The Smart Factory Web realizes an open test environment that combines the two Industrie 4.0 scenarios “order controlled production” and "adaptable factories". The basic idea is to provide a marketplace for industrial production that mediates between production orders and registered factory assets and capabilities. The main characteristics are:
Flexible adaptation of production capabilities and sharing of resources/assets to improve order fulfillment.
Technical basis for new business models with flexible assignment and sharing of production resources.
Open architecture based upon Industrie 4.0 concepts such as the Industrie 4.0 Asset Administration Shell and international standards such as IEC 62541 OPC UA, IEC 62714 AutomationML and OGC SensorThings API.
