Industrie 4.0 calls for easy-to-handle solutions that are characterized by high performance capability for real-time, flexible topologies, and integration that also make use of the many possibilities of the digital world. PI has brought about numerous developments that meet these requirements. In this presentation, the technologies of PI are being evaluated in detail using specific use cases against the backdrop of the requirements for production systems for Industrie 4.0. Condition Monitoring, Asset Management and Energy Management will be used e. g. to explain the status quo and further standardization needs for industrial communication technologies. But one technology alone can't make Industrie 4.0 happen. It will be a joined effort, or simply put: "use the right technology for the job at hand!" PI has long been collaborating - often already before the term Industrie 4.0 existed - with committees such as Semantik eCl@ss, Automation ML, integration with OPC UA amongst others.
