Eclipse 4diac is a modelling tool for distributed control systems based on IEC 61499. The CPPS engineering workflow will introduce cloud resources (Virtual Machines, Docker) to the existing resources provided by 4diac.
The CPPS engineering workflow of 4diac (by FORTISS, Fraunhofer IPA) enables automation experts who are the main target group of 4diac to make use of cloud technologies. Furthermore, 4diac may be used as CPPS engineering tool with the goal to simplify the creation and deployment of CPPS by means of the modelling paradigm of IEC 61499.
Main exploitation channels are the 4diac webpage, forum, and mailing list, as well as social media channels.
