Within the framework of the EFRE-E|ASY-Opt subproject, the potential of data mining methods in the area of manufacturing is being investigated. Especially the training of Deep-Learning models is a computationally intensive task, which may take hours or several days. The training time can be shortened considerably by using an already trained model, as long as the goal and source task are closely related. This connection is not yet fully understood.

The aim of this research project is to implement a system called REAPER (Reusable Neural Network Pattern Repository) to support data scientists in storing and reusing already trained deep learning models.
