CeBIT 2013: Software-Cluster Demonstrates Cross-Company Value Added Chains

27.02.2013
During this year's CeBIT in Hanover from 5 - 9 March 2013, the German Software-Cluster will present current research findings at the stand of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
The theme of the Ministry's booth in Hall 9, Booth E50 is “Industry 4.0 – The Factory of the Future.” Within this context, the Software-Cluster partners will show five demonstrators covering the different aspects of managing cross-company value added chains.

By example of a (fictitious) company that develops innovative and personalized medicine technology products and that is dependent on the collaboration with specialized companies across the entire value chain, the connection between the various Software-Cluster demonstrators shown at CeBIT is illustrated:
Business Model Wizard:
The Business Model Wizard is an IT-based toolkit for the comprehensive and standardized describing of business models. A company can use it to analyze, configure, and optimize its business model. Furthermore, it's possible to compare one's own business model with similar business model profiles of other companies in a reference database in order to assess one's own economic prospects of success. http://www.software-business-model.com
Software Process Wizard:
The Software Process Wizard analyzes and optimizes a company's software development processes. This solution enables companies to streamline their processes, make them more flexible, and adapt them to current challenges. http://www.wizard.software-cluster.org

Collaborative Development of Processes As a Service:
The integration of different companies into the manufacturing process of a product is coordinated through collaborative process modeling. All stakeholders from the various companies participating in the overall process can exchange the latest information on the process steps, keep abreast of current changes, and submit suggestions for improvement via a social networking platform. This not only adds to the flexibility of the production process, employees also identify more with the product which leads to enhanced job satisfaction. http://www.softwareag.com/de/Company/companyinfo/research/indinet.asp

CaeSar – Compliance for Emergent Software Systems:
Companies can use a governance and compliance system to ensure that established quality guidelines are adhered to throughout the entire value chain. This can be used to compile orders for customized products. Subsequently, the most appropriate external service providers are selected based on key compliance indicators and then the entire value chain is assessed for its adherence with all compliance guidelines. This gives companies the ability to dynamically compile value chains and in spite of the resulting, modified process characteristics, to ensure that all regulatory and legal requirements are adhered to. http://www.software-cluster.org/de/forschung/ergebnisse/item/caesar

An Intelligent Augmented Reality Guide:
The Intelligent Augmented Reality Guide demonstrates how work on complex systems can be simplified by directly displaying contextual information into the user's field of vision via special eyeglasses. Using this system, users can for the first time simply film the operations rather than resorting to more traditional cost intensive methods. In this case, no other technical tools are required and the system even detects freehand gestures. Thus, the time required for creating augmented reality manuals can be considerably reduced, and because of its low level of complexity the technology can be widely used. http://av.dfki.de/ar-handbook

The demonstrators shown at CeBIT 2013 were created by one or more of the following Software-Cluster partners: ConWeaver GmbH, German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics (IGD), intelligent views gmbh, SAP AG, Software AG, Technische Universität Darmstadt.

The various Software-Cluster findings will also be presented as part of the CeBIT lab talks: Under the title “Software-Cluster on Stage,” the researchers in the Software-Cluster will present their findings on Wednesday, March 9, 2013 from 3 to 4 p.m. in the CeBIT lab talk in Hall 9, J50.

In addition to the findings presented at the Federal Ministry of Education and Research's booth, the Software-Cluster can also be found in many other locations at the CeBIT 2013. A total of 20 Software Cluster partners from academia and industry will present their software innovations at their own booths during the CeBIT.

Im Focus: Nanoparticles help with malaria diagnosis – new rapid test in development

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.

Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....
