The Asset Administration Shell reading guide recommends selected “must-read” documents for different reader groups and will be updated regularly.

Part 1: Details of the Asset Administration Shell - The exchange of information between partners in the value chain of Industrie 4.0

Part 1 of the publication series specifies the information model. This is the basis for modeling and for the exchange of information on a file basis or the access to information via APIs. The main concept is the so-called submodel.

Part 2: Details of the Asset Administration Shell – Interoperability at Runtime – Exchanging Information via Application Programming Interfaces

This part extends Part 1 and defines how information provided in the Asset Administration Shell (AAS) (e.g. submodels or properties) can be accessed dynamically via Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). It also describes some infrastructure services: Asset Administration Shells are registered or register themselves and can be easily searched and found without having to know on which server a AAS is hosted.
