Making Industrie 4.0 components interoperable – with the Administration Shell
PLATTFORM PUBLICATION - Manufacturing companies are facing one of the greatest challenges in this age of digitalisation: Digitised industrial production is connecting users, customers, suppliers, IT and machines across different sectors – which have so far adhered to different standards. [UPDATE]
How do you digitalise whilst maintaining production processes and links with suppliers and clients if everyone is using different hardware and software? Companies will be facing this problem – at the latest, when it’s time to take the next decision on what to invest in. The answer is uniform and open Industrie 4.0 standards. These deliver interoperability and ensure that different systems and all components in digital ecosystems work smoothly together. The most important path towards this is provided by the Plattform Industrie 4.0’s Administration Shell concept.
