Possible Study achievement

  • Verification of study performance: proof of successful participation in the exercise classes (ungraded)
  • Details of the examination (type, duration, criteria) will be announced at the beginning of the course.


  • Computer-based control of production processes, technologies, architectures, standards.
  • data transmission and network technologies in industry
  • selected modelling methods of digital production processes (event-discrete processes, entity-relationship models, object-oriented modelling, ontologies)
  • Modelling languages for digital production processes (UML, SysML, AutomationML, PackML)
  • Cyber-physical production systems (self-description capability of production modules, production-as-a-service, plug-and-produce, virtual object memory, self-control of production with batch size 1
  • Industrie 4.0 reference architecture RAMI 4.0 and administration shell
  • Overview of distributed systems for the integration of industrial artificial intelligence processes (edge, cloud).
