Many technical details about the Asset Administration Shell are described in the recently published specification ?Details of the Asset Administration Shell. Part 1 - The exchange of information between partners in the value chain of Industrie 4.0 (Version 1.0)?. In this paper, the main use case is to allow the exchange of information about assets and Industrie 4.0 components between partners in a value creation network. The exchange of files needs to fulfil some requirements with respect to usability and security. Therefore, one of the subtopics of mentioned paper is the definition of a package file format to describe how the information of one or more Administration Shells could be packed into a compound file. This presentation will discuss this format, namely the Asset Administration Shell Package (AASX) with special attention to the requirements, technical choices and specification.
