Another goal is to create Manufacturing-X in such a way that the unique needs of the participating businesses may be quickly and dynamically created.
The blueprint research is a significant step in the design and development of the future Manufacturing-X data room, according to Hartmut Rauen, Deputy Managing Director of VDMA. After all, “Making-X’s architecture will play a decisive role in determining what added value companies can derive from the data room in order to make the best use of production data and thereby increase efficiency.”
“In the future, small and medium-sized businesses in particular will be able to share their data with third parties on an equal basis and trade it more readily. Building on existing standards, Manufacturing-X
the usage of so-called EDC connections, the Asset Administration Shell, OPC UA standards in the umati environment, etc.
“In the end, it is about maximizing interoperability for the integration of as many players as possible,” Koschnick concludes. The blueprint research demonstrates how this interaction may occur.
Otto: “Manufacturing-X presents a special chance for the sector to boost its adaptability, competitiveness, and sustainability.
