Topic 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.
Topic 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.
Topic 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.
The dissertation project CODA addresses new, important research questions to combine operation data and configuration models/data for optimization of system configuration (engineering, planning, construction, maintenance) and operation. The results of CODA will be novel analytics methods and algorithms which will be exemplary evaluated for railway automation, but will be applicable to other domains as well.
Smart manufacturing requires deeply integrated IT systems in order to foster flexibility in the setup, re-arrangement and use of attached physical manufacturing systems. In a vertical integration scenario, IT systems of different vendors might be in use and proprietary interfaces need to defined in order to allow the exchange of relevant information from one system to another.
Although the concept of Semantic Web and Semantic Web technologies (SWT) in particular have been investigated over several years now, they were mainly seen as an interesting research topic having its application domain primarily in the World Wide Web (WWW) rather than be matured enough to be used within a productive environment that might have no direct relation to the WWW at all.
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.
The introduction of Extensible Markup Language (XML) represented a tremendous leap towards the design of Domain-Specific Languages (DSLs). Although XML-based languages are well adopted and flexible, their generic editors miss modern DSL editor functionality.
The aim of this work is to provide a comprehensive model transformation testing framework supporting all testing phases, ranging from test source model generation to fault localization.
Test model generation will be done following a white-box approach, leveraging the code of the transformation to achieve better results.
