Following the series of OMILAB Days during the NEMO Summerschool, the OMILAB Day 2020 provides participants with insights on results achieved and planned development within the context of the OMILAB network. Innovative results in the context of research initiatives and projects are presented and discussed.
The OMILAB Day is considered a forum of exchange between nodes, interested stakeholders, developers and users to discuss ideas on modelling approaches and how they support novel business models, provide means for evaluation and assessment and enable creativity.

The Industrial OMILAB Innovation Corner in Vienna: Modelling of Intelligent Behaviour
Presenter: Dr. Robert Woitsch, BOC, Vienna, Austria
Abstract. The digital transformation is a global mega trend that is triggered by the evolution of digital technology, that has the potential for every organisation to either optimize their current business via a digital innovation or by transforming the business via digital disruption. The challenge for every organisation is therefore to select and personalise the appropriate digital innovation. There is a plethora of methods and assessment frameworks, here we introduce the OMiLAB Innovation Corner that assists in (1) creating new business, (2) design the organisational model and (3) engineer proof-of-concept prototypes as a “communication media”. The unique value proposition of OMiLAB Innovation Corner is the model-based foundation that supports decision makers in key phases of the innovation. First, the creation of new business models by providing digital design thinking tools is assisted. Second, the design of the digital organisation by providing extended modelling capabilities is supported. Third, a proof-of-concept engineering providing robots and sensors is enabled. We share our practical exeriences by introducing (a) how new business models are created in the H2020 project Change2Twin to help manufacturing SMEs in their digital transformation, (b) how conceptual models are design in the H2020 project BIMERR to create digital twins of renovation processes and (d) how proof-of-concept engineering is performed in the FFG project complAI to analyse different robotic behaviour.

OMILAB@Work: The EU Project DigiFoF
Presenter: Prof. Adrian Florea, Lucian Blaga University of Sibiu, Sibiu, Romania
Abstract. The requirement for digital transformation was initially felt in industrial domains. With the emergence of the pandemic, this was felt in all activity areas of society. The Digital Design Skills for Factory of the Future (DigiFoF) Erasmus+ KA2 strategic project was written as a possible solution to the challenges caused by digitalization in the manufacturing industry. In my opinion there are three kind of challenges due to digitalization: one which targets the companies and their strategy and management to revitalize existing manufacturing systems using interconnected embedded systems, to optimize the factory floor and increase reliability, repeatability, and revenues, other which target the employees and their personal interest for owning adequate digital skills required at work and the last one aiming the educational system which should include bachelor and master study programs able to prepare students for the future jobs.

Innovation through Digitalisation, Intelligent Enterprise
Presenter: Prof. Dimitris Karagiannis, University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria
Abstract. The fast-paced evolution of technologies and availability of efficient hardware and software components has been driving the digitalisation of physical objects in recent years. Enterprises need to reflect strategically on these changing circumstances to stay competitive and transparently develop and adapt their roadmap for digital transformation to support innovation processes. This observation motivates this talk, introducing the Open Models Laboratory (OMiLAB – www.omilab.org) as an open digital ecosystem designed to support the design of novel business ideas, the decomposition into conceptual models enabling model-value functionality and feasibility assessments as experiments for assessment.
