Reduction of energy consumption and CO2 emissions and enhancement of the resource efficiency through a state-oriented regulation of the manufacturing process in calcium silicate masonry unit plants – operational simulation with integration of real-time data

In industrial enterprises, owing to a lack of real-time data acquisition, manufacturing orders are generated based on an estimated future current state and thus lately deployed. They therefore do not regulate the current state of production and are therefore not suited to respond to short-term devia... Weiterlesen

adidas Speedfactory Digital Twin

The adidas Speedfactory is a multi-phase project, which should bring manufacturing capacities back to Germany. Phase 1 was completed in the SEP 2016 and included the production of 1000 pairs of performance sports shoes. Phase 2 started in the first quarter of 2017 and aims at a blueprint for a... Weiterlesen

E|KoWiss: Holistic knowledge-based energy dat management system

The project E|KoWiss is to provide an energy data management system which is capable of representing energy and resource consumption in the production in any granularity. In addition, the consumption data collected in the production process are to be enriched with semantic information in order to fa... Weiterlesen

ADeUSPro – Anomaly Detection in Ultrasonic Sensor Production

In order to enable autonomous driving at level 3 or higher, it is essential to manufacture the necessary sensor systems, such as new ultrasonic sensors with improved accuracy, in high quality, large quantities and at low cost. Due to the high requirements on these novel sensor designs, an innovative... Weiterlesen

Additive4Industry – Printed Electronics on 3D substrates

In comparison to conventional production processes, Additive Manufacturing entails a lot of advantages, especially when it comes to flexibility, realization of greater freedom of design and functional integration. Since the use of thermoplastic polymers is limited with regard to thermal stability an... Weiterlesen

OPTAVER: Optical Packaging for 3D-optomechatronic-Devices

As a tribute to the continuously increasing volume of data traffic, optical waveguides have become a serious alternative to electrical circuitries. The potential of precise space-resolved strain measurements or the capacity to transmit very large amounts of data are two examples of the beneficial us... Weiterlesen

OUTDOC: Outplacement Support for Doctorates in Emerging Areas

Currently, we live in a rapidly changing world that requires a specialized society. Therefore, project OUTDOC focuses on the resulting requirements for people on the labour market, while taking into account the new technologies. More than one million jobs are expected to be created in emerging secto... Weiterlesen


In the competence and analysis project for process and production optimisation by means of data mining (E|ASY-OPT), problem-specific and advanced data mining methods are being examined for their integrability in existing and start-up production lines for the holistic quality monitoring of production...

Building Material integrated Surface Heating

The goal of this project is to develop a new kind of heating system that eliminates existing disadvantages. This includes the poor efficiency of gas and oil heaters, the high installation effort for connecting the central heating as well as low heat-transfer rates. Investigations point out that warm...
