From Quality Improvement to Information Security in agile Production Systems Engineering

Agile Production Systems Engineering concerns parallel and iterative engineering of production systems, based on reusable assets from historic projects, to shorten time to production.

The improvement of quality and information security in Production Systems Engineering is challenging due to multi-view engineering of stakeholders in several engineering disciplines, such as mechanics, automation, and software engineering.
This talk will start with a use case concerning a robot cell that automates joining car parts, to link the output product quality to production process quality, and factory resources that determine the resulting quality and information security. This use case illustrates building up multi-view models, starting from a technical foundation that represents domain-specific quality properties and dependencies in a Product-Process-Resource (PPR) Asset Network.

For quality improvement, we will build on the PPR Asset Network (PAN), to represent quality/risk cause-effect models linked to the PAN as a foundation for advanced analysis. For information security analysis and improvement, we will build on the PAN to represent attack-defense models linked to PAN assets and properties.
As an outlook, we will discuss task markers on PAN assets to guide human and computer agents, towards the governance and iterative automation of risky change processes in Production Systems Engineering.
