Using languages with formalized semantics for automating component integration is a well-established research area. As a consequence, independently developed software systems can interact without the need for manual integration effort in a "plug-and-play" manner. However, such dynamic adaptive system architectures are not widely used in Industrial IoT scenarios. Practitioners mostly rely on informal, domain-specific standards as formal interface specifications tend to become highly complex… Expand
Next Steps in Knowledge-driven Architecture Composition
TLDR
This paper provides the status of the incremental case-based integration method that aims at reducing the effort for formalizing integration knowledge without losing the ability to compose software components based on interface semantics automatically. Expand
Towards automating Service Matching for Manufacturing Systems: Exemplifying Knowledge-Driven Architecture Composition
TLDR
It is shown how component-based coupling mechanisms can be utilized by a novel bottom-up integration approach that allows for (semi-) automated service coupling by relying on case-based component integration. Expand
Automated onfiguration in adaptive IoT software ecosystems to reduce manual device integration effort: Application and evaluation of a novel engineering method
TLDR
This paper provides the first evaluation for a novel integration method that can integrate components automatically based on incomplete mapping knowledge and quantifies how reusing formal interface mappings can speed up integration tasks in an agile development setting. Expand
MergePoint: A Graphical Web-App for Merging HTTP-Endpoints and IoT-Platform Models
TLDR
A reference architecture called MergePoint is introduced that automates HTTP-Endpoint integration with smart home platforms such as openHAB in a plug-and-play manner and demonstrates that average integration time can be reduced by 78% and average tool usability score is increased by 65% compared to textual integration approaches.

A Mapping Language for IoT Device Descriptions
TLDR
This paper introduces a formal mapping language that allows to capture functional interaction semantics already during device integration time and shows that only few mapping elements are needed to define functional mappings between operations as well as to capture the underlying communication pattern.

Automated industrial IoT‐device integration using the OpenPnP reference architecture
TLDR
OpenPnP can reduce configuration and integration efforts up to 90% in typical settings, while potentially scaling well up to tens of thousands of communicated signals, potentially enabling “plug‐and‐produce” in many thousands of control systems. Expand
