Global Availability Of Information In Industry 4.0

The core business of Industry 4.0 is to make information available from diverse sources and to link this information. By Herbert Köbel, head of competence centre software, Leuze electronic The origin of the information should be differentiated. This can be achieved by applying the automation pyramid or the RAMI model 4.0 as orientation: On the one hand this provides information, which has been generated on the field or control level. On the other hand it supplies information, which is managed centrally, e.g. in ERP systems.
