SFB 768 Subproject D1

Assistance to the cycle-management design of PSS innovation processes through diagnosis and dissolving of inconsistencies between models of different domains

Field of Study

Keywords

Software Technology, Knowledge-Based Systems, Inconsistency Management

Problem

Due to the close interconnection of modeling approaches, formalisms and software tools as well as tasks of the different stakeholders, several challenges occur, that need to be addressed by an approach to systematically manage inconsistencies. These challenges include the heterogeneity of the models, the semantic dependencies, as well as the diagnosis and dissolving of inconsistencies and their visualization.

Goal

The overall objective of subproject D1 is to develop an approach for managing inconsistencies between models of different domains. Companies should be enabled to shorten their PSS-innovation process by smoothing out wrong decisions, which is often pointed out as inconsistencies. The project supports the cycle-management design of innovation processes by synchronizing the participating models where these models show dependencies. In addition, a support methodology shall be developed, which avoids inconsistencies proactively by design guidelines and a visualization approach. Furthermore it should reduce potential modification costs.
