Actively Shaping the Industry 4.0 Data Space: Pepperl+Fuchs Promotes "Manufacturing-X"

15 May 2023

The next stage of Industry 4.0: With the "Manufacturing-X" initiative, the Industry 4.0 platform is creating a sovereign data space across industries and companies - with the aim of enabling multilateral cooperation along supply chains and taking digital value creation processes to a new level.

As a company that has already helped shape understanding of Industry 4.0 by contributing to the Reference Architecture Model Industry 4.0 (RAMI), Pepperl+Fuchs and its subsidiary Neoception had been attending the HANNOVER MESSE trade fair in Germany April 17–21, 2023 to show what the next stage of Manufacturing-X evolution may look like. Several exhibits with interlinked content at Stand D76, Hall 9, will demonstrate the intelligent use of different technologies and standards to create continuous digital collaboration within a data ecosystem.

Implementing and utilizing an "Asset Administration Shell" (AAS) as a key component for integrating objects and assets into digital value-added networks lies at the heart of this application-driven concept. The demonstration ranges from discrete medium-sized production environments to corporate structures in the process industry. Interested parties are invited to visit the Pepperl+Fuchs exhibition stand to learn more about the various aspects of digital information access and the digital infrastructure required for this.
