How will manufacturing benefit from total integration?

Open system architecture is possible through consistent data management, global standards and unified interfaces for hardware and software. Integration brings the virtual and real world together and includes product development and manufacturing process, increasing efficient production in every process step, from product design to product planning, engineering and the actual manufacturing process including services.

Productivity and efficiency are success factors for manufacturing industries. A central role is played by engineering with regard to increasingly complex machines and installations. There is a demand for a high level of efficiency and the first step towards better production: faster, more flexible and more intelligent.

Fully integrated automation means efficient interoperability of all components. This allows for a holistic optimization of the production process which is as follows:

  • Efficient engineering is possible with cost savings.

  • Integrated communication provides high flexibility in production

  • Seamlessly integrated safety technology is possible while protecting personnel, machines and the environment.

  • Integrated communication provides more flexibility in production.

  • The consistency of data has improved quality.

  • Interoperability of system tested components improves performance.

The entire production process is managed in an open system architecture and is based on the consistent presence of shared features such as consistent data management, global standards and unified hardware and software interfaces. These features are shared and minimize engineering time. The ultimate result of all this is lower costs, shorter time-to-market and more flexibility.

Due to relatively small production volumes and enormous variety of applications, industrial automation makes use of new technologies developed in other markets. Automation companies customize products for specific applications and requirements. Innovation comes from targeted application instead of hot or new technology.

The new innovations have shown new growth in industrial automation in recent decades. The programmable logic controller has now been replaced by relay logic and is generating growth in applications where custom logic has been difficult to implement and modify. This controller is more reliable than relay contacts and easy to program and reprogram. In auto-test installations, growth was rapid and had to be reprogrammed. The programmable logic controller has a long and productive life and has now become a commodity. The programmable controller has been developed through the use of computers for operating systems. Such new developments in industrial automation have provided higher growth potential.
