The Christian Doppler Laboratory for Model-Integrated Smart Production (CDL-MINT) investigates model-driven engineering techniques, methods, and processes for smart production facilities as well as the evolution of such models based on production information gathered at runtime. By integrating these two research streams, CDL-MINT contributes to Digital Twin Engineering in general and provides dedicated support by the development of Digital Twin platforms which offer dedicated services to develop, operate, and manage Digital Twins.

CDL-MINT is located at the Institute of Business Informatics – Software Engineering at the Johannes Kepler University in Linz, Austria. CDL-MINT currently hosts three modules which are executed in cooperation with three industry partners, namely Certicon, LieberLieber, and B&R.

Christian Doppler Laboratories Overview

Christian Doppler laboratories conduct application-oriented research on a high level through a cooperation of excellent scientists with innovative companies. The funding program for this kind of cooperation is internationally considered best practice.

Christian Doppler laboratories are funded through the Christian Doppler Gesellschaft both by the public purse and by involved companies. The primary public funding partner is the Federal Ministry for Digital and Economic Affairs (Bundesministerium für Digitalisierung und Wirtschaftsstandort – BMDW).
