SFB 901 On-The-Fly Computing

The objective of CRC 901 – On-The-Fly Computing (OTF Computing) – is to develop techniques and processes for automatic on-the-fly configuration and provision of individual IT services that are available on world-wide markets. In addition to the configuration by special OTF service providers and the provision by so-called OTF Compute Centers, this involves developing methods for quality assurance and the protection of participating clients and providers, methods for the target-oriented further development of markets, and methods to support the interaction of the participants in dynamically changing markets.

CRC 901 is divided into three project areas. Project area A is concerned with the algorithmic and economic basics for organizing large dynamic markets. This involves, on the one hand, algorithmic processes for organizing large networks in general and the interaction in networks in particular and, on the other hand, economic concepts for incentive systems in order to direct the participants in the markets. Project area B investigates processes of the modeling, composition and quality analysis of services and service configurations aiming at on-the-fly development of high-quality IT services. Project area C develops reliable execution environments for on-the-fly computing and is concerned with questions of the stability and security of markets, the organization of highly heterogeneous OTF Compute Centers and the provision of configured services by those centers. This project area also involves an application project that deals with systems for optimizing supply and logistic networks, which is considered a long-term application field for the results of the CRC.

Method development for mechanical joinability in versatile process chains

In all areas of product manufacturing, e.g. vehicle construction, machine and plant construction, medical and household appliance technology, constructions made of individual components are usually joined to more or less complex structures with a numerous number of joints. The joinability is the key for efficient production processes of variable structures with shorter model cycles and is increasingly becoming a strategic competitive factor for Germany as a development and production location of products. The growing number of material-geometry-combinations (MGC) requires not only a reliable prognosis of the joinability, but also in particular the versatility of mechanical joining processes. Up to now, mechanical joining processes have been configured to the respective MGC and can only be adapted to external process influences to a very limited extent, which means that they have to be adapted to new MGC at great expense. The vision of the Transregional Collaborative Research Center 285 is to ensure the mechanical joinability in versatile process chains. Using the example of mechanical joints, an interdisciplinary team of researchers is investigating scientific methods for transformability in the three areas of material (joining suitability), design (joining safety) and production (joining possibility) as well as for reliable prognosis and design of the joinability. In the long term, a flexible, transferable and cross-industry design methodology will be available. For new joining tasks, this provides the possibility of selecting the process and designing the joint, creating suitable material solutions and taking into account the interactions between the preceding manufacturing steps and the joint load-bearing capacity. The achievable mechanical properties of the joints can thus be predicted in advance with sufficient accuracy.

SFB/TRR 142 Tailored Nonlinear Photonics (associated Partner)

The central goal of the TRR 142 is the establishment of a new kind of tailored nonlinear photonics, which is driven by concepts from quantum optics, coherent optics, ultrafast optoelectronics, and solid state physics.
