Abstract

This paper presents the concept and implementation of a cloud-based infrastructure platform and tailored tools for graphical user interaction. The goal is the creation of a platform that allows users to generate workflows for their experiments in the field of product design and quality assurance without any knowledge of service engineering and the underlying Semantic Web technologies. An experiment is described as workflow and consists of orchestrated services from several vendors that encapsulate specific tasks. One advantage of this approach is the combination of a cloud-based platform with high-performance computing. Services that encapsulates complex calculation procedures can be outsourced to specific servers. This results in tremendous time savings and allows experts to carry out more experiments with products, which was omitted due to the complexity and the required computing power until now. The possibility to conduct these experiments improves the productive know-how of the companies and enhances the products they are selling.
