Abstract Title: Industry 4.0 in the manufacturing industry
Abstract: Since several years, Industry 4.0 is becoming more popular. But what does this mean in terms of upcoming new requirements towards the technology stack?
Hardware as well as software components and solutions have completely changed from a very industry-focused approach to an Internet-Of-Things (IoT) driven, rather practical and consumer oriented world.
New requirements are mainly focused on easy-to-integrate mechanisms and light weight IT frameworks and software modules in contrast to legacy system architectures. The overall goal of integrating Industry 4.0 based components is to enable the shop floor to be more independent from complex IT systems and develop a new freedom and responsibility of their own tool implementations.
With several real-world examples this talk gives you a comprehensive overview of current requirements and solutions from sensor to machine up to the factory level.
Also, new business models all around Industry 4.0 like cloud platforms, their advantages and how to contribute as a Machine Builder or App- or Service provider are discussed.
Addressing innovative ways of hardware and software implementation as well as the most recent development methodologies accompanying the Industry 4.0 world complete the presented contents.
