Abstract

Today modern production processes are monitored and controlled via process visualization systems. Engineering of these systems is done manually and often results in high costs and a number of errors. The purpose of the research project “PCFF” is to make a step towards “Industry 4.0” in this context and to increase flexibility of transport equipment and the corresponding software. This paper deals with the basic concept and architecture and highlights project results.

Zusammenfassung

Marktgängige Produktionssysteme werden mit Hilfe von Leitsystem-Visualisierungen bedient und beobachtet. Heute erfolgt die Projektierung dieser Systeme hauptsächlich manuell und verursacht daher hohe Kosten und Fehler. Das Forschungsprojekt PCFF soll die Flexibilität der Fördertechnik und ihrer zugehörigen Software in Richtung Industrie 4.0 treiben. Dieser Beitrag stellt Grundkonzept und Architektur, sowie einige Projektergebnisse vor.
