In the implementation of I40 the SmartFactoryKL demonstrator has played a key role. It was first presented in 2014 at the HM. In the meantime, this demonstrator has been constantly innovated. The characteristic of I40 has been shown. The revolutionary approach is not to be seen in the one-time fundamental change, but in the openness to permanent change. This is conditioned by the fact that the functionality and performance of the demonstrator and the seamless integration into digital value-added networks is permanently adapted and improved by coupling to the Internet. A key role is played by edge devices that are used directly in the production module.

The SmartFactoryKL shows the implementation of this edge devices in the demonstrator at the HM. Edge devices provide the prerequisite for a learning capability over the entire life cycle of the machine.
