Digitalization in the Automation Domain will give you an understanding on how Industry 4.0 will affect the evolution of automation systems.
In tomorrow’s industrial world, components, devices, or applications will be able to communicate and interact with each other . They work together seamlessly and interoperable – across company, industry, and national boundaries without a leading system. Digitalization Plattform Industrie 4.0 offers concrete technical concept and specifications to achieve this vision. The central concept for semantic interoperability is the Asset Administration Shell (AAS).
Automation systems is heavily influenced by what is happening in the IT industry. Platform Industry 4.0 is one major player defining a framework for the manufacturing industry. But many other important players like the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC), the Open Group and the Open Process Automation Forum (OPAF), NAMUR Open Architecture and Module Type Package are another examples of digitalization.
Communication Technologies like OPC UA and Engineering Technologies like AutomationML are important building block for the evolution of engineering. We will have a separate engineering session to clarify the role of these technologies related to digitalization.
So, with these, and many more important initiatives ongoing, we like to invite you to a conference where we have collected experts from many of these digitalization areas to talk about these exiting initiatives. There will be a mix of high level and detail level presentations.
- New Automation Initiatives
- Digitalization building Blocks
- Engineering as part of I4.0 and the opportunities for the Automation discipline
- Realtime and Digital Twin
