The Institute of Automation and Information Systems is one of the leading institutes for software engineering in automation. We are part of the TUM School of Engineering and Design and maintain strong links with the computer science community. One of our key research areas is the design and operation of intelligent networked production systems. In the competitive globalized economy and with an increased need for sustainability and resource-efficiency, the resilience of such production systems is key, achieved by advanced means of Fault-tolerant Control, including the avoidance and automatic recovery of faults. Especially faults on the field-level are oftentimes the reason for downtime, requiring resilient and intelligent field-level devices. Due to real-time constraints, the decision-making process on the field-level has to be highly efficient, necessitating appropriate information representations and algorithms. On the machine-level, (semi-)automatic recovery from faults and restarts have a huge potential for increasing the Overall Equipment Effectiveness. The design of such resilient systems is complemented by alarm analysis, e.g., root-cause analyses, which we investigate regarding implementation both within the field-level and using an architecture for distributed computing between field, edge, and cloud-level devices. Thereby, scalability in horizontal (additional cloud-connected processes) and vertical direction (more complex process observation, prediction, and intervention) are essential for a continuously expanding intelligent reconfigurability platform. We are currently looking for a PhD candidate to join our motivated team in this research area.Requirements
