Open Industry 4.0 Alliance at Smart Production Solutions

The Open Industry 4.0 Alliance will be exhibiting at Smart Production Solutions Exhibition (SPS 2022), which takes place from 8 to 10 November in Nuremberg, Germany. The Alliance will present real-life examples and use cases for smart and digital automation. The focus will be on the practical application and sensible orchestration of a wide range of industry standards.

In addition, the Alliance will cover three technological topics during the event: The implementation of the Asset Administration Shell (AAS) and the expansion of Data Spaces and Edge Computing. The Alliance will also highlight why it is becoming increasingly international and oriented towards the end customers of its members and provide information on the progress and expansion of its industry and technology working groups.

“By showing smart production cases at SPS we continue staying true to our motto: ‘Talkers talk, we implement’,” explains Ekrem Yigitdöl, Managing Director of the Open Industry 4.0 Alliance. “As an alliance of practitioners, our members are constantly developing use cases for many industries and creating associated guidelines. The starting point is connectivity on the factory floor, as we have already been able to demonstrate in a case for logistics, for example, with two initial members, and the Flow Loop in the sustainability factory in the Netherlands with a total of 11 members directly or indirectly involved. These two projects are outstanding in their speed of implementation, and we have awarded them the Implementation Award of the Alliance.”

The Alliance’s implementation guidelines are constantly being developed, and initial examples can be found in the download section of the website. These include ‘Technical Solution Design Principles’, ‘Industrial Cyber Security Design Principles’ and ‘Asset Administration Shell AAS’.

Customers of Alliance members, who often come from globally operating, medium-sized industries, are increasingly interested in such implementation guidelines, which, together with the experience of Alliance members, promise accelerated and successful implementation of transformation projects.

“The Alliance is increasingly focusing on internationalisation in order to keep up the pace in implementing exciting projects and to be able to share experiences from other countries with our members and their end customers,” says Ekrem Yigitdöl. “Our working groups and members are also becoming always more active. As a result, we are implementing more projects and can share their results for better implementation.
