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.

HyperKit - A lightweight CMS written in PHP.

Recently, I helped a friend of mine who is starting his own business with his website. I searched for a lightweight content management system which provides enough power to support his use case. After having tried several options, I decided to implement my own software. The result: A lightweight CMS written in PHP which suites well for small to medium size businesses.

Using Energy Storage

After adding the powerhouse in the previous example we now integrate a model of energy storage components into the picture. This first study explores the behavior of the powerhouse and the energy storage with respect to solar energy and an array of 20 refrigerators. Obviously, the storage helps to reduce/delay powerhouse usage.
