Research Topics


Thematically, the network focuses on an intelligent machine integration. This topic addresses a current and future problem situation in practice in the area of Industry 4.0 and represents a key technology for the implementation of Smart Factories. Based on existing practical and scientific experiences, the initial consortium of the network propose the following five research topics which should be addressed in the network.

integration

Intelligent & self-adapting Integration

Plug-and-Play integration

Automated reuse and adaptation of integration knowledge

bigdata

Big Machine Data


Processing and analyzing of large machine data streams

cloud

Cloud Services


Development of new cloud services

Integration and machine data processing "as a Service" solutions

platform

Integration Platform


Prebuild integration environments

Interfaces, mappers, transformation languages and runtime environments

cockpit
