The Santemar hotel in Santander, Spain, will be the meeting point for the 6th Plenary Meeting of the MegaM@Rt2 event, A scalable model-based framework for continuous development and runtime validation of complex systems.
MegaM@Rt2 is a European project involving 27 organizations, grouped in clusters from 6 different countries. The aim is providing a series of software modeling tools that help organizations improve their productivity and the quality of their results.
The idea of the project was born when the different collaborators noticed that the current existing modeling systems failed in terms of scalability to support real-world scenarios committed to the use of complex electronic components and systems, in addition to the lack of efficient traceability, in times of design or execution.
The central activity of these sessions will be the Hackathon MegaM@Rt2: New integration challenges featuring more than 2 tools. Hackathons are not limited only to education and learning environments. They are also useful for rapidly exploring new business ideas and producing software prototypes. However, to generate revenue and create real business value, promising prototypes must be developed further and transformed into finalized products. This activity will take place on the first day of the conferences, from 9 in the morning until 5 in the afternoon. Ending the awards ceremony to the participants.
MegaM@Rt2 extends the concept to the use of the hackathon, including it as a tool for internal use to facilitate and encourage collaboration between organizations of many different types, with the aim of producing a common result capable of covering basic needs in the market.
The main goal of the approach that we want to get with this Hackathon is increasing the efficiency of the 6th Plenary Meeting that will take place in Santander. We want to involve all different types of people in the activity, not only management personnel but also technical people to foster collaboration and cross-fertilization among partners. Also, this type of action helps us create positive synergies between use case and technology providers, helping use case providers to bootstrap the baseline experiments by providing use case providers dedicated technology demonstrators on a limited subset of their specific industrial challenge. Besides all of this, using the demonstrators to track project progress concerning project deliverables, illustrating results as well as spotting the innovation at early stages and finally, ensuring that all the case studies have several partners involved.
The tools developed by MegaM@Rt2 are available online, grouped by theme: modeling and traceability, runtime analysis and systems engineering. The following steps, which will be discussed during the second day of the meeting, include the development of user guides with recommendations on the combination of these based on the requirements specified by the user.
