The use of standard software such as ERP, MES or CAQ systems is associated with a high implementation, integration and adaptation effort due to different information sources, data formats and processing procedures. Information, for example on products, inspection plans, drawings, rejects or measured values, holds enormous potential for the administration, planning and control of production, which can only be tapped by linking the data consistently.
In the research project "charMant", the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT and the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Information Technology FIT are developing a concept that supports small and medium-sized enterprises in carrying out product and process analyses efficiently and cost-effectively.
The task of the research partners is to provide the companies in the project with a data management system and corresponding apps for data integration and analysis of selected sample processes. With these tools, the companies can label the heterogeneous data of the source systems with metadata, thus enabling a semantic link and thus a detailed analysis along defined company goals.

The project "charMant – schlankes Datenmanagement für produktbezogene Maschinen- und Produktionsprozessdaten in KMU" has been developed within the framework of a cooperation between the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT and the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Information Technology FIT. The IGF project of the Forschungsvereinigung Forschungsgemeinschaft Qualität e.V. (FQS) is funded via the AiF as part of the program for the promotion of joint industrial research (IGF) by the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy on the basis of a resolution of the German Bundestag.
