Product description

Industrie 4.0 requires a standardized language comprehensible by the various components of a production system and the production IT. To this end, Fraunhofer IOSB relies on Automation Markup Language (AutomationML, 62714) and OPC Unified Architechture (OPC UA, IEC 62541). AutomationML is an open, XML-based series of standards to describe and model production systems including their topology, semantics, geometry, kinematics, behavior and logic. It describes both production resources and manufactured products and production processes. OPC Unified Architecture is a platform-independent series for communication of industrial automation systems. It is also used to manage the description data including security. The joint working group of the OPC foundation and AutomationML e. V. focuses on the combination of the two standards and is headed by Fraunhofer IOSB.
To simplify the implementation of these standards in practice, IOSB has developed assistance tools ranging from graphical modelling tools and conformity tests to converters. In addition, applications which generate process visualization, for instance, in a partly automated way, based on AutomationML and OPC UA, will be presented. IOSB's offer will be completed by workshops and custom-made training sessions.
