Call for Collaboration

The first deployment of the Smart Factory Web testbed was carried out by KETI and Fraunhofer IOSB with equipment supplied by selected IIC members, vendors of field devices and controllers and IoT middleware. Since October 2018 Microsoft makes its Azure platform available for the integration of shop-floor data.

Third-party smart factories are able to register for the Smart Factory Web (SFW) portal. A pre-requisite for registration is a factory model in AutomationML (at optional level of detail), an OPC UA interface and the specification of user roles with designated access rights.

The collaboration between KETI, Microsoft and Fraunhofer IOSB advances the international usage of standards and architecture patterns for IIoT systems. Benefits are expected for data and service integration and advanced plug & work, both fundamental for smart factories.
