In the context of our current "Factory 4.0" project, our team also use the KMDL for the aims of the modeling and analyzis of knowledge intensive processes: Financed by the BMBF, in this project our team performs research for the fabric of the future and develops procedures, methods, tools and qualifi- cation processes in order to enable the transformation of existing factories into future CPS-factories. Our main research target is to facilitate the CPS-entities – humans, operating resources, information systems and products in the real demonstrators of the industry partners Siemens, Infineon and Festo – to be able to cope with the new challenges. As a part of this research, the knowledge- and information transfer interfaces between the entities as well as specific entities competence profiles will be modeled and analyzed with the KMDL. Against this background, we also plan a specific future development of the modeling language.
The project “MetamoFAB” (fn: 02PJ4040 ff ) has a duration of three years.
