Are you a Master student with a background in Computer Science? Are you analytical strong and do you have experience with requirements engineering? Then this assignment could be interesting for you!

Type internship: Master apprentice or graduation

Background Information

The Factory Automation and Factory Integration (FaFi) group is responsible for the interfaces that scanners offer to the outside world, the so called system interfaces.

In the past, FaFi was implementing all the interfaces butnowadays it offers configurable facilities to other departments so that they can implement the interfaces themselves.

To properly implement the system interfaces, specific rules shall be followed and a lot of knowledge is needed that is typically not in the other departments. Therefore, FaFi provides build-time checkers that validate the correctness of the configurations. The users of the facility in this way get early feedback about their implementation of the interface.
The challenge with the current design is that the current checkers are expensive to be made, extend and maintain.

Your Assignment

Design a domain-specific language (DSL) that will enable our software engineers to replace the existing build-time checker code with human “readable and understandable” set of rules.
• Prove the effectiveness of your DSL by creating a framework that implements it.
• Take into account maintainability and extensibility.
• Migrate one of the existing checkers or create one of the missing checkers with the help of the new framework.

Your Profile

• You are a Master student in Computer Science.
• You have good analytical skills and experience with requirements engineering.
• Experience with DSL, Python and Java or C++ is required.
• Familiar with eclipse modeling framework(EMF), Xtext and Xtend is preferred.
• Open minded, willing to learn and play around.

This is a Master apprentice or graduation internship for 5 days a week with a duration of a minimum 6 months. The start date is as of September 2021.

Please note that we can only consider students who are enrolled at a school for the entire duration of the internship.
