Horizon2020 Project OpenReq
As software projects continue to grow in size and importance, the need for intelligent, diverse, personalised, and sustainable requirements grows as well. Creating and maintaining such requirements demands tool support beyond what is currently offered. OpenReq satisfies these needs. The goal of OpenReq is to build an intelligent recommendation and decision system for community-driven requirements engineering. OpenReq recommends, prioritises, and visualises requirements using novel techniques developed at leading research institutes. The outcomes of OpenReq touch a broad set of communities. OpenReq provides actionable feedback for software practitioners, novel contributions for the scientific community, and solid foundations for the open-source requirements engineering community.
Interreg Project Mass Customization 4.0
The MC 4.0 PROJECT improves the innovation base of SMART LIVING SMEs to face the new challenges of the competition and of the INDUSTRY 4.0 in the program area. Local bases created to increase their ability to meet the specific needs of individual customers at affordable costs (MC – Mass Customization) through digitized personalization processes (4.0), which the customer closer to the production chain of SMEs, lowering costs, speeding up the times and ensuring the quality of the product. The digitization of the customization process goes th increasingly high-performance product configuration tools – PRODUCT CONFIGURATORS – which perform the strategic function of directly connecting customers with the company’s back office. To achieve these results, more than 120 Italian and Austrian SMEs are directly involved, and it is established a partnership which represents scientific and technological knowledge (Università degli Studi di Padova – Department of Management and Engineering, Free University of Bozen, Universität Klagenfurt), needs of SMEs (Apindustria Confimi Vicenza, Fondazione Centro Produttività Veneto, Energieforum Kärnten) and industrial realities (Roen Est SpA, SelectionArts Intelligent Decision Technologies GmbH).
