Newsletter Nov./Dec. 2015: Collaborative Mechatronic Engineering built on AutomationML

Welcome to the November 2015 issue of the CDL-Flex newsletter, your newsfeed on the latest news, results, and upcoming events from the Christian Doppler research laboratory CDL-Flex at the Vienna University of Technology. Download the full newsletter [pdf, 840 KB].

Making engineering collaboration more effective and efficient in a heterogeneous software tool landscape is an ongoing issue for software solution providers and users.
At the upcoming SPS/IPC/Drives 2015 Electric Automation – Systems and Components experts from the Christian Doppler research laboratory CDL-Flex at the Vienna University of Technology will present and discuss applications for industry partners based on the AutomationML Hub for the versioned storage and integration of AutomationML data coming from heterogeneous engineering models and tools.

  • AutomationML Hub – Round Trip Engineering for distributed engineering projects of industrial plants.
  • Simulation Generation with AutomationML from heterogeneous engineering models.
  • Model-Based Engineering of software tools for multi-disciplinary engineering.

At the SPS IPC Drives 2015 exhibition, scheduled for November 24 - 26 in Nuremberg, Germany, you can find us at the TU Wien booth in hall 4-548 and at the booth of our industry partner logi.cals and LieberLieber in hall 6-331, see details in the section on upcoming events.

In this edition of the newsletter you will find results from the CDL-Flex research and evaluation.

  • Lessons learned from Industry Use Cases: AutomationML Hub – Round Trip Engineering.
  • Research Use Case: AML Analyzer for efficient and user-friendly exploration of engineering model data in Automation Systems Engineering.
  • Inside View: Model-Based Engineering of software tools for multi-disciplinary engineering to enable the efficient derivation of software tools.
  • New Research Results: Simulation Generation with AutomationML from heterogeneous engineering models.
  • Consider taking part in the upcoming events with experts from the CDL-Flex.

We hope you enjoy the articles and find food for thought on potential improvements and new solutions in your environment. On request we will be happy to provide you with the cited papers. We are looking forward to discussing your suggestions on issues for research and development to foster alternative solutions for better software data, model, and tool integration in engineering environments.
