The goal if AITOC is to develop an integrated toolchain for manufacturing engineering that supports decision-making in early
phases. To achieve this, the toolchain will support the formalisation and automated analysis of requirements, the computer-aided
generation of process plans, simulation models and instructions and the softwaresupported generation of layouts. In all of these dimensions, Artificial Intelligence will be utilised in expert systems and simulations based on data from existing solutions. The interoperability of engineering tools is also in focus and will be developed using standardised neutral data formats.
