The annual Conference on Manufacturing Systems (CIRP CMS 2018) provides a platform for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss the advancements in manufacturing environments. This year, the conference focused on smart manufacturing and artificial intelligence.
At the conference, TU Wien presented its latest research results on context-aware systems. Together with FACTS4WORKERS, the authors continue their efforts in developing a framework for the analysis and design of such systems. In that regard, the publication defines the term context in the industrial domain. Further, the authors determine and classify the components of a context as well as how this information facilitates in later development stages.
During the networking sessions and social events, Patrick Rosenberger participated in private discussions about possible applications and the advantages of context-aware systems. In that regard, the FACTS4WORKERS project was discussed as an example of how such systems can assist workers during their daily tasks.
