For the implementation of the VUM, an architecture has been proposed, which includes the VUM as a knowledge base. The Figure below shows the system architecture of the overall system for implementing the VUM. It is divided into the parts: the backend, where all data of the VUM is stored, the frontend, where company-specific design and testing applications, as well as all client-specific features to obtain recommendations (recommendation module) are integrated. The middleware layer provides a seamlessly accessible connection between the front end applications and the reasoning engine with a socket connection handler and socket server.
Several papers1, 2, 3, 4 and books5, 6 were published in the course of the VICON Project dealing with the VICON architecture.
