Siemens. The core of this framework comprehensively bases on model-driven concepts and semantic system’s techniques.
The main goal of DARWIN is to provide an extensible framework based on well-established conceptual modeling languages and model-driven engineering techniques enabling developers to entirely develop and evolve SIs at an appropriate level of abstraction.
The processes in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) and Facility Management (FM) industries are iterative – components are created, revised or discarded. There are many stakeholders with a multitude of domain-specific requirements and tools – for calculation, information visualisation and exchange, using a variety of standards (e.
Die industrienahe Dissertation CODA adressiert innovative, wichtige Forschungsfragen um aus den Laufzeitdaten (Betriebsdaten) und den Entwicklungszeitdaten (Konfigurationsdaten) einer Anlage Optimierungen für Betrieb und Systemkonfiguration abzuleiten. Die Resultate von CODA sind neue Methoden und Algorithmen vorwiegend aus dem Bereich Data Analytics, die anhand von realen Daten aus dem Anwendungsgebiet Bahnautomatisierung evaluiert werden.
Production systems are becoming more and more software-intensive, thus turning into cyber-physical production systems (CPPS). This is also highlighted and reflected by Industrie 4.0, which is seen as the next industrial revolution.
Successful software has to evolve to keep it compatible and up to date. Up to 90% of software cost is spent on maintenance and of this 75% is spent on the development of new features for staying competitive.
Domain-specific modeling languages are increasingly being developed to continuously leverage the domain-specific expertise of the various stakeholders involved in the development of complex software-intensive system as, for instance, found in the automation, production, and automotive domains.
The manufacturing processes of the future need to be highly flexible and dynamic in order to satisfy customer demands for, e.g., large series production, mass customization, or changing orders. The organisations are also changing and manufacturing companies are not only part of sequential, long-term supply chains, but also part of (potentially) extensive manufacturing networks which require agile collaboration between partners.
HybriDLUX entwickelt neuartige Techniken und Werkzeuge zur hybriden, kollaborativen Modellierung und zum modellbasierten Debugging in hybriden Modellen, zwei Techniken, die als kritisch für die Einführung von modellbasierter Softwareentwicklung identifiziert wurden. Diese Techniken und Werkzeuge werden außerdem speziell für domänenspezifische Softwaresprachen, die von AVL im Anwendungsgebiet der Fahrzeugmess- und – prüftechnik evaluiert werden, implementiert und anhand einer erweiterten und verbesserten Version des im vorangegangenen DLUX Projekts entwickelten Evaluierungsrahmenwerks hinsichtlich Benutzerfreundlichkeit evaluiert.
CPS/IoT Ecosystem is a joint initiative under „Hochschulraum-Strukturmittel (HRSM)“ national funding platform administered by Austrian Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy. Cyber-physical systems (CPS) is a concept that unifies all computer driven systems interacting closely with their physical environment.
