High-tech systems integrate numerous highly complex components. Simulations are necessary at various stages of their design
process to ensure mechanical robustness and reliability. COMPAS aims to develop novel, compact models and ultra-compact
digital twins. The compact models capture nonlinear, transient and coupled (i.e. multiphysics) situations. The digital twins can
self-sufficiently cast decisions (ultimately in real time) for prognostic health management. COMPAS will develop them using the example of the thermo-mechanical reliability of hightech systems, such as motor control units for automated factories, smart infrastructures (streetlights, power grids) or autonomous vehicles.
