A major exponent of the Dutch knowledge economy is formed by the Dutch high-tech industries. Example high-tech systems include ASML's wafer scanners, Océ's office printers, Philips' medical imaging equipment, and FEI's electron microscopes. These companies face a tremendous challenge in meeting the increasing demands with respect to system throughput and system accuracy, leading to an explosion of the system complexity. To cope with complexity, current design methods divide systems in manageable parts that are designed and verified in isolation by different engineering disciplines. This separation-of-concerns however, is now slowing down the pace to keep up with performance roadmaps. The challenge is therefore to conceive new engineering methodologies that can go beyond the traditional boundaries of mechatronics, electronics, and software. The goal of this project is to develop such a methodology, which allows the different engineering disciplines to design and analyze the control algorithms, the execution platforms, and the embedded software in tandem in a model-based fashion.
