Model-based development approaches have attracted a lot of attention in the last decade due to their ability to deal with complexity in large software engineering projects. However, a natural question raises, to what extent model-based development approaches are suited to tackle engineering challenges from other application domains such as the automation(More)
Mechatronic thinking in engineering is an upcoming trend in production system design and implementation. Several approaches and tools are considered and developed within the last years. Nevertheless, within practice the adoption of mechatronic engineering is not very fast. This is due to the required conviction of engineers about the benefits of mechatronic(More)
In diesem Beitrag wird eine Methodik vorgestellt, mit deren Hilfe Da-tenmodelle auf der Basis von gesichertem Erfahrungswissen definiert werden. Die Methodik begleitet die Entwicklung eines Datenmodells von der Anforderungser-hebung bis zur Umsetzung in einer Datenmodellierungssprache (z.B. XML Sche-ma). Die Grundidee lehnt sich an die bekannten(More)
Current architectural concepts in general demand the decomposition of a system into independent modules with well-defined interfaces. These concepts lead to a decoupling of data from the rest of the system by hiding the data access details behind an abstract interface. This pattern describes how the data access itself to exchangeable data resources can be(More)
Industrial engineering is inherently of mechatronic character. The integration of all involved disciplines across the entire engineering life cycle is considered as a key element for improvements but requires appropriate conceptual support. Mechatronic objects provide such an approach. A criteria catalog for an assessment-based qualitative evaluation of(More)
Considerable changes are taking place in germany in respect of age groups (fewer youngsters, more old people), and this is bound to be reflected by the demography of the working population (15 to 64 years) during the next 50 years. It is shown in this contribution how the expected changes in age distribution in Thuringia will probably be reflected by the(More)
