The next stage of Industry 4.0: With the “Manufacturing-X” initiative, the Industry 4.0 platform is creating a sovereign data space across industries and companies – with the aim of enabling multilateral cooperation along supply chains and taking digital value creation processes to a new level.
As a company that has already helped shape understanding of Industry 4.0 by contributing to the Reference Architecture Model Industry 4.0 (RAMI), Pepperl+Fuchs and its subsidiary Neoception will be attending the HANNOVER MESSE trade fair in Germany April 17–21, 2023 to show what the next stage of ManufacturingX evolution may look like. Several exhibits with interlinked content at Stand D76, Hall 9, will demonstrate the intelligent use of different technologies and standards to create continuous digital collaboration within a data ecosystem.
Implementing and utilizing an “Asset Administration Shell” (AAS) as a key component for integrating objects and assets into digital value-added networks lies at the heart of this application-driven concept. The demonstration ranges from discrete medium-sized production environments to corporate structures in the process industry. Interested parties are invited to visit the Pepperl+Fuchs exhibition stand to learn more about the various aspects of digital information access and the digital infrastructure required for this.
