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.

My SE4SG Presentation

I just uploaded my presentation slides for the SE4SG workshop to slideshare to give you the opportunity to review my talk. I hope everybody enjoyed the presentation and got some inspiration for their own research agenda from the things we are working on here at Technical University of Munich. At least, for me it was like that with the other talks.

The Evolution of a Functional Prototype

In a previous article From Sketch to Prototype I illustrated the change from fuzzy whiteboard sketches to more structured and formal HTML prototypes. In this article I take the process one step further to arrive at a real functional prototype of the system backed by (exemplary) database content and Model-View-Controller (MVC) style application logic.
