Christian Doppler Labor VaSiCS

Welcome to the Christian Doppler Laboratory for Mastering Variability in Software-Intensive Cyber-Physical Production Systems (CDL VaSiCS)

The CD Lab aims to conduct applied basic research focusing on methodological support for mastering variability in Software-Intensive Cyber-Physical Production Systems (CPPS). A key focus will be on the automatic handling of variability, e.g., analyzing existing CPPS artifacts from the design process of CPPS to automatically extract and model variability information and generating and configuring target artifacts, especially to better support system evolution and future changes in software and hardware platforms as well as tools. 

Our industry partner is Primetals Technologies.

The financial support by the Austrian Federal Ministry for Digital and Economic Affairs, the National Foundation for Research, Technology and Development, and the Christian Doppler Research Association is gratefully acknowledged. We also want to explicitly thank our industry partner Primetals Technologies and the Upper Austrian Government.
