Industry 4.0 is a commonly used term. Many technical innovations with manufacturers and users are advertised with Industry 4.0. There are also more and more frequently used terms such as "IoT ready", "RAMI Proof" or "Industry 4.0 seal". The content of these terms is different from manufacturer to manufacturer and rather unclear for users / customers. For this reason, a working group was set up in the ZVEI in order to define criteria and properties for all manufacturers, with which an Industry 4.0 product can be evaluated. Such a determination helps both the manufacturers and the customers. Customers can rely on guaranteed features. For manufacturers, it will be easier to identify products according to Industry 4.0 and to align future developments accordingly. Through annual adjustments, the criteria are always adapted to the current state. The new guideline was also released by Plattform Industrie 4.0 and will be published at the Hannover Fair 2019.
