English abstract:
The ability to record environmental conditions with sensors enables the development of applications that can react to changing situations. These context-aware systems provide major benefits for their users, as they allow the customization of their functionalities while decreasing the need for user interaction at the same time. Despite these advantages, context-awareness still plays a minor role in industrial applications due to reasons such as the increased efforts required during the development or the absence of tools to handle the inherent complexity. To facilitate the implementation of context-aware systems, this publication introduces a process model for analysing contextual requirements and defining contextual functionalities. The approach allows the integration of context-awareness into systems and can be used in combination with all common software development methodologies. Further, a method is proposed that reduces the complexity of context-aware systems to a manageable level. To demonstrate how the presented approaches can be applied, this paper finishes by showing the development a context-aware information system for the workers at the shop-floor of an injection moulding company.
