PARAVASIS is a CDTI-funded project supported by the Ministry of Science and Innovation, which investigates new technologies to substantially improve the flexibility and productivity of the design and development process of complex industrial systems, favoring the customization of new software-intensive products and considering the best balance of time, capacity and cost, as well as security.
The development of complex software systems in the future is likely to be more like expressing desired capabilities and functionality than writing code or having a repository of algorithms. Software and systems engineers will become specialists in training artificial intelligence (AI) systems that must learn from experience. Elegant software will no longer refer to well-developed code according to best practices, but will be the result of work done
with AI systems that implement the best ideas that professionals can think of.
PARAVASIS researches disruptive technologies that facilitate customization, parameterization and flexibility facing changes in this design process, thanks to the use of AI that is trained and used by the multidisciplinary team, focusing on the ideas as if they were a single team while jointly designing the new product/system or changes to an existing one. In this way, they focus on the business within a safer and less costly process and where Extended Reality technologies allow advanced simulations of the design in real time.
Overall project objectives:
Increase the flexibility and productivity of the design and development process of complex industrial systems for different domains
To favor the customization of new software-intensive products considering the best balance of time, capacity and cost, as well as safety requirements from the design stage.
To test the research hypotheses through experimentation in four proof-of-concepts in sectors where the design of software-intensive systems is complex: naval, industrial, railway and aerospace.
The specific objectives of the project are:
To investigate new paradigms for expressing human ideas that are automatically converted into complex industrial system designs using artificial intelligence technologies and trained AI systems that interact with a multidisciplinary team using a given vocabulary.
Investigate new composition paradigms using technologies for intelligent design and construction of software components that facilitate automatic software that facilitate the automatic integration of components that were not initially intended to work with each other.
Research in extended reality technologies to perform real time simulations based on the designs devised by the multidisciplinary team and the multidisciplinary team. by the multidisciplinary team and the software components that support them with the possibility of selecting and modifying features considering the best balance of time, quality, cost and safety.
Perform a proof of concept of partial automation of the new disruptive technologies investigated as a result of specific objectives 1 to 3.
To carry out an industrial experimentation of the research results in the proof of concept in the naval, industrial, railway and aerospace sectors.
