DIGITAL DATA CHAIN
How do we implement Industry 4.0 quickly and efficiently? This is the question currently being addressed by many industrial companies. Instead of fiddling around on their own, collaboration is needed now more than ever. Everyone benefits from the exchange of technical information and data: plant operators, service providers and manufacturers of machines and components for the process industry. Operational procedures and processes can be automated to a higher degree and thus made more efficient for all those involved. This is the most important step on the way to the smart factory!
To ensure that everything works smoothly, standards and platforms for the exchange of information between all partners are required. It is precisely these standards and technologies that companies and technology suppliers in the process industry have developed together.
THE THREE TECHNOLOGIES OF THE DIGITAL DATA CHAIN
The digital data chain connects three technologies:
- Automatic identification of physical objects (IEC 61406),
- Digital manufacturer information (VDI 2770) and
- Digital information exchange platforms (IEP)
to a coordinated approach for automated identification of objects in work processes, as well as automated access to information about the objects. The boxes below will take you to detailed information on the respective technology.
The consortium consists of plant operators in the process industry, technology suppliers for the process industry and providers of technical services for plant operators in the process industry. The following link takes you to an overview of all member companies of the consortium.
