The Chair of Information and Automation Systems for Process and Material Technology (IAT) at RWTH Aachen University represents the subject area of industrial automation in research and teaching. One focus of the research work is the description of control engineering concepts with metamodels and the handling of these metamodels with formal methods. One application focus is the development of new types of information concepts for the integrated support of engineering, optimised process control and plant management in the life cycle of a production plant. One focus here is on intelligent modular plants that are automatically arranged, configured and connected to form integrated plants at runtime.
