An ad hoc working group, consisting of experts from the technical eCl@ss committees Center for Research and Development (CRD) and Digitalization Expert Group (DEG) as well as experts from the Plattform Industrie 4.0 and the ZVEI, is currently working on a white paper with the working title "Details of the Asset Administration Shell & eCl@ss - Implementation and requirements".
The aim is to create a concrete implementation recommendation for users who want to use eCl@ss in I4.0 scenarios. The document is expected to be published in English at the end of 2019 and addresses the following questions:
- How should eCl@ss be implemented in I4.0 scenarios?
- How can elements of the asset administration shell be modelled with the eCl@ss metamodel?
- What are the requirement from I4.0 scenarios for the further development of eCl@ss?
- How are the content requirements for eCl@ss implemented by eCl@ss working groups?
As a result, eCl@ss users will be able to quickly standardize elements of asset administration shells in eCl@ss and use eCl@ss mechanisms.
