Abstract:


The demand for decreasing time to market poses as
major challenge to shorten the engineering process of technical
systems. Considering the engineering process from the initial
mission to build a technical system through to the final system
commissioning, engineering has become increasingly expensive in
terms of time and money. The improvement of individual tools
and improved interoperability of tools are two common approaches
used to help meet this demand.
This paper contributes to answering the question of which
approach seems to be more advantageous by reporting the results
from a questionnaire-based survey. The questionnaire was distributed
to experts from a wide range of disciplines with different
backgrounds in automation engineering. The experts were asked
about the importance of different tool functionalities regarding
engineering process phases and activities and by when they expect
these functions to be implemented in tools.
This paper analyzes the results of the questionnaire focusing
on the entire engineering process of technical systems.
