Also in the current semester, I got the opportunity together with the Human-Computer Interaction & Visual Analytics team to hold the seminar “Visual Trend Analysis” at the TU Darmstadt in the Department of Computer Science. The kick-off of the seminar was yesterday and will take the entire semester with a final presentation at the end.
This time I offered topics coming from the European research project E2COMATION and the national research project CliCE-DiPP regarding energy and emission reduction, where we as Software AG are involved. The goal is to elaborate and find answers, especially to state-of-the-art questions, and what approaches and best practices could be assumed.
The goal of the E2COMATION project is the improvement of industrial energy efficiency at the European manufacturing level which requires the integration of energy data with advanced optimization techniques to guide a company’s decision-making. E2COMATION intends to address the optimization of energy usage, at multiple hierarchical layers of a manufacturing process as well as considering the whole life-cycle perspective across the value chain. CliCE-DiPP aims to develop a digital CO2 product pass based on the Asset Administration Shell (AAS), a standardized framework for the exchange and provision of information. It contains all relevant sustainability and energy data across companies over the entire life cycle of a product and allocates them accordingly.
