Today, automation of manufacturing processes in complex plants faces very great challenges. Machines and systems from different manufacturers must interact seamlessly, processes must be controlled, logged and monitored, and the process must be as flexible as possible. Smart Factory 2020 investigates new methods for workflow-oriented programming of automation processes and automatic creation of machine communication. The base technology is OPC UA and the "skill-based programming" paradigm. The developed methods will be implemented and tested in the Center for Smart Manufacturing.
