Strong foundations enable rapid implementation
The Industrie 4.0 community has laid the foundation with the support of politicians. The Asset Administration Shell standard (digital twin) for Industrie 4.0, the European initiative GAIA-X or the flagship project Catena-X for the digitalization of supply chains in the automotive industry are fundamental building blocks for the DataSpace Industrie 4.0.
However, individual companies or trade associations cannot implement Manufacturing-X alone. Manufacturing-X is more than the sum of many individual projects. The initiative creates a broad alliance of companies, associations, academia and politics. As a public-private innovation partnership, they actively shape digital data ecosystems across industries.
Plattform Industrie 4.0 is the hub of the Industrie 4.0 community, in order to specify and implement Manufacturing-X. It offers the space to think innovatively and strengthens the development of a Manufacturing-X community. The established processes of Plattform Industrie 4.0, as a network of networks and think tank, make it possible to conduct a cross-domain dialogue on Manufacturing-X. In this way, the platform can prepare the development of organizational and stakeholder structures. It can consolidate technical, legal or business administration issues in a tried and tested pre-competitive way. In addition, Plattform Industrie 4.0 will use its broad partner network in Europe and beyond to make Manufacturing-X a globally used standard for the data-driven industry.
