Virtual booth of PI4.0, LNI 4.0 and SCI 4.0

Ten years after the birth of “Industrie 4.0”, the Plattform and its partners have laid important foundations for its implementation: It has matured the Asset Administration Shell and, with the founding of the Industrial Digital Twin Association, brought it close to the market. It initiated GAIA-X and continues to provide impuls-es from the leading user domain. With numerous implementation projects, it accompanies the path of its concepts into industrial practice. The “Charter for Learning and Working” in Industrie 4.0 and the “three de-velopment paths” also focus on sustainability.

At the joint booth with the Standardisation Council Industrie 4.0 (SCI 4.0) and the Labs Network Industrie 4.0 (LNI 4.0), these results are now available. Numerous implementation projects and new publications will be presented in German and English throughout the entire week of the fair. Seven live streams with the ex-perts of the Plattform Industrie 4.0 and video chats with the booth staff provide the opportunity for direct exchange.
