Title: Empowering high tech systems engineering using MDSE ecosystems

Biography: Ramon Schiffelers is a software architect at ASML, world's leading provider of lithography systems for the semiconductor industry, and assistant professor at the department of Mathematics and Computer Science at the Eindhoven University of Technology.

Within ASML, he is leading a research group (+/ 20 fte) consisting of (SW) architects, scientific programmers, (academic) researchers, and PhD, PDEng, and MSc students. Together with this group, he combines state-of-the-art methods and techniques from academia with state-of-the-practice in industry into so-called multi-disciplinary system engineering (MDSE) ecosystems. These ecosystems empower their users to develop complex, large-scale, software intensive systems.

Such (domain specific) ecosystems integrate:
  • domain formalizations in terms of domain specific languages (DSLs),
  • aspect models and tools for rigorous analysis and synthesis,
  • automated model re-constructors and model inference algorithms to deal with legacy software components
using model transformations that automate and formalize relations between different languages and models.

He has successfully introduced several MDSE ecosystems in the development process and products of ASML.
