Research Unit: Innovative Factory Systems

Lead Human Machine Interaction Group


Simon Bergweiler received a diploma in applied computer science at Trier University of Applied Sciences in 2004. Since then he is researcher and software engineer at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI). He has worked on Discourse Modelling, Multimodal Interfaces and
Dialog Systems, but his main research interests include Systems and Human Machine Interaction Technologies for Future Factories (Industrie 4.0), distributed manufacturing via Cyber Physical Production Modules, flexible Web service integration by Semantic Web Services, and knowledge
management based on Semantic Technologies. Furthermore he is responsible for the development and systems integration based on various service oriented middleware products in international research projects and industrial projects.


In addition, he leads the group to explore Human Machine Interaction (HMI) in the area of innovative factory systems. The aim is to provide optimum human support in the smart production environment of the factory of the future. We must therefore bear in mind that the success of the
factory of the future depends on the interaction between man and machine. As the most flexible element of the value chain, people play a central role. To integrate people into this new working world, we need innovative business and communication processes. The machines and their interfaces, such as user interfaces, need to be adapted more to the needs of people in order to support them more effectively in their daily work. This requires intelligent assistance systems that cooperate with humans.

In the field of Smart Human Machine Interaction we are working on the further development of the following topics:

  • Knowledge management in the production environment as well as
    intelligent and adaptive process design (workflow management)
  • Context-sensitive user interfaces (models and ontologies)
  • assistance systems and intention recognition based on merged
    heterogeneous information sources (intelligent manual workstation
    and Smart Worker)
  • use and combination of innovative technologies and equipment in
    the production environment (Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality,
    Machine Learning, Chatbot and spoken dialogue systems

Research Projects

  • DIGITbrain is an EU innovation program to give SMEs easy access to digital twins. A Digital Twin is a computer-based application/simulation that mimics the real production line of a company and runs in parallel with the real manufacturing process.
    Using this Digital Twin, companies can rationalise the manufacturing process, make predictions
    regarding expected machine failures and can predict maintenance needs, for example.
  • Akzent4Basys. In this project an active worker-centered shop floor interaction system for BaSys is designed and implemented to provide flexible information for the employee.
  • CloudiFacturing Cloudification of Production Engineering for Predictive Digital Manufacturing – The mission of CloudiFacturing is to optimize production processes and producibility using Cloud/HPC-based modelling and simulation, leveraging online factory data and advanced data analytics, thus contributing to the competitiveness and resource efficiency of manufacturing SMEs, ultimately fostering the vision of Factories 4.0 and the circular economy. (started 2017, ongoing)
  • CloudiFacturing will empower over 60 European organizations (many of them being manufacturing SMEs) and will support about 20 cross-national application experiments that will primarily be selected via two Open Calls. The Open Calls will be published July 2018 and July 2019.
  • CAxMan The objectives of Computer Aided Technologies for Additive Manufacturing (CAxMan) are to establish Cloud based Toolboxes, Workflows and a One Stop-Shop for CAx-technologies supporting the design, simulation and process planning for Additive Manufacturing. (started 2015, ongoing)
  • CloudFlow covers Computer Aided Design and Manufacturing (CAD/CAM), Computer Aided Engineering (CAE), especially. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) including pre- and post-processing, simulation of mechatronic systems (Functional Digital Mock-Up – FDMU) and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) including data archival. (2013 -2017)
  • Resource Conservation by Context-Activated Machine-to-Machine Communication as enabler for Industrie 4.0, (2016 – 2017) see link in publications (study in GERMAN)
  • M2M Semantic Technologies – Inside Cyber-Physical Production Modules – Standards for the Modelling of Data of Field Devices (2014 – 2016)
