We want products to become increasingly smart. That doesn’t make their design any easier, on the contrary. By using model-based methods and corresponding supporting software tools, we make sure that the development trajectory is right from the first time. In this way, we can enhance innovation. 

Concrete research objectives

Our research supports companies in the design of (multi-context usable) products and/or their assembly system. That is why we develop model-based methods and corresponding software tools for time-and cost-efficiently designing and optimising smart products (and product families), their assembly system or both. The purpose is a faster and cheaper market introduction of better and more innovative products (product families) and solutions that create added value for the user. 

For whom?

  • Developers of cyber-physical systems
  • Developers of assembly solutions
  • Suppliers of software tools and engineering services
