In this lecture different principles, methods and tools for product and process modelling are presented. For instance principles of system technology, hierarchic structuring and modelling are reviewed. The methods of model design and its specification are demonstrated and discussed. Systematic data modelling is being presented in view of ISO 10303 “Standard for the Exchange of Product Model Data” by use of SADT, EXPRESS and EXPRESS-G. The concepts of process modelling are explained with the help of business process modelling with EPK and BPMN2. Further focuses of this lecture are object orientated modelling with UML as well as the new methods of communication in terms of Industrie 4.0. Particular emphasis within the lecture is on deepening theoretical knowledge with the help of practical examples and smaller exercises.

Learning Targets:

  • Understanding the relation between functions, data and process modelling
