Software tools and services

To execute the methodology, it is necessary to have a comprehensive set of services for the customer. CORONA will identify such services, show how they can be realised and deliver operational implementations.

There is a variety of tools to support the design of MNT products on the higher levels (e.g. from Coventor), to support the design and knowledge management of technologies (e.g. from the EU FP6 project PROMENADE, provided for CORONA by Universität Siegen and Process Relations), and to link communication, networking and project execution tools to this scenario (e.g. from Process Relations). These tools will be useful components for customer services and will thus be taken as core objects for innovative service implementations.

Beyond existing tools from the partners a variety of other design tools, which exist on the market, will also be integrated into the environment. In the most critical areas of the design flow, especially at the boundaries between structural design, layout design and process design, however, there are still only few useful tools available. To be able to execute the whole methodology, a considerable part of the work in this project will deal with the development and implementation of new services and tools of this kind to be integrated into the overall design flow.
