Industrial DevOps

Industrial DevOps is the idea of bringing the principles of DevOps to the industrial environment. With this idea we are striving for following benefits for small and mid-size enterprises:

  • Smooth and fast integration of new software (features) into the production system
  • Integration of all running systems and processes on one platform for better analysis and monitoring
  • Healthy systems during the whole lifecycle

The complex requirements of digitization will be handled in an agile way and through small iterative loops changes will always be welcome.

The Titan Project

The Titan project will build a prototype of a software platform, which will enable industrial users to apply the principles and best practices of DevOps, Lean and Agile to the complex problems of the ongoing digitization.

Sub goals of the Titan project are:

  • Quality Assurance
  • Monitoring of the systems
  • Resilience of the systems
  • Avoidance of technical debts
  • Scalability
  • Elimination of the Vendor-Lock-In

Therefor we will start the scientific research on how to build a platform which is fulfilling all the sub goals but at the same time “easy-to-use” for employees even with low programming knowledge.

The main and overall goal of the Titan project is to

reduce the costs and risks of digitization for small and mid-size enterprises.

The results of the Titan project research will be open source.

The Titan project is sponsored by Federal Ministry of Education and Research, Government of the Federal Republic of Germany under the FKZ 01IS17084 A - B.
