Advances in the IT-sector have shifted the conventional development of products into the direction of integrated product-service systems. Product-service systems promise a long(er) lifetime due to latest versions of (software-based) services that operate on the purchased hardware. Furthermore, they can be extremely adaptable and thus ensure connectivity and compatibility to other existing or future systems. The aim of this demo is twofold. First, the demo shows that a multi-agent approach is perfectly suited to meet the requirements for product-service systems. Second, we present a complete development environment to easily specify and deploy agent-based solutions, especially for UI-oriented processes involving Augmented Reality technology.
