Zur Person

Professor Wörn studierte Elektrotechnik an der Universität Stuttgart und promovierte dort am Institut für Werkzeugmaschinen mit seiner Arbeit zu dem Thema "Mehrprozessorsteuerungssystem für Werkzeugmaschinen mit standartisierten Schnittstellen". Im Anschluss arbeitete er bei KUKA Schweißanlagen und Roboter GmbH, wo er eine leitende Stellung in Forschung und Entwicklung inne hatte. Professor Wörn ist ein international anerkannter Experte für Roboter und Automation. Seine Erfahrung umfasst Roboteranwendungen, Robotersteuerungen und Sensoren für Roboter, sowie deren Programmmierung und Simulation. Seit 1997 leitet er das Institut für Prozessrechentechnik, Automation und Robotik der Universität Karlsruhe als Professor für "Komplexe Systeme in Automation und Robotik".

KurzfassungToday, co-operative engineering in the fields of plant production is a time consuming and expensive issue. The integration process of product data and models into the planning and engineering of the production facilities and vice versa is a complex task. Furthermore, these integration processes are repeated in an iterative manner at every level or phase of the plant production project in a supply network of suppliers, turnkey suppliers and manufacturers. The diversity of planning, design and simulation tools, as well as their varying model structures result in completely different interfaces. The globally located co-operation partners and the highly distributed sub-models throughout the supply network cannot be integrated into one complete model. As a result, a consistent digital representation of the complete production facility is not available, nowadays. Against this background, a new web service based platform providing developed methods for co-operative plant production within virtual engineering is presented in this paper. It supports the protection of knowledge as well as efficient role and project dependent encrypted data exchange with a definable level of security based on XML. An integration into an existing legacy software architecture is exemplified with popular engineering software.
