MaCon YouTube Video

December 02, 2015

In the last days, I prepared a YouTube video demonstrating MaCon: A tool for consistent cross-discipline conception of manufacturing systems. The video explains the MaCon user interface and shows advanced features such as scenario-based testing and test report generation. The tool represents an integral part of my dissertation work at the Technische Universitaet Muenchen.

MaCon is implemented using Java, JavaFX, and JBullet. For development, we use Apache Maven and Eclipse, but any other Java IDE can be used as well. Internally, MaCon comprises five modules: The core, the model, the syntax checker, the semantics checker (or simulation engine), and the workbench. The workbench includes the previous four modules and adds a graphical user interface.

In the coming months we plan to prepare some more YouTube videos explaining other parts of MaCon. For example, we are working on a tutorial explaining the development of an entire self-contained and consistent manufacturing systems model. Furthermore, we want to present advanced features such as live multi-user synchronization or engineering work flow analysis. Let us know whether you like the tool and what you would like to know about the tool! Cheers.

Visualizing our Smart Grid Simulation

At ICSE I presented our initial model for simulating the smart grid including both physical and software components. To help developers analyse their systems we developed a visualization pipeline on top of the model. A first YouTube screencast demonstrates sample visualization output as proof of concept.

Smart grid seminar started today!

Today the spring term started at the Technical University of Munich and so did our newly created smart grid seminar. The goal of the seminar is to teach young students about the area of Smart Grids and inspire them for their future academic careers. I hope in the coming months I can report good progress and interesting results.
