BMBF Joint Project mecPro²
The goal of the joint project is to enable companies through suitable processes, methods and IT tools for the development of Cybertronic Systems. Cybertronic Systems are Mechatronic Systems which are extended by properties of Cyber-Physical Systems. These properties cover i.e. communication, cooperation and system boundaries that change during operation.
A main achievement of the project will be a framework for the interdisciplinary development process of Cybertronic Systems that supports companies in the cooperative development of product and corresponding production system. For this purpose, the techniques of Model-based Systems Engineering are used. Information within the models will be managed directly by functions of Product Lifecycle Management Systems (PLM), without going a detour through documents.
BMBF Joint Project InnoServPro
Despite the rising demand for guaranteed availability of producer goods, companies are not willing to offer such guarantees. High costs, due to high levels of risk, resulting from a lack of operational data and transparency about machine states, are economically not viable for both sides. In this context, Industry 4.0 and today available technologies offer opportunities to realize innovations in the service sector and offer availability-oriented business models to exploit their potentials. The overall objective of the project InnoServPro is developing innovative service products for the entire extended value-added network for the realization of individualized, availability-oriented business models for producer's goods. The basis for this are intelligent, communicating components, that provide real-time data from operations of the producer's goods as well as their integration with master data and data from service provisions to an integrated data base.
