  • 01/2016 – 12/2018: ScaleIT. Ziel des Forschungsprojekts ScaleIT ist die Entwicklung einer erweiterbaren technischen Plattform, über die Messwerte und Daten von Sensoren und intelligenten Werkzeugen bereitgestellt und mit den IT-Systemen vernetzt werden. Mit Softwarebausteinen (Apps) werden die Daten zu Informationen verlinkt. Die Anwendung intelligenter Werkzeuge, wie interaktive Dokumente, intelligente Werkstückträger und Prüfmittel, soll Prüfprozesse durch mehr Transparenz effizienter machen und alle Beteiligten bei Entscheidungen unterstützen.
  • 01/2014 – 03/2015: Software Campus. A Document Generation Prototype for Reconfigurable Software funded by the Germany Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF).
    The project tackles the problem of document generation in high variability intelligent industrial environments. The goal is to create a software prototype which can facilitate the dynamic generation of product documentation based not only on the current software configuration but also on the context at hand. At the core, it enables association, management and composition of documentation building blocks describing the software. The focus lies on natural language documentation that is used by end-users such as technicians and operators working with intelligent reconfigurable enterprise software. This topic is investigated in cooperation with Siemens AG Corporate Technology Vienna.


  • The ScaleIT research paper is now online! See below for the ACM Author-Izer link!
  • The ScaleIT website ist online and we will post an architecture white paper soon!
  • The first ScaleIT paper has been accepted and presented at the International Workshop on the Internet of Things 2016. The full paper is be available from my site via ACM Author-Izer link.
  • I was honored to take part in the Software Campus project from 2014, which is a research funding from the BMBF (Federal Ministry of Education and Research). The Software Campus is pursuing a dual strategy for the development of the IT managers of tomorrow: in parallel to the coaching by the industry partners it offers a project-oriented training of master’s and doctoral students in the context of publicly funded research projects.
