Summary event of CDL-Flex

Christian Doppler Laboratory gives an overview of main research results in a festive context

The increasing complexity and flexibility of developing modern automation systems, such as cyber-physical production systems, requires the systematic integration of software tools across engineering disciplines.

In the Christian Doppler Laboratory CDL-Flex, founded in 2010 at TU Wien, researchers from informatics and control engineering have worked on industrial challenges to develop and evaluate approaches for the technical and semantic integration of software tools and knowledge models across engineering disciplines.

Key research results are a technical integration platform for software tool chains, the „AutomationML Hub“, an approach for model-based design and integration of the simulation of industrial systems, Semantic Web-based methods for the integration of engineering data documented in a recent Springer book, and an approach for the model-based adaptation of production systems, as a foundation for implementing Industrie 4.0 use cases.

In this summary event, lead researchers from the CDL-Flex will give an overview of the main research results in the final funding period in a festive context.
