Evaluation of grades

The module is not graded (only study achievements)..


  • Introduction to the hardware and software of the model factory (e.g. Fischertechnik factory simulation).
  • Developing a control architecture for the modular control of production modules
  • Semantic description (self-description) of all system components
  • Integration into a service-oriented software architecture with OPC-UA and software software tools such as AASX Package Explorer
  • Design and implementation of complex control tasks of modules
  • Software implementation with embedded control systems (e.g. Revolution-PI)

Competencies / intended learning achievements

Students acquire methods to describe, design, realise and implement cyber-physical production systems based on a model factory and tools regarding information modelling and control of plants.

Upon successful completion of the module, students will be able to,

  • define requirements for controlling a modular production plant
  • define additional requirements for a system solution independently according to heuristic criteria
  • create specifications from different views of the system requirement
  • describe system components and interfaces with suitable tools according to Industry 4.0 standards
  • to structure agreed and self-selected tasks into subtasks and to work on them together in a cooperative way.
  • estimate the effort required to carry out the project and plan and use resources effectively
  • document and present work results comprehensively and in appropriate depth
  • present, discuss and moderate a presentation using digital media to an expert audience
  • assess one's own scope for action and decision-making and the associated responsibility and, if necessary, obtain specific information, define priorities, derive tasks, develop solutions and monitor progress
  • recognise potential misunderstandings and role conflicts in communication situations at an early stage and contribute to conflict management
  • argue in a goal-oriented manner in controversial discussions and deal with criticism in the most objective manner
  • participate constructively and actively in heterogeneous working groups
  • represent independent and, if necessary, divergent points of view in a comprehensible way, arguing convincingly and in a meaningful way
  • lead, guide and motivate a working group
  • lead diverse groups in a responsible manner and represent the results of their work to third parties
  • to independently develop one's own professional, methodological, technological, interdisciplinary, social and personal competences.
