Tanja Mayerhofer is a post doctoral research at the Business Informatics Group. She has studied Business Informatics at the Vienna University of Technology and received her PhD in 2014. Her PhD thesis is concerned with the development of executable modeling languages. The current research interests of Tanja are model-driven software engineering, language engineering, model execution, model analysis, model comparison, and model-driven reverse engineering. She has been involved in nationally and internationally funded research projects and leads the open source project moliz.

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.
The project LEA-xDSML (Language Engineering for Analyzable Executable Domain-Specific Modeling Languages) resides in the context of Model-Driven Engineering (MDE), which proposes the use of domain-specific modeling languages (DSMLs) to reduce the complexity associated with the development of complex software-intensive systems, as, for instance, found in the automation domain, production domain, and automotive domain.
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 „Adaptive Distributed Systems“ intends to work on the challenging questions of today’s distributed computer systems by bringing together experts from various fields of computer science, mathematics and statistics, thus, fostering a multidisciplinary approach.
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 BSopt project will deliver an integrated methodology for inter-organizational systems spanning from business models over business process models to their execution in a service-oriented architecture (SOA). Integrating business processes into a SOA is certainly a hot topic.
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.
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.
